Eve SDK for .NET v0.2 is out in the wild

I just released a long overdue update to Eve.NET. This release marks a significant improvement over the previous one, which was more a prototype than a real package. New features are as follows: PostAsync() supports bulk inserts DeleteAsync() supports bulk deletes GetAsync() has a softDelete option to include soft-deleted documents with query results GetAsync() has a rawQuery option to pass raw Eve queries to the server BearerAuthenticator class adds support for Bearer Token authentication Several fixes made it into this release and, most importantly, I switched to portable Profile259 which offers support for the following platforms: Xamarin. »

Introducing SimpleObjectCache a simple cross-platform object cache for .NET systems

SimpleObjectCache is a very simple permanent, cross-platform, asynchronous key-value object cache for .NET. It comes with built-in SQLite 3 support. Alternative backends can be added by implementing the IObjectCache or IBulkObjectCache interfaces. How it works First, you need to set the ApplicatioName. This is also going to be the folder where your cache will reside. Depending on the host OS the location of this folder might be different. On Windows it would be something like C:\ProgramData\<ApplicationName>\SimpleObjectCache. »

EveGenie makes Eve schema generation a breeze

Released by the nice folks at Drud, EveGenie is a tool for making Eve schema generation easier. Eve’s schema definitions are full of features, but can take a good amount of time to create when dealing with lots of complex resources. From our experience, it’s often helpful to describe an endpoint in JSON before creating it as an Eve schema. This allows you to make quick decisions about the structure of your entities without spending time moving schema code around. »

Cerberus 1.0 is coming and it is going to be awesome

Cerberus is a lightweight and extensible data validation library for Python. Beta has been around since 2012. During this time Cerberus has been serving as the validation system for Eve core. It has been also adopted by a quite a lot open source projects, averaging around 18K downloads per month on PyPI and collecting some remarkable endorsements.

All things considered, I would dare to claim that Cerberus is battle tested to death. This is, in fact, one reason why I believe that the time for a canonical and stable release has come. Another reason is that next release is a major one. It brings a ton of important new features along with very significant code refactoring and a redesigned, powerful API. Third, next release breaks backward compatibility, and we want to signal that in the version number.

So next Cerberus release will be 1.0. If you have been following the development this will come as no surprise, as a Release Candidate has been out for a while. As a Cerberus user you will want to take the plunge and upgrade to 1.0 because well, it is just too cool to be true. If new to Cerberus you will also want to adopt 1.0 right away, for the same reason. If you are new however, make sure you get the basics covered before reading further. By the way, at latest PyCon Italy I gave a talk on Cerberus which also included a preview of several 1.0 features. You can check the slides to get a general idea of the tool, its usage, and upcoming features.

Let’s now look at some of the relevant features and changes introduced with Cerberus 1.0. For a (mostly) accurate list of changes and new features, have a look at the changelog.
