AngularJS validation directives library

I wrote a set of directives that make validation in AngularJS a tad simpler.

The directives are available at

I have detailed about the directives on my company website

and there is also a jsfiddle to play with

The only developers who haven't done Google Driven Development are COBOL Developers, Turbo Pascal and languages on that same era. Googling makes everything faster and correctly only if we follow this rule, "Trust Google but Verify"

Google is a tool, just as any other tool, how effectively it is used depends on the intelligence, skill and experience of its user. So GDD is actually not bad as long as the developer knows how to do research.

Good one...

Pay attention to the camel casing, the attr name must be "redirectType"

Caching Images downloaded from web on Windows Phone Isolated storage

I was helping on a Windows Phone application where the requirement was to cache the images the phone downloads on the isolated storage for offline viewing.
I wanted a solution which was simple and as transparent as possible. While researching I found  someone wrote a Silverlight converter for loading images from isolated storage. Taking that as a base I created a converted which can
Load image from web (http + https), and persist it to isolated storage.In case of network connectivity issues can load the same image from isolated storage. It does that by mapping the http url to a isolated storage location.In case the network is down and the image is neither there in cache, loads a default image, passed as parameter to converter.Here is the gist for the implementation.

To use the converter
Import the name space.Declare the converter as resource.Set the Image Source Property to use this converter like this 

IIS Url Rewrite and HTTP POST data

If you play around with IIS Url Rewriting rules and try to do redirects on an HTTP POST you loose your POST data.

To make sure you get the post data you have to set the `redirectType` to `Temporary` within your rules. So the action configuration looks like this

<action redirectType="Temporary" type="Redirect" url="http://{HTTP_HOST}{REQUEST_URI}"> </action>
You may think what scenario warrant a POST request redirect. We faced one such scenario while doing SSO with a federated Identity Provider (IP)  such as Google, Azure AD. In federated authentication scenario once the user is authenticated by the IP, it redirects back to your site with claim tokens in a POST request over secure channel (https). In our case we wanted to redirect to user back http after receiving the request. But any redirects were causing loss of token. By doing a 307 (Temporary) redirect we were able to preserve the post data.
