Visual Studio 2022 17.6–Http Endpoint explorer

I occasionally switch to Jetbrains Rider and Visual Studio Code, but my favorite IDE is and remains Visual Studio(especially with the Github Copilot integration).  With the 17.6 release a new feature was introduced; the Endpoints explorer.

With the Endpoints explorer, you can view and interact with the API endpoints defined in your solution. To use this feature go to View –> Other Windows –> Endpoint Explorer:

You get an overview of all the API endpoints available in your solution and the available API calls that can be made:

If you right click on an API call, you can choose between Open in the editor to jump to the implementation of the API call or Create Request.

This will create a new HTTP file that can be used to execute the specific request on the endpoint:

Angular --deploy-url and --base-href

As long you are running your Angular application at a root URL (e.g. ) you don’t need to worry that much about either the ‘--deploy-url’ and ‘--base-href’ parameters. But once you want to serve your Angular application from a server sub folder(e.g. ) these parameters become important. --base-href If you deploy your Angular app to a subfolder, the ‘--base-href’ is important to generate the correct routes. This parameter will update the <base href> tag inside the index.html. For example, if the index.html is on the server at /angularapp/index.html , the base href should be set to <base href="/angularapp/"> . More information: --deploy-url A second parameter that is important is ‘--deploy-url’. This parameter will update the generated url’s for our assets(scripts, css) inside the index.html. To make your assets available at /angularapp/, the deploy url should
