Introduction To Glimpse Hi, this is John Sonmez from Pluralsight and welcome to this course on using Glimpse With ASP. NET and MVC4. Glimpse is one of those tools that I believe every ASP. NET developer, whether you develop with WebForms or MVC, should have in their toolbox. Many developers when they first look at Glimpse dismiss it as another tool like the Chrome Developer Tools or FireBug because at a surface level, Glimpse looks very similar. In this course, I'll show you why Glimpse is very much different from the Chrome Developer Tools or FireBug; you'll also learn everything you need to know to get started with Glimpse and even how to extend Glimpse to customize it for your own data;
Glimpse ASP.NET Tabs Hi, this is John Sonmez from Pluralsight and in this module, we'll be looking at the Glimpse Tabs that work with ASP. NET. Glimpse has a lot of information, but if you don't know what you're looking at, it can be a little confusing. In this module, I'll take you through all the tabs that work with ASP. NET applications in general and we'll see how each tab works and what valuable data it contains. I'll also show you how you can see Glimpse data on AJAX requests and even how to use Glimpse with mobile devices like your phone or tablet. We'll be using the default MVC application we built in the last module, but you can use just about any ASP. NET application and follow along.
Debugging ASP.NET MVC 4 Hi, this is John Sonmez from Pluralsight and in this module we'll be looking at the Glimpse Tabs that are specific to ASP. NET MVC and learning how to use the information from Glimpse to debug a real ASP. NET MVC problem. One of the things that makes Glimpse such a useful tool and different from other diagnostics tools is that when using it with a framework like MVC, it can give us actual information about what is going on inside the framework itself. Glimpse's MVC tabs give us details about how MVC models are bound, what is happening in the pipeline, and more. In this module, I'll walk you through the MVC-specific tabs and help you understand what the data you're looking at is. We'll also go through a real world example of an ASP. NET MVC problem we can solve using Glimpse and look at some advanced configuration options.
Glimpse Plugins Hi, this is John Sonmez from Pluralsight and in this module I'll be showing you some of the awesome Glimpse Plugins you can use to get valuable information about other technologies and frameworks you may be using in your application. We'll be taking a look at all the plugins that are currently available for Glimpse and learning how to find and install the plugins. I'll also take you on a whirlwind tour of some Glimpse Plugins for some of the popular technologies and frameworks that I find pretty useful. As you'll see in this module, plugins really can extend the functionality of Glimpse and make it as powerful of a tool as you want it to be.
Creating A Glimpse Plugin Hi, this is John Sonmez from Pluralsight and in this module I'll be showing you how to create your own Glimpse Plugin. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to discover just how easy it is to create a plugin for Glimpse. Glimpse was really designed with extensibility in mind as you'll see shortly. We're going to walk through the entire process of creating a simple plugin in Glimpse that is able to capture some information when a request starts and, again, when the request ends. This plugin we'll be creating in this module is fairly simple, but I'll also tell you about how you can use some additional extensibility points to create more complex plugins as well. By the end of this module, you should have a deeper understanding of how Glimpse works and understand the basics of creating a plugin for Glimpse and formatting data in the Glimpse client.
