Other Useful Web Helpers

I used the Database helper library that ships with WebMatrix in my simple movie listing sample above. 

WebMatrix also ships with other useful web helpers that you can take advantage of.  We’ll support these helpers not just within ASP.NET Web Pages – but also within ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Web Forms applications.  For example, to embed a live twitter search panel within your application you can write code like below to search tweets:

This will then display a live twitter feed of tweets that mention “scottgu”:


Other useful built-in helpers include ones to integrate with Facebook and Google Analytics, Create and Integrate Captchas and Gravitars, perform server-side dynamic charts (using the new Chart capabilities built-into ASP.NET 4), and more.

All of these helpers will be available for use not only within ASP.NET Web Pages, but also in ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC applications.
