Dotnet core, Azure AD, OAuth and openid connect are all exiting technologies. In this post I will combine them in a Giraffe web application.
During the learning of F# the inevitable question arises on how to use the language for your day to day tasks. You can create a web site using F# using the Giraffe framework. The framework can be found on github. The most amazing part that I found is their documentation. A lot can be found to get you started. A missing piece in tutorials is how to use an appsettings.json file with the Giraffe framework, and that’s what this post is about.
With the release of the dotnet 2.0 framework things are really getting interesting. So I tried to combine dotnet core, F# and Azure service bus. Seems reasonable at first, but as F# is quite new to me I struggled to find any tutorial. Apparently everyone is assuming that when you work in F# you’ll be able to figure things out from the C# tutorials. With this tutorial that’s about to change.
