Add extensions to register conditions in the Rules module, add Redis Health Check, demo about the Resource Manifest source generator, and don't forget to join our next Orchard Core Pair Programming session! Let's see the details!

Orchard Core updates

Add extensions to register conditions in the Rules module

Here is a summary of the changes:

  • Added new OrchardCore.Rules.Core project.
  • Added the new AddRule<> extensions in the Core project.
  • Cleaned up the OrchardCore.Rules project by using the new extensions.

And it means that now, you can simplify your code by using the newly added extensions to register custom conditions. For example,

services.AddRule<HomepageCondition, HomepageConditionEvaluator, HomepageConditionDisplayDriver>();

Add Redis Health Check

This new feature provides the Redis health check to report the status of the Redis server if Redis is enabled. The health check endpoint is available at /health/live for each tenant that needs to be checked. More information about health checks in ASP.NET Core can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/host-and-deploy/health-checks

Demos

Resource Manifest source generator

If we look at the ResorceManagementOptionsConfiguration today, it has a lot of resources including styles and scripts, and all are hard-coded. The big problem here is the URLs, a lot of times we find bugs for outdated or wrong CDN URLs. Instead of hard-coding all the resources, this PR's goal is to create a JSON file that contains the references for all the scripts and styles.

If we go to the ResorceManagementOptionsConfiguration, you can see the usage of the ResourceManifestGenerator, which will get all the data from the resources.json file and add them to the resources directly.

The ResourceManifestGenerator

So, in a nutshell, just have a JSON file that contains the references for all the scripts and styles, and the ResourceManifestGenerator will get all the data from that resources.json file and add them to the resources directly. And if you are curious about this concept, head to YouTube for a demo!
