Welcome back to my garage fellow Umbracians! Today I am here because I wanna share my second package with you: Our.Umbraco.HiddenValue.
With the upgrade from umbraco 8 to umbraco 9 the way of dealing with configurations and settings changed as the .NET Framework got replaced by .NET Core.
Took me a bit longer than expected but I finally managed to upgrade my package to Umbraco 9. You are wondering what changed in the upgrade? Luckily not much!
You are a backend developer and just want to add a custom dashboard or section to the backoffice, probably just to proof something could work a certain way? Then you are quite lucky today because I will show you how you can do this!
Last time we discussed how dependency injection in umbraco 8 works and that it can become quite tedious the more services and repos you have. I also told you that I created a package to make my life easier.
Since Umbraco launched their version 8 it can handle dependency injection, out of the box. Umbraco headquarter also encourages you to use dependency injection whenever it is possible and spoiler: its almost always possible!
