Export all workouts from Sports Tracker

Almost all sport tracking sites do not have "Export all" functionality. They want you to stay with them as long as possible. The same with Sports Tracker. There is no such functionality on their website, you can export workouts only one by one (which is annoying). But with a bit of JS magic, we can download all workouts in GPX format. Login at http://www.sports-tracker.com/ Go to http://www.sports-tracker.com/diary/workout-list Click "Show more" button at the end of the page until you have all w...

[ASP.NET Core 1.0] Automatic Migrations in Entity Framework 7 (EF Core 1.0)

There is no more public Configuration() { AutomaticMigrationsEnabled = false; } in Entity Framework Core 1.0 (formerly  EF 7.0) Now you can use extension Migrate method during database initialization. For example, you have custom DBInitializer class: public class DBInitialization { public static void Initialize() { using (var context = new DbContext()) { context.Database.Migrate(); // Other db initialization code. } } } There is also async version of this method. This method will apply any pendi...

ZohoPeopleTimeLogger v1.3 - Show me the error

At Novility, we have  found that we cannot log working time anymore. You just press "Make me happy" button and nothing :( When ZohoPeopleTimeLogger tries to make you happy it needs information about current jobs from ZOHO. For example, if I try to log time for January 16 and there is no job for this date I will get an error. But user was not able to see that error. That is fixed in release v1.3. Download GitHub User will see message box with detailed description and nice instructions:

[IoT] Connect Intel Galileo Gen 2 to Arduino Uno via nRF24L01

Guys from Newark element14 have sent me a nice dev board - Intel Galileo Gen2. I was curious because before, Microsoft declared that Windows 10 IoT Core will run on this board. I planned to run my previous benchmark on this board to see if it can beat Raspberry PI 2. Unfortunately, with the latest release they removed this board from the compatibility list :( But this is not a big problem because I have some plans about home automation and I can use this board in it. I have couple nRF24L01 modul...

[ASP.NET 5] Lazy DBContext initialization with Entity Framework 7

I will show you how to do lazy db context initialization with Entity Framework 7. The idea is simple, we need an easy way to get database context in a request. If db context was used in the request we should call SaveChanges method and dispose used context if not we shouldn't do anything. For "client", code should look like this: public class SomeRepository { private readonly IDbContext _db; public SomeRepository(IDbContext db) { _db = db; } public void Add(Item item) { _db.Current.Items.Add(ite...

Here is the MVVM way to bring selected TreeViewItem into a view. First we need an attached behavior. We cannot use regular behavior because we will attach this property through Style. public class BringSelectedItemIntoViewBehavior { public static readonly DependencyProperty IsBringSelectedIntoViewProperty = DependencyProperty.RegisterAttached( "IsBringSelectedIntoView", typeof (bool), typeof (BringSelectedItemIntoViewBehavior), new PropertyMetadata(default(bool), PropertyChangedCallbac...

[ASP.NET 5] Production Ready Web Server on Linux. Kestrel + Supervisord

In the previous article I've used nohup + su + init.d script to run kestrel in a background. But as Daniel Lo Nigro suggested in comments it's much easier to do the same with Supervisor And he was absolutelly right, config is much smaller, and you can easelly see status and output of a program. First, install supervisor: sudo apt-get install supervisor Now you can create config for your application: sudo nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/kestrel_default.conf With following content: [program:kestrel_de...
