My Top 5 Blog Posts from 2012

On this last day of 2012, I'd like to look back and share my top 5 most popular blog posts from this year.

5. On January 8, I introduced a CoffeeScript Assertion Library called ExpectThat. ExpectThat makes it easy to create expressive, self-documenting assertions in CoffeeScript with a syntax similar to that provided by FsUnit.

4. In September, an example of a Single Page Application with Backbone.js, ASP.NET Web API, and F# was provided. This was then added to the F# and C# ASP.NET MVC 4 project template.

3. At the end of January, an example was given for how to use ExpectThat with Mocha to test a jQuery plugin. This example builds on a nice post by Josh Bush entitled Testing jQuery plugins with Node.js and Jasmine and it includes examples for both browser and Node tests with Mocha and ExpectThat.

2. In March, I announced an addition to the F# and C# ASP.NET MVC 4 template that makes it easy to create modern HTTP services with ASP.NET Web API and F#.

1. And my most popular post from 2012 was an example of a Single Page Application with Knockout.js, ASP.NET Web API, and F# . This was later added as an option to the F# and C# ASP.NET MVC 4 project template.

Happy New Year!
