MVC Turbine with Javier Lozano
MVC Turbine is a plugin for ASP.NET MVC that has IoC baked in and auto-wires controllers, binders, view engines, http modules, etc. that reside within your application. Thus you worry more about what your application should do, rather than how it should do it.
During our conversation we discuss the following questions and topics:
- What is MVC Turbine?
- What are some practical examples for using Turbine?
- Javier discusses the concept of a Turbine “blade”
- How Turbine works with Portable Areas as well as with the Managed Extensibility Framework
- How Turbine facilitates dependency injection and service locator (Javier strongly advises against using service location, but Turbine will support it)
- Learn about Turbines main areas of functionality:
- Custom features
- Inferred actions – how Turbine will return a view that doesn’t have a controller if you are trying to access a static page
- Injectable filters: hydrate instances of filter classes from injection from Turbine
- Register a filter directly to a container
- What about Turbine for non-MVC applications?
- Turbine Version 2.1 is now available
- Turbine now batches registrations
- Future plans
- Leverage MEF
- MVC Turbine Project website
- Javier’s Blog
