In one of my previous posts on Aurelia, I set up Aurelia with ASP.NET, using jspm to load my scripts, and Babel to transpile the ES2015/2016 (previously called ES6/7) to ES5. The problem is, this happens on-the-fly. This will reduce the speed of our app, as there is extra processing done when the user requests a page. Also, there is no reason to do this, as the scripts can be transpiled before deploying (i.e. when building our app in Visual

Aurelia is a great framework for a SPA, but one thing that is missing, I feel, is getting server-generated templates. By default, Aurelia uses the moduleId to fetch a static HTML file. Take this configuration: router.configure(config => {[ { route: [”,’Welcome’], moduleId: ‘./welcome’ }, { route: [‘About’], moduleId: ‘./about } ]); }); When you navigate to #About, two calls will be made: If your view is at some other location, you can customize the ConventionalViewStrategy.convertModuleIdToViewUrl function: ConventionalViewStrategy.convertModuleIdToViewUrl

Update This post is no longer up to date, as you can now bind to the files attribute of your input element: <input type=”file” files.bind=”files” /> This would bind to the files property of your viewmodel. This was the original post: I’m getting up to steam with Aurelia and really like it. One thing that is missing, though, is one-way databinding from view to viewmodel. There is a GitHub issue for it, so I suspect this will be included at

A small post for my own reference, and yours if you need it. It took me a while to get this working. In ASP.NET 5, the WebAPI Controller is no longer the same as the WebAPI 2 Controllers we’re used to. These Controllers are quite specific on how they accept content. Aurelia has an easy way of posting to a Controller: import {HttpClient} from ‘aurelia-http-client’ @inject(HttpClient) export class MyViewModel { constructor(http) { this.http = http; } callService() {‘http://some/url’, {

Aurelia is Rob Eisenberg’s new framework for SPA’s (single page applications), and I wanted to set it up in combination with ASP.NET. I’m a fan of Angular, but I’ve been watching Aurelia closely too. Angular has a large following, which I find very important, because it guarantees you will have quick and easy support when you encounter a problem. But I dabbled with Durandal and like Rob Eisenberg’s approach. It feels like there has gone a little more thought into
