Configure Tor with Bridge in Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install tor

After runing tor you can see the log of the tor by

journalctl -exft Tor

If the service started without errors, look at the Tor log

sudo journalctl -b --no-pager /usr/bin/tor
sudo apt install obfs4proxy

then you should get the bridge line. for get the bridge line go to https://bridges.torproject.org/ and get your bridge line.

nano /etc/tor/torrc
UseBridges 1 
ClientTransportPlugin obfs4 exec /usr/bin/obfs4proxy 
Bridge obfs4 132.145.63.40:47347 5C72EEEE587AB1C7021A78707DAB80427F7A9B43 cert=HAZq1DmA4kR1/IFy1TBeSd67BNQI4SDur+U3zxun+G7HCWJ+x66eUyM6/sariPQYDJ9aIw iat-mode=0

Child Component Support in Blazor CSS isolation

The CSS isolation is only applied to the component level by default but you can extend it to the child component using “::deep” attribute in the CSS file. This attribute is the Blazor attribute so, it only understands and parses by the Blazor engine. When “::deep” attribute used in the CSS file, the Blazor engine also applied scope identifier to all descendants of components.

ChildComponent.razor

<hr />
<p>
    paragraph:: This is child component content
</p>
<div>
    div:: This is child component content
</div>
<hr />
@code {
}

ParentComponent.razor

@page "/parentcomponent"
<h3>Parent Component</h3>
<div>
    <p>paragraph:: This is Parent Component content</p>
    <ChildComponent></ChildComponent>
    <div>
        div:: This is parent component content
    </div>
</div>
@code {
}

ParentComponent.razor.css

p {
    color: red
}
::deep div {
    color:orange;
    font-weight:bold;
}

Set up Automapper in ASP.NET Core

Add the main AutoMapper Package to your solution via NuGet.

Add the AutoMapper Dependency Injection Package to your solution via NuGet.

Create a new class for a mapping profile. (I made a class in the main solution directory called MappingProfile.cs and add the following code.) I’ll use a User and UserDto object as an example.

public class MappingProfile : Profile {
     public MappingProfile() {
         // Add as many of these lines as you need to map your objects
         CreateMap<User, UserDto>();
         CreateMap<UserDto, User>();
     }
 }

Then add the AutoMapperConfiguration in the Startup.cs as shown below:

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services) {
    // .... Ignore code before this

   // Auto Mapper Configurations
    var mapperConfig = new MapperConfiguration(mc =>
    {
        mc.AddProfile(new MappingProfile());
    });

    IMapper mapper = mapperConfig.CreateMapper();
    services.AddSingleton(mapper);

    services.AddMvc();

}

To invoke the mapped object in code, do something like the following:

public class UserController : Controller {

    // Create a field to store the mapper object
    private readonly IMapper _mapper;

    // Assign the object in the constructor for dependency injection
    public UserController(IMapper mapper) {
        _mapper = mapper;
    }

    public async Task<IActionResult> Edit(string id) {

        // Instantiate source object
        // (Get it from the database or whatever your code calls for)
        var user = await _context.Users
            .SingleOrDefaultAsync(u => u.Id == id);

        // Instantiate the mapped data transfer object
        // using the mapper you stored in the private field.
        // The type of the source object is the first type argument
        // and the type of the destination is the second.
        // Pass the source object you just instantiated above
        // as the argument to the _mapper.Map<>() method.
        var model = _mapper.Map<UserDto>(user);

        // .... Do whatever you want after that!
    }
}

Change Access Modifier of .resx to Public in Dot NET

Create resource file.
Edit the .csproj file manually.
Search for the embedded resource tag that includes the *.resx file.
Change Generator child tag content to ‘PublicResXFileCodeGenerator’.
Apply “Move to resource”.

<ItemGroup>
    <EmbeddedResource Update="Resources/Resources.resx">
        <Generator>PublicResXFileCodeGenerator</Generator>
    </EmbeddedResource>
</ItemGroup>
