Visual Studio Extension – imbACE.BasicPack – Release Notes

The extension delivers multi-target C# (.NET 4.0, .NET 4.5 and .NET Standard) project templates, imbVeles (imbACE – Advanced Console Environment, imbSCI – Coding for Science) item templates and code snippets. Item templates cover: namespace XML documentation, imbACE Advanced Console and Plugin classes, imbSCI Global configuration and imbNLP Transliteration definition file. Project templates contain custom MSBuild target, that makes copy of NuGet .nupkg file to local NuGet repository, after each build.

Solution with multiple SDK projects, automatic NuGet version updating and .nupkg to local repository

Here are some tips/examples on setting up Visual Studio 2017, that helped me streamline development cycle when working with PackageReference / SDK / .NET Standard project types and building NuGet packages. The post covers: Building multiple targets (in this example: .NET 4.0, .NET 4.5 and .NET Standard) Setting different package references for different targets Setting…

imbSCI.BibTex – a library for BibTex format

After evaluating existing BibTex libraries for C# .NET, I decided to make my own. The most promising one (https://github.com/MaikelH/BibtexLibrary) proved to be incredibly show and buggy, once I tried to load a large BibTex file, exported from Mendeley Desktop. Therefore, I made imbSCI.BibTex from scratch, expanding functionality beyond what was provided by other open source projects.

SharpShell – Windows Explorer context menu extension (notes)

Some personal development notes on using SharpShell library to develop Windows Explorer context menu extension for Windows 7+ and 64bit platforms: Make sure you checked: Project properties > Application > Assembly Information > Make COM Visible Make your own build of the SharpShell library and tools from the source code – to make sure the…

imbSCI & imbACE for .NET Standard, .NET 4.5 and .NET 4.0

Since 15th May, imbVeles libraries are in process of migration from single-target .NET 4.0 framework to cross-platform and multi-target libraries/packages (.NET Standard 2.0, .NET 4.5, .NET 4.0). So far, complete imbSCI and imbACE stacks are converted, as well as, some lateral packages like: imbWEM.CommonData (contains both imbMiningContext and imbCommonModel namespaces), imbNLP.Transliteration and netDXF.Standard. The API documentation is also updated.

netDXF.Standard

The package contains Daniel Carvajal’s netDxf .net library, programmed in C# to read and write AutoCAD dxf files. It supports AutoCad2000, AutoCad2004, AutoCad2007, AutoCad2010, AutoCad2013, and AutoCad2018 dxf database versions, in both text and binary format. It provides high-level approach to the DXF Document.

This is a multi-platform fork of netDxf library from Daniel Carvajal. It allows use of the library on .NET 4.5 and .NET Standard 2.0 with purpose to target Xamarin.Forms and mobile devices. Goals of the fork are:

  • To provide multiplatform support for NuGet package (.NET 4.5, .NET Standard 2.0)
  • To provide DXF rendering library using SkiaSharp and imbSCI.Graph’s SVG capability.
  • To improve XML documentation
  • To create demo Xamarin.Forms 3.0 Windows WPF, Android and iOS demo DXF viewer application.
