Does anyone else feel as lost as I do in the .NET Identity documentation?

  • ASP.NET Core

    ASP.NET Core is a cross-platform .NET framework for building modern cloud-based web applications on Windows, Mac, or Linux.

    Concentrating on core - our company was quite an early adapter of core, so we were looking for docs and help to get our app working on identity. The docs were really long winded, and the biggest frustration for me was that they all assumed that you were in VS (mac user, rider), and that you were using EF (like WHY would you NOT be using EF?!) - we were using Dapper and so there was pretty much no documentation that would help us. I spent ages going through the source code of identity to work out what it was expecting and what I had to build. Literally days messing about with various options, until one day I finally cracked it. Shudder.

  • Damselfly

    Damselfly is a server-based Photograph Management app. The goal of Damselfly is to index an extremely large collection of images, and allow easy search and retrieval of those images, using metadata such as the IPTC keyword tags, as well as the folder and file names. Damselfly includes support for object/face detection, and face-recognition.

    I spent an inordinate amount of time adding Identity/Auth to my app. Once it works it's great, but it was not trivial to add, particularly as I didn't want the default GUID ID for users, but a straightforward integer ID which means changing lots of code and then debugging random obscure errors until every run is aligned.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
