Using Dev Proxy in your GitHub Actions workflow on macOS

Lately, I have been working with the Microsoft Dev Proxy, a tool for API simulation, mocking, and testing. One of the things I wanted to try was to use the Dev Proxy in a GitHub Actions workflow so that I could use it in combination with Playwright to test my solutions with mocked APIs. The Dev Proxy is a .NET Core application that can run on any platform that supports .NET Core, so it works on Windows, Linux, and macOS. I chose to use a macOS virtual machine/runner because, at the time of writing, the Dev Proxy cannot automatically trust the root certificate. info Currently there is an issue ..read more

In this post, I will show you how to use the synchronous Azure translation API in Node.js. Calling the synchronous Azure tr ..read more

One of my customers reported that their SharePoint page kept refreshing in Firefox. While investigating the issue, it turned out it was an issue with the Microsoft Graph permission scope that was missing.

Although the solution is simple, I wanted to understand why this was happening. Why does the page keep refreshing?

Protect keys by keeping those out of your VS Code settings

While implementing the i18n (internationalization) features in Front Matter CMS, I wanted to include the ability for users to use DeepL to translate their content automatically. To be able to use DeepL, you need to have an authentication key, and the user will provide this authentication key. Initially, I defined it as a configurable setting in the extension. It is the most straightforward way to do it, but then I realized that keeping the key in the extension settings would be a bad idea as it might lead to a security risk. In this post, I will explain why it is a bad idea and how you can pro ..read more
