So as I got lots of asks to get the code of my Web Server, I’ve decided to create a Codeplex project. You’ll find the source here: https://netmfwebserver.codeplex.com/
It does include the following features:
Examples of usage can be found on this blog. Working to publish a fully functional example.
I have two requests for ASP.NET Development Server.
- When we use the partials or server-side includes (SSI), like shtml, in html source and run the project using The ASP.NET Development Server, it doesn't render the partial. Please consider this in your future efforts as I believe that what Mikhail said in 2009 here (forums.asp.net/.../1469711.aspx) might be obsolete with the enhancement in intellisense. Intellisense is much richer and intelligent since 2009 or VS2008!
- Let users access ASP.NET development server other than localhost. For example via LAN!! This is a very basic requirement in rapidly changing development environment. Here is what comminuty think about this issue stackoverflow.com/.../863980.
Ease of access is one of Microsoft's charm but apparently developers are being pushed away to other options due to the lack of fundamentals. As a ruby on rails developer, I can run four kinds of webservers with three words in shell and the whole LAN can access the application. But as a ASP.NET developer, why can't the ASP.NET developer server extend this courtesy via VS GUI as well as the command line?
I hope someone must be worried at Microsoft and doing something about it!
Please ask your question in the right forum. This place is for .NET Microframework. and the web server I have implemented is VERY far to a normal ASP.NET Web Server.
