Tue, 24 Aug 2010 21:32:02 GMT

In addition to blogging, I'm also using Twitter. Follow me @matthawley


I’ve finally decided that it was time to do another WikiPlex release. It’s been awhile since the last release (March of this year), but a lot of things have changed over time that I finally officially package a new version up. The CodePlex website continues to use WikiPlex, and I’m (read more...)

Tue, 13 Apr 2010 15:12:10 GMT

I'm using Twitter. Follow me @matthawley

Previously, Jeremy Skinner posted a very thorough guide on setting up Mercurial in IIS. The difference between his guide, and what I'll be walking you through, is how Mercurial is hosted in IIS. Where he shows you using a CGI script that executes python.exe, my guide will show you how to use isapi-wsgi to host Mercurial. (read more…)

Mercurial Conversion from Team Foundation Server

Wed, 17 Mar 2010 16:12:46 GMT

I’m using Twitter. Follow me @matthawley

One of my many (almost) daily tasks when working on the CodePlex platform since releasing Mercurial as a supported version control system, is converting projects from Team Foundation Server (TFS) to Mercurial. I'm happy to say that of all the conversions I have done since mid-January, the success rate of migrating full source history is about 95%. To get to this success point, I have had to learn and refine several techniques utilizing a few different tools… (read more)

Extending WikiPlex with Scope Augmenters

Wed, 10 Mar 2010 17:46:32 GMT

I’m also using Twitter. Follow me @matthawley

Another extension point with WikiPlex is Scope Augmenters. Scope Augmenters allow you to post process the collection of scopes to further augment, or insert/remove, new scopes prior to being rendered. WikiPlex comes with 3 out-of-the-box Scope Augmenters that it uses for indentation, tables, and lists. For reference, I'll be explaining… (read more)

Following up from my prior post on Extending WikiPlex with Custom Macros it’s now time to talk about creating custom renderers. When we left off, we had created our title link macro and registered it with WikiPlex…[read more]


Extending WikiPlex with Custom Macros

Mon, 27 Jul 2009 17:48:09 GMT

One of the very nice features of WikiPlex is the ability to extend it to your hearts desire. The API is completely open, and the entry points off of WikiEngine are merely wrappers. This means that, if you really wanted to, you could create your own parser and formatter - but the majority of extending WikiPlex will be done via macros and renderers. A summary of the extension points include… (read more)

MEF + Factories

Fri, 28 Nov 2008 20:13:32 GMT

Lately I've been really digging into MEF and have been looking at it's pros & cons, ease of use, extensibility, and the simple DI container that it can provide. I'm not going to give an overview of MEF, as others have done so already. What I am here to show off is a concept that may prove useful for some applications. Many of us use a DI container in very simplistic ways, as well as registering injection strategies during type resolution. Read more …

Plea for Help: WCF 404 Error

Sat, 07 Jun 2008 02:32:30 GMT

I’m putting out a plea for help. For some odd reason, we have a WCF service (running in IIS 6) that’s using streaming and BasicHttpBinding that will return a 404 error message every time it’s called from our client. Hitting the same URL on the box itself through IE renders the WSDL just fine. If you have seen this issue, please contact me. We’ve been struggling with this issue and have yet to find a resolution. BTW, it works great on another web server that is configured the same, and we’ve looked at all of the verbose logs WCF can give us. Ultimately, we’re seeing the message being sent from the client, and a 404 in the IIS log, but nothing on the server logging. Thanks!

ViewData "dot" Notation Expressions in ASP.NET MVC

Thu, 29 May 2008 12:53:26 GMT

Here's something very cool I just found in the ASP.NET MVC Preview 3 bits, you can specify, what I call, "dot" notation expressions on your view data. With the new ViewDataDictionary you can now use the "dot" notation expressions to get access the same value as using the safely typed Model. (Read More...)
