The Immutable Null Update -- December 2018

Monday, December 3, 2018 | MyGet

I've come to realise I haven't mentioned any news about MyGet. The feed I setup (The Immutable Null) has started to host some of my NuGets. But, I've neglected to mention them here. Because of this, I've decided to do a quick summary of what is now on there.

So, in no particular order...

Wet Pancake

Wet Pancake is a NuGet package which generates random text. It uses built-in templates (by default) and a Markov Chain algorithm-thing to generate the results. Wet Pancake can accept any of your plain-text (.txt) files as well -- if you prefer to use your own templates.

At this moment in time, there are three releases of Wet Pancake on MyGet. The latest release is 0.9-alpha1. To add Wet Pancake to your project, add the following code into your package-manager (PM) console,

PM> Install-Package WetPancake -Version 0.9.0-alpha1 -Source https://www.myget.org/F/the-immutable-null/api/v3/index.json 

Smouldering Beach Ball

This is .Net Standard 2.0 NuGet package. It provides code which speeds up making placeholder images. It's written in F# and focuses on .Net 4.7, for now.

At this moment in time, there is only one release on MyGet (0.4-alpha1). To add Smouldering Beach Ball to your project, add the following code to your PM console,

PM> Install-Package SmoulderingBeachBall -Version 0.4.0-alpha1 -Source https://www.myget.org/F/the-immutable-null/api/v3/index.json

Death Socket

This is a .Net Standard 2.0 NuGet. It provides code which helps with adding grids to images. This is another package I wrote in F# and focuses on .Net 4.7, for now.

As an aside, please note Death Socket uses System.Drawing's brushes and not System.Media's. In other words, you'll write/read Color.Red instead of Colors.Red.

At the time of writing, there are two release on MyGet. The latest is 0.4-alpha1. To add Death Socket to your project, add the following code,

PM> Install-Package DeathSocket -Version 0.4.0-alpha1 -Source https://www.myget.org/F/the-immutable-null/api/v3/index.json 

Note on the Alpha Bits

As you can see, all three packages are in the alpha phase. I must point out, though, this is what The Immutable Null is for. It is a test-bed for my NuGet package. Once they mature enough, you will start to see them on nuget.org.
