Blog Posts from October 2019 (page 1 of 1)

Hawk Notes, Volume 4

I rolled out a small update to my blog: It's now reading the blog posts from a GitHub repo instead of an Azure DevOps repo.

Only reason for the swap is to get programmatic public access to the repo. Azure DevOps supports public projects but REST access still appears to require authentication. Personal Access Tokens work just fine, but they expire which is a pain in the backside.

Maybe anonymous access to Azure Repos REST services gets enabled in the future, but I didn't want to wait. It was pretty easy to port the Azure DevOps REST Wrapper to Octokit. My code was already using TPL Dataflow to load all the post metadata from the Azure Git repo. All I really needed to do was change the client initialization code and the URL construction scheme and I was good to go.
