Open Source Clarizen Projects


Pull,Push,Pull,

Push,Release…..

Since starting (and finishing) my Clarizen Appathon application, I have decided to carry on and release them so anyone can use them – i.e. fix and release the brute code of the Clarizen.NET wrapper. Today I have move forward with that goal by completing the console version of my tool PlainClarizen, which will help me rapidly implement the required entities for Clarizen.Net quickly. So here are the links if anyone would like to follow the repos.

  1. Clarizen.net: Wrapper for the RESTful API – this is nowhere near finished and I wanted to just get some simple methods in place to pull down and query tasks. There is a simple fluent CZQL creator as well. The coming weeks this will gather pace, so if you are interested watch the repo.
  2. PlainClarizen: Simple application that pulls down a list of available Clarizen Entities and serializes them into POCO C# class files. I started building this so I easily create strongly typed objects for the Clarizen.NET wrapper.
  3. Clarizen2Trello: My Appathon submission. Once the Clarizen.Net is in Beta, my next task is to make this a good and robust application.

All Clarizen, and no play……

With Windows 10 looming, I’m really only going to work on this for the next month, desperately trying to ship Clarizen.Net out so other developers can start hacking and using it. Reason: Working on a Raspberry Pi 2 IoT App in August for Windows 10……

Fresh new Theme, Fresh New Direction


making sweet code.

I have had the old Theme for this blog since its inception a long time ago, and it has not aged well. I have updated with a fresh new look which hopefully reflects my own life at the moment and the direction it is going, which is good. I’m currently extremely busy creating my own site (quick Single Page Application using Knockout.js), learning Windows 10 UWP development, especially for the Raspberry Pi and the IoT branch, plus a number of small projects (like the Clarizen Appathon), so alot going on,

If anyone is interested, my projects are hosted on my Trello Page.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update on the following Open Source Projects i contribute to:

  1. MvcImage – Now has been released as Stable Release. I’ve removed the Bradaz.OpenSource Project reference and updated the project to use a reference to the assembly dll instead.
  2. Bradaz Utilities – I’ve released the Bradaz.OpenSource project on Codeplex. It includes the following.
    •  Stream class to help handle common I/O Stream activities like, RewindStream.
    •  Image class to help handle common Image activities like, ImageToBinary, FromStreamHeight, FromStreamWidth, FromByteHeight and FromByteWidth . There are some methods to help create Thumbnails.
    • MVC class to help handle common MVC activities like HTML Helpers to handle images and some Debug classes to interrogate ModelState.

I will be adding to this as i build more utilities.

I’ve recently joined Dev Circle and we hope to create more Open Source Projects together, one being an MVC Project using EF. Watch this space.

[MVC 3] MvcImage Project……Its Alive!…..


Over the last few months i have done the following blog posts to explain how to handle images using MVC and various technologies like JQuery and Entity Framework. Now the majority of hits i receive are concerning these blogs posts, so obviously Image Handling is a common Achilles heel. The posts are also being referenced in forums to answer Image related questions. So i have decided to create a Open Source project which combines all of these blog posts into one solution for people to use. This project can be found here for anyone who wants to use it:

Codeplex: http://mvcimage.codeplex.com/

Github: http://garfbradaz.github.com/MvcImage/

At the moment it includes everything i have blogged about and shows you how to extend the RegisterModel to include adding Images when registering a new user. I will be adding the following to the project moving forward as i want this to an organic project that grows:

  1. Adding Thumbnails to the database and displaying these
  2. A details page of users so you can view their details and the images – A User Dashboard for the Admin
  3. A Image FileResult.
  4. A PDF document explaining what the Project does and where.
