Attributes Can Provide Code

by admin 30. April 2004 09:41

OK, the first step of Rikxtensible C# has been done. Ever wanted to print "Hello World" via an attribute? This fragment now compiles, and after running through Rikxtensible C# allows the PrivateImportAttribute to provide the code for TestMethod.

class TestClass
[PrivateImport(), MethodImpl(MethodImplOptions.ForwardRef)]
static extern void TestMethod();

static void Main(string[] args)

Obviously, this is only a proof of concept at the moment but soon we'll have compile time code injection for C#.

RikMigrations is a database migration library for .NET based on the migrations facility provided by Ruby on Rails. It allows simple upgrading and downgrading of databases using .NET code (such as VB or C#) either from the command line or built into your application. Unlike many other migration frameworks, RikMigrations is a stand-alone library which does not rely on a large surrounding framework.
