I’ve just pushed a new version of the Original Coder Libraries up to GitHub that includes the first draft of the Layers library and architecture.
The libraries are hosted on GitHub: The Original Coder Libraries
This push includes the first version of the Layers architectural library I’ve been working on. It is based on similar architectures I’ve used on a few different projects in the past which proved to be very helpful. From a features and maturity standpoint this could probably be considered the 3rd incarnation (once they are completed, still in alpha).
The library makes it incredibly easy and efficient to build software systems using layers. Especially systems that deal with data that need CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) operations. Using the library it will be possible to implement a full set of CRUD endpoints for a resource (an entity / database table / or the like) in about 100 lines of code.
I’ve included a project named LayerApiMockup that provides an example of what setting up and implementing will be like with the library. It still needs a bit of work and I need to add the add-on libraries for implementing specific technologies (Entity Framework, ASP.NET MVC, etc) but this is a good start.
