“AlphaFS is a .NET library providing more complete Win32 file system functionality to the .NET platform than the standard System.IO classes“: alphaleonis/AlphaFS · GitHub.
One big advantage is long file name support (up to 32 000 characters) but this library also provides ‘forgotten’ Win32 capabilities:
- managing hardlinks/symbolicLinks,
- enumerating local and distant drives,
- working with file/folder compression,
- working with transactions,
- querying disk geometry and available space (DiskSpaceInfo),
- querying volume capabilities (VolumeInfo),
- and many more.
How to use MEF to embed Visual Studio 2015 editor and Roslyn compiler/tools in your own programs: SLaks/VSEmbed · GitHub.
Also an interesting in depth view of how MEF have been used in VS 2015: MEF v2, Roslyn, and Visual Studio: An Adventure in Compatibility.
Some clarifications about HttpClients (System.Net.Http.HttpClient and Windows.Web.Http.HttpClient). With a small mention of a third one (ASP.NET Web API version).
It could be a joke…
We can understand that different implementation exists but why API are not normalized? Too much separated team without a direction. Technical management should exist.
