Calling the Google Closure Javascript Compiler – Code

יום שלישי, נובמבר 10, 2009

Here’s a follow-up to the last post that contained a few screenshots showing the integration of the Google Closure Javascript compiler in Visual Studio. Since I said in the last post that I would make the source available if there was interest, I’m doing that now. The project structure is as following All of the code for accessing the compilation service is in the GoogleClosure project. Initially I didn’t have a Winform project. I split the projects for this post, realizing that some people interested in the code might not have CodeRush. The GoogleClosure project also contains the UI in a...

Integrating Google Javascript Compiler in Visual Studio

יום ראשון, נובמבר 8, 2009

Friday, Google released some of their Javascript tools. Among them the Closure Javascript compiler. Being excited that Google has released Closure (the compiler), I decided to give it a go. So late Saturday night after the party was over and the kids were sleeping, I played a little with the online UI when I saw that the compiler services are exposed through a REST web service. At that point it would be a crime to go to sleep. 2 hours later… In this screenshot you can see some compiler statistics. (Yes, you can use the compiler service as a pretty-printer or...

Visual Studio Color Scheme – Done for now

יום שני, פברואר 9, 2009

After a tough last week where I spent far too much time debugging encryption keys, I needed something to relax. I haven’t tweaked my Visual Studio color settings in a while (a couple of years) so I spent a couple hours today refining them. You probably don’t want to know what I do when I’ve had a really bad week. Ok, I’ll let you know. I put on some music I like and watch Defrag. Preferably at 2 AM. I don’t know who’s idiotic idea it was to remove the graphical defrag interface from Windows, but I have Diskeeper which...

Building a Lean Development Machine

יום שני, ינואר 12, 2009

The time to rebuild my development machine had arrived again. I’ve been running Vista 32 bit for about a year. I was basically happy with Vista as a development machine, but something else had bothered me over the last couple of months. All the mundane crap that was clogging my system. For example, Skype, Trillian, ITunes, Hamachi, PDF readers, MS Office … The list goes on and on… I want a super lean installation of Windows 2008 Server x64, Visual Studio 2008, Sql Server 2008 x64, TortoiseSVN, VisualSVN, CodeRush and WinMerge. The choice of Windows 2008 Server is to match our production...

Self Installing Windows Service

יום ראשון, ינואר 4, 2009

Recently I had to initiate some background worker in a Windows Service. Writing a Windows Service with the built in .Net support is a  no-brainer. The thing that caught me by surprise was that all the documentation states that I needed to add an installer for the service to run. After a little looking  around, it turned out that it is not so difficult to create your own custom installer. I ended up writing a small class that can handle any service and thought I’d share it here. The Windows Service part functions only as a bootstrapper for the real...

CodeRush Plugin – Navigate to Implementation Part 4

יום חמישי, דצמבר 4, 2008

This is the last post in series on developing the navigate to an implementing method plugin. Here are links to the previous posts, part 1, part 2 and part 3. Just to recap, the goal of the plugin is to be able to position the caret (what most people call the cursor), on a method call on an interface variable and navigate to specific implementations of the method. In this post we’ll look at how we navigate to the correct method. The call to navigate is made when the navigation provider (part of CodeRush) receives the navigation event. private...

Visual Studio Team System – Database Project won’t compile

יום שני, נובמבר 24, 2008

We use Database Projects to keep multiple versions of our databases in sync (both schema and data). Lately I’ve encountered several annoying build errors. The cause for all of them seemed to be related to the fact that the validation database had gotten out of sync. Partial error message (so that SE can pick it up): Error 7 TSD7031: An object with name already exists in the database project… Solution: Close the database project. If the validation database is still present on the server, delete it. (The name of...
