Back from break

I have kept with my studies on and off, but got in a dilemma on what I want to code next…
Let’s make it clear that I did finish my very first IOS app, distributed privately.
UI part is not looking good, but it is functional and so far bug free.
Speaking of bugs, I found a bug with my first windows app the “ArcheAge Calculator”
Found a quick and dirty? fix.

What’s next on the table.
– Recode the entire bucket list/todo app once .NET MAUI GA is released. SOON!
– Start working on a portfolio with my future projects via github, and my very own blazor published website

Now I need to figure out whether to keep hosting on the Windows VPS I pay roughly $50USD for, or to migrate and start using Azure?

Todo mobile app progress

Done with:
– Web API to hand out JWT bearer token to limited user
– Mobile app to authenticate user, retrieve Token via API
– Mobile app to save bearer token, and load for httpclient calls
– A way to add token in the httpclient header
– Save login username in preferences.
– Save password securely encrypted locally
– Data Binding to <CollectiveView.ItemTemplate>
– Figure out how to convert DateTime binding data to Date string

Left with:
– Add pages to display category specific Todos
– Add a page to create a new Todo in database
– Checkbox selection to Update data in database
– Checkbox selection to Delete data from database
– Add internet connectivity check before communicating with API
– Return user to login if Token is expired
– Learn QueryAsync, UpdateAsync, DeleteAsync

– Touch up UI
– Testing anything and everything on iphone

Got my token to store/load.

I thought a basic Todo app would be a walk in the park, but having to implement securely storing bearer tokens wasn’t on my mind.
Done with:
– Web API to hand out JWT bearer token to limited user
– Mobile app to authenticate user, retrieve Token via API
– Mobile app to save bearer token, and load for httpclient calls.

Still left with:
– Save certain fields in local preferences storage which aren’t a security risk
– A way to add token in the httpclient header
– Design UI for todo app
– Testing, and release.

The final piece of Daniel Craig. No Time To Die

I’ve only really watched the bond series from the 90’s, but I enjoyed Daniel Craig’s wild version of James Bond over its predecessor. Don’t have much to say about the newly introduced characters in the finale of its series, but the satisfaction is there with a nice concluded story for James Bond.
Also, Billie Eilish killed it for the theme!

No Time To Die延期の延期を終え、やっと映画館で見れた。新規登場人物は色々思うところはあるけれど、ちゃんと完結してスッキリするような作品になってるね。次のBondはいつになるだろうか、誰が演じるのか?!楽しみ。


MVC ? MVP? MVVM? Which should I use for each project?
Yeah, I get it. Depends on the scope of the project.
After programming for a few months, I am still not comfortable with what to use.
Figured out that for web api’s, it’s common or simpler to stick with MVC.
Other than the above, I’ll just revisit this diagram when I’m a lost lamb.

ASP.Net Core App to IIS subfolder

Having trouble publishing your .net core app to a subfolder?
Make sure to double check if you’ve:
1.) Converted that subfolder into an application via IIS Manager.
2.) Created and assigned a new Application Pool. (No CLR, choose No managed code)

As someone who’s worked in a Linux server environment for over a decade, basic things like this was an annoying obstacle. At the end, everything I read and studied to find this resolution will become new knowledge.

Oh yeah..and I wish I could change the display language to English, but this VPS hosting service doesn’t have the pack included with the image. Screenshot is in Japanese, but you get the point.

ASP.Net Coreで初めてのAPIが完成して喜んでいたけれど、サブディレクトリへパブリッシュしたらerror 500が出た。Unix環境がメインだった俺には、Windows Serverはまだまだ未知。いじるのは遥かに簡単だけれど、細かい仕様がまだわからない。そんなんで、自分のプログラム側の問題かと思ったりして解決策見つかるまで10時間近くかかったという。それまでフォーラム読みまくって、色々試した知識は無駄にはならない!

1.) IISマネージャー内でアプリを起動させるフォルダを右クリックして、アプリケーションへ変換。
2.) 新しいアプリケーションプールを作成してから、指定のフォルダへ設定。(CLRバージョンを選ばずにマネージドコードなし)

First REST Web API

今日は基本機能しかないAPIだけど、RESTful web APIをプログラムできた。

Thanks to the loads of resources online, I was able to finish my first REST Web API.
Feeling accomplished as a newbie coder.
