Razor allow custom html builders to use @ syntax and not encode the output
View gist:8718256
// Out of the box, WebViewPage essentially does this to write content:
// And HttpUtility.HtmlEncode will encode anything not marked with the IHtmlString interface
// If we have a custom html builder we have to use something like this:
// This is a lot of extra typing

Hack to set a custom base view with Nancy and Razor
View hackNancyRazorPageBaseType
// At this time Nancy's Razor view engine doesn't let you set a default base class like ASP.NET web pages does with pageBaseType, if you want to hack one in here is how:
// First create your custom type, this one writes out hack for everything, so obviously remove that unless you want that :)

Null safety, proving something is null in kotlin and then not needing to deal with it thereafter
View gist:30a5d7f5a07146d6bad3
// In Kotlin, I can force the source of a reference to ensure it's not null, that way every thing thereafter doesn't have to deal with null references
// This is what I refer to as fixing things up stream, of course when appropriate.
// Typically sources of references don't both to check for null and even if they do, they can't make explicit that they've taken care of that check. So every consumer of that reference theoretically may need to check.
// In this example, there's no reason the userId, password and serverUrl should ever be null. Unfortunately because of interop with java, that's not a contractual guarantee.
// So at the point that I produce these values for my own use, I perfom the check in one place, stop everything if my assumption is not valid, and otherwise be on my merry way never to worry about null references after this point
