Draw .Net Core project relations with PowerShell and yUML
Having a diagram of how your Visual Studio projects interlink, can be a big help. I’ve created a small PowerShell script that will produce the diagram based on the .csproj files in a directory. It will generate Yuml.me diagrams!
Part 2: Calculations with Roman Numerals using C#
In a previous article I wrote how to parse Roman Numerals in C#. This article will focus on how to calculate with the class in an intuitive way. It will show how to implement implicit casting and the add and subtraction operator overloads. Fun stuff that’s probably useful in other projects.
Part 1: Parsing Roman Numerals using C#
Lately I’ve become fascinated with the Latin language. I’m working on a project that converts photographs of Latin inscriptions on medieval statues into translated text. One of the challenges is parsing years, usually expressed in the form of Roman Numerals.
After building a parser class I noticed that it had a lot of nice characteristics: parsing, operator overloading, implicit conversions. A nice way to play around with C#.
Dynamically map JSON commands to object methods in .Net
Lately I’ve been playing around with USB led lights in .Net. I wanted the animations to be separated from my code. Wouldn’t it be great if you could define what animations are executed in a JSON file? And map it to code?
Normally one would build a mapper that does the conversion of the JSON commands to the methods. I like to use a more generic approach. I’ve created a small utility class that executes commands by mapping and executing them as a method of the object.
