  2. Custom user roles and role-based authorization in ASP.NET core

    I've recently been trying to contribute to the developer community, in more ways than I previously have.

The aim is to provide answers primarily to questions budding developers are asking. so Let's hope I do a lot of that as time goes on. Hey, I might...

I share this as a retrospective for myself and in hopes of helping you avoid the swamp and to stay on the narrow road.Update: This approach works with the 1.0 release of Asp.Net Core as well as RC2.Host Asp.Net with Kestrel without IIS for an internal app. I'd like to hit the machine at http://machine-name/ and get redirected to a login at https://machine-name...

For backend developers like me, It’s the best option so far, especially because my usability and design skills suck.However, I still find some web systems and websites which don’t implement a correct pagination getting all the data from database and leaving the work for the Jquery Datatable component. So, what’s the problem in that approach? I could list...
