Compile aspnet mvc views (*.cshtml)

January 26th, 2014

To make a long story short one can compile the views in asp net mvc.

It takes considerable time though so I only activate it for release compilations.

Update the build file with

<MvcBuildViews Condition=" '$(Configuration)' == 'Release' ">true</MvcBuildViews>

Like so:

<MvcBuildViews Condition=" '$(Configuration)' == 'Release' ">true</MvcBuildViews>

I am sorry about all &gt; and &lt; but I don’t have the time right now to make everything look pretty. Just replace &gt; with < and &lt; with > and your good to go.
Or follow the links below with the awesome formatting Stack overflow provides.

Honour those who should. Especially this answer that does the only-release trick.

Exception in AspnetMvc with Razor: Parser Error Message: Expected “}”.

April 28th, 2012

The below text/error can occur if you have missed one of the } in jquery in a @section features{ section.

It can be hard tracking exactly which } is missing because commenting out the javascript code doesn’t change anything – it seems the razor engine doesn’t care about that type of comments.  Instead start the @section{} anew and copy-paste the code in again piece by piece.

In my case it was a totally ok javascript for loop:

for (i = 0 ; i < 12 ; i++) { }

Event though it is correct syntax it makes Razor fail.  Seems to be a bug in AspnetMVC/Razor/Dotnet4.5/Visualstudio11.
I am losing karma by not making the bug easy to reproduce and report the bug.
