Integrating Tailwind into ASP.Net Projects

Last year around this time I started experimenting with Blazor and quickly found myself in the situation that I wanted to use a CSS framework. So, I started looking for the best way to integrate Tailwind into a Blazor project. I found out that there was no way to integrate Tailwind into the project without creating a project.json and thus having a node_modules directory in the project.

It works as follows: The target calls the JavaScript file via node.js and provides information about project & file path, then the

Advent of Code 2020

Recently, I've discovered the advent of code contest, through public contributions of one of my colleagues. My first thought was that this could be my next coding challenge after I enjoyed Hacktoberfest so much. So, I went to the website of the contest to inform me how it works. It's like an advents calendar, which gives you two puzzles to solve each day till 25th Dezember. I realized that this could be a great opportunity, to dive more into the Go programming language and set up a new repository on GitHub. I will get into more detail and code as I progress through the puzzles, until then, this shall be an introduction into my advent of code series.

I'm starting my first blog

Hey folks, on this blog I will regularly post helpful information about problems regarding my development activities, any new tech trends if I think they are worth to be mentioned and much more. Have a little patience and be curious about what you will find out here. Meanwhile, you can take a look at this post  on over TailwindCSS and how to integrate it into a Blazor project. Happy coding
