Ninject WebAPI Circular Reference

keywords, ninject, webapi 2, odata, circular reference.

If you installed Ninject MVC for 5 and 3 for some reason this doesn’t work, gives above error.  There are a ton of documented long drawn out fixes, but uninstalling both ninject for MVC5 and MVC3  then reinstalling Ninject  MVC3 fixed thew issue finally.


Hoping to save others time.

Cannot find angular.js

Keywords John Papa HotTowel can’t find angular.js

Been running down bugs on a few pluralsight tutorials.

WEBAPI with Jesse liberty, this leads into Hot Towel.  THe demo was great. I was just applying it towards a different set of data so sometimes I run into issues;


Fix: add src to angular.js

<script src=”scripts/angular.js”></script>[‘$route’, function ($route) {
breeze.core.extendQ($rootScope, $q);
// Include $route to kick start the router.

<link href=”content/breeze.directives.css” rel=”stylesheet” />

<script src=”scripts/breeze.debug.js”></script>
<script src=”scripts/breeze.angular.js”></script>
<script src=”scripts/angular.js”></script>
<script src=”scripts/breeze.saveErrorExtensions.js”></script>
<script src=”scripts/breeze.directives.js”></script>
<script src=”scripts/$q.shim.js”></script> <!– Needed only if you are using to$q –>

WebRTC – Learning the ropes.

At this time the things I am really interested in are inj green and purple. Though not supported yet for Screen Sharing, the API and stream call are available with a plugin.

This will attempt to use STUN over TURN / ICE (TURN-STUN) but for free ;).

SIMPLEWEBRTC is a very nice API I found listening to Lisa Larson-Kelley on Pluralsight. Found that the code was in place here:

Open chrome, copy out HTML and JS.  Copy JS into a scripts file and reference it.

Change the latest.js to

Copy out the HTML and JS, Move JS into another file and reference, then make latest reference site like so:
(in HTML)

<script type=“text/javascript” src=“”></script>

<script type=“text/javascript” src=“~/Scripts/aloc-simplewebrtc.js”></script>

After that you should be good to go.
Here is a set of 3 instances al connected.
