FSCAuth Released!

Well, I finally got FSCAuth out the door. The licensing options are pretty fair with licensing starting at $30 and with a free demo version which is only capable of connecting from localhost.

You can checkout more and buy it at Binpress

Tags are a go

Tags finally work. Well, I mean the /tags/{tag}/{page} mechanism. The tag index is still blank, but you can now click the tags below this post and see everything tagged meta and what not.

Also, updated to using FSCAuth as the authentication here. It was using it before, but it use to be part of "EFramework". As such, that version was a bit cumbersome in some areas, though the core authentication algorithms haven't changed since I first wrote it.

Also, you may see "work in progress" posts. I'll work on an extra option to hide those, but basically you'll be able to see both blog entries and pages by looking through tags

EView and such

So I've recently added some awesome things to EView. Well, awesome potential at least.

I've added a few very nifty keywords

{!if x==10!}
  X is 10 yay!
{!endif!}

(including if, elseif, else, and foreach variants)

I've added the layout and layout_field keywords, which make masterpage-content crap hella awesome.

and most recently, I've revamped the helper support to actually be useful. For instance, an example for a hyper link is:

{?Hyperlink Location="http://google.com", CssClass=SomeFunction(), Text="foo bar"?}

And the hyper link helper is easy to create also, and is created from the EView T4 template.

One problem I've just thought of though is that when making a base template, you won't be able to have very good inheritance. This is because EViewRender currently does not call base.EViewRender(). To be honest, I'm pretty sure there is no way to have good inheritance for views. What would the relationship even mean? But nonetheless, you can create base classes so that for instance you could have

abstract class HtmlHelper : IEView{
  public string CssClass{get;set;}
}

so that you're not defining CssClass everywhere.

Only thing I need now is to implement some helper functions. I'm thinking of going through the basic HTML tag list. One of the more interesting ones will probably be <select> as that will take an enumerable of some sort. Meh, I'll figure it out when I get there :P
