AspNetCore OpenApi Swagger WebApi

This article will discuss about implementing Open API (Swagger) for ASP.NET Core 6.0 minimal API. Today I saw one video from Maria Naggaga about Minimal APIs. She was showing a demo of Web API with swagger support. So thought I will implement the same. But it was not working for me. I was getting a lot of errors - both compile time and runtime. Then I looked into the ASP.NET Core source code and found one extension method which was not available in the runtime I was using. So I upgraded the version and installed the - 6.0.100-preview.6.21357.52 version and it started working. If you’re not using this version the code in this blog post will not work. You can download the latest version of .NET SDK from here -

In this implementation, you will be implementing distributed caching using SQL Server. In core distributed caching can be implemented with the help of IDistributedCache interface - you can start with MemoryCache in the development and in production you can switch to SQL Server or Redis or any other provider which implements IDistributedCache interface.

Improving Angular CI Build Time Using Azure DevOps Cache task

AzureDevOps Angular DevOps

This article will discuss about improving Angular CI build time using Azure DevOps Cache task. If you’re building Angular applications with Azure DevOps, you will be running npm install command every time even if you’re not changed anything in the package.json. It is a time consuming process. Azure Devops offers a Cache task, which will help you to cache downloaded libraries or tools your build pipeline. In this example, I am using a minimal angular application, which is added to Azure Repo - you can use GitHub or any other source control supported by Azure DevOps. And then I created a build pipeline for the Angular application.
