  • Umbraco

    The simple, flexible and friendly ASP.NET CMS used by more than 730.000 websites

    Project mention: Integration testing in Umbraco 10+: working with examine | dev.to | 2023-01-22

    I discovered that I could recreate the behaviour manually if I deleted the TEMP index files. For about 1 minute I got 0 results, but then it fixed itself. Using the debugger, I discovered the ExamineIndexRebuilder class and the RebuildOnStartupHandler. As it turns out, these are the key classes that handle index initialisation. There were a few changes that I had to make in order to get my integration tests to work:

    Project mention: ConcurrentDictionary as a job queue? Better data structures? | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2023-01-16

    Yes, I already do that and have OTLP integration and use a few Google Cloud products for custom metrics. But I work on an Open Source project: https://github.com/squidex/squidex There are 2 reasons for built-in metrics: 1. Provide basic metrics for my users, even if they do not use any of these solutions. 2. I need the metrics for billing and to implement API call limits. Therefore there are different aggregations. Some metrics are aggregated by month, other by day. To check whether a limit has been reached I only need one request on a primary key.

    Project mention: Postgres / MySQL / SQL Server? | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 2023-03-13

    I maintain an open source .NET CMS and it uses Entity Framework for 90% of the application, but the remaining 10% uses Dapper with SQL Server's JSON functionality. I received a pull request for potential support for MySQL, but it does not address that JSON functionality issue. I think it may be worth it to spend some time to support both SQL Server and MySQL or Postgres.
