As if developing ASP.NET MVC applications with S#arp Architecture couldn't get any more flippin' exciting... I'm pleased to announce S#arp Architecture Contrib which promises to take S#arp Architecture into new territory, such as providing better support for WinForms, making available a number of optional add-ons (such as PostSharp enhancements), and encouraging further opinionation (is that a word?) of S#arp Architecture with various alternatives such as specific security providers and view engines, such as CRUD generation for Spark.
It's always been very important to me and the contributors of S#arp Architecture that the core framework remain tight and clean. The introduction of S#arp Architecture Contrib now opens the door to many more options for its use without compromising that vision. (To emphasize this, even the WCF modules in #Arch will be moved to the Contrib project to make the core of #Arch that much leaner.)
Tom Cabanski is leading this Contrib effort and has already put a great deal of effort into making both the code and related documentation available for your review. The source may be found at http://github.com/codai/Sharp-Architecture-Contrib with supporting documentation to be found at http://wiki.sharparchitecture.net/SharpArchContrib.ashx. Your feedback on the S#arp Architecture forums on its current direction is most welcome!
On a related note, I'll be speaking at the Nov. 4 Virtual ALT.NET meeting to discuss the first quarterly release of S#arp Architecture (coming soon!) along with a couple of specific topics related to developing S#arp projects. Appropriately enough, Tom Cabanski will be joining me to give an introductory overview of what's in the Contrib project and where it's headed.
