Ninject.Extensions.Conventions ported to work w/ WP7

I have been using Ninject on WP7 now for a few months and I am just now getting around to porting the conventions library (this allows you to NOT have to manually bind all your classes but rather use a convention based approach).  The port of this was pretty simple and can allow you to remove many, many lines of PITA code.

**** Please note, i have NOT put this through ALL of the paces so it is possible only the simple paths work now ****

To use the convention based approach all you need to do is use the code below

IKernel kernel = new StandardKernel();
    x =>
            x.From( new List {Assembly.GetCallingAssembly(), Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly()} );                    
    } );

To get this to work in your project you will need to reference the Ninject.Extensions.Conventions.WP7 assembly.  I have posted the assemblies here and the code here (for now, will push to github this week)

Hope this helps other WP7’ers

Till next time,

Derik - how has the perf been running ninject apps on an actual WP7 device? Perf has been my major concern about bringing some of my favorite tools over to WP7 (like ninject)

I really have not seen any issues w/ perf when using these tools to be honest.  And I have a real device to test on as well as the emulator.
