Using IAsyncEnumerable with Dapper

When using IEnumerable in asynchronous context, you could not await it. With the introduction of IAsyncEnumerable it becomes possible to asynchronously iterate over a sequence of elements. It allows you to use the await keyword within the loop, which means you can perform asynchronous operations on each element as you iterate over them.

In other words, IAsyncEnumerable provides an asynchronous version of the IEnumerable interface, making it easier to work with asynchronous data streams. You can use it to represent data streams that are produced asynchronously, such as a stream of data received over a network or a series of results returned from an asynchronous database query.

I was wondering if I could use this interface with Dapper, the open source micro-ORM for .NET. It turned out that there was no IAsyncEnumerable  support available out-of-the-box but maybe we could (easily) add it ourselves?

I created the following extension method:

Here is an example on how to use it:

Don’t know if this is a foolproof implementation but maybe it can help you…

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

I ran into an issue after accidently enabling HSTS for a website on localhost. This was not an issue for the original website that was running in IIS and had a certificate configured. But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
