The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Wait till you implement a small microservice, and 6 months later you need another microservice so you fire up another ASP.NET Core 3.1 project and use NuGet to get the various packages you need, and suddenly, running on the same server, all these bizarre dependent DLL's can't be found because whatever you did to get them on your server for the first project, well, the second project, which now uses newer versions, those don't exist on the server.

And given this is a production server, I'm reluctant to update all those DLL's, as it might break something in the other existing projects.

So my solution? I copy the entire SLN of the microservice that is running, replace various C# files with the functionality I need in the new service, and it works.

F***ing mess, is what NuGet and Core 3.1 is.

.NET was supposed to "solve" DLL hell. It's come back with a vengeance.

Yes, I suppose I could edit some obscure config file somewhere that says "use this version of this package", or manually select the package version I used previously when installing the NuGet package, but really? Why? Why do I need to go through all this extra work?

Oh, and I also blame the open source community. So many updates, constantly, it doesn't take six months for something to change. In some cases, it takes mere hours.
