For those who’re enthusiastic about Scorching Reload like me AND you additionally need an “A” grade from SecurityHeaders.com (actually, go do that now) then you’ll be taught in a short time about Content material-Safety-Coverage headers. You’ll want to spend a while studying and you might find yourself with a considerably subtle record of allowed issues, scripts, stylesheets, and so forth.
In DasBlog Core (the cross platform weblog engine that runs this weblog) Mark Downie makes these configurable and makes use of the NWebSpec ASP.NET Middleware library so as to add the wanted headers.
if (SecurityStyleSources != null && SecurityScriptSources != null && DefaultSources != null)
app.UseCsp(choices => choices
.DefaultSources(s => s.Self()
.StyleSources(s => s.Self()
.ScriptSources(s => s.Self()
Every of these variables comes out of a config file. Sure, it might be extra safety in the event that they got here out of a vault or had been even arduous coded.
DasBlog is a pretty big and funky app and we observed instantly upon Mark upgrading it to .NET 6 that we had been unable to make use of Scorching Reload (by way of dotnet watch or from VS 2022). We will complain about it, or we are able to find out about the way it works and why it is not working for us!
Bear in mind: Nothing in your pc is hidden from you.
Okay, this is smart as we all know not solely does HotReload assist C# (code behinds) but additionally Markup by way of Razor Pages and altering CSS! It might undoubtedly want to speak “again dwelling” to the runner which is both “dotnet watch” or VS2022.
If I modify the ASPNETCORE_ENVIRONMENT to “Manufacturing” (both by way of launch.json, launchsettings, or an setting variable like this, I can see that further HotReload helper script is not there:
C:githubwshotreloadtest>dotnet run --environment="Manufacturing"
data: Microsoft.Internet hosting.Lifetime
Now listening on: https://localhost:7216
data: Microsoft.Internet hosting.Lifetime
Now listening on: http://localhost:5216
Bear in mind: You by no means need to use dotnet run in manufacturing! It is an SDK constructing command! You may need to use dotnet exec your.dll, dotnet your.dll, or better of all, in .NET 6 simply name the EXE immediately! .binDebugnet6.0wshotreloadtest.exe in my instance. Why? dotnet run will at all times assume it is in Improvement (you actually inform it to revive, construct, and exec in a single run command) in the event you run it. You may word that operating the precise EXE is at all times WAY sooner as properly! Do not ship your .NET SDK to your webserver and do not recompile the entire thing on startup in manufacturing!
We will see that that aspnnetcore-browser-refresh.js is the shopper aspect of Improvement-time HotReload. our browser console we see :
Refused to hook up with 'wss://localhost:62486/'
as a result of it violates the next Content material Safety Coverage
directive: "default-src 'self'".
Observe that 'connect-src' was not explicitly set,
so 'default-src' is used as a fallback.
That is rather a lot to consider. I began out my ASP.NET Net App’s center ware saying it was OK to speak “again to myself” however nowhere else.
app.UseCsp(choices => choices.DefaultSources(s => s.Self()));
Hm, self appears cheap, why cannot the browser join BACK to the dotnet run’ed Kestrel Net Server? It is all localhost, proper? Nicely, particularly it is http://localhost not ws://localhost, and even wss://localhost (that further s is for safe) so I must explicitly permit ws: or wss: or each, however solely in Improvement.
Perhaps like this (once more, I am utilizing NWebSpec, however these are simply HTTP Headers so you possibly can actually simply add them if you’d like, hardcoded.)
app.UseCsp(choices => choices.DefaultSources(s => s.Self())
.ConnectSources(s => s.CustomSources("wss://localhost:62895")));
However port numbers change, proper? Let’s just do wss:, solely in Improvement. Now, if I am utilizing each CSPs and WebSockets (ws:, wss:) in Manufacturing, I am going to must be intentional about this.
What is the ethical?
For those who begin utilizing CSP Headers to tighten issues up, be aware and conscious of the headers you want for conveniences like Scorching Reload in Improvement versus no matter issues you might want in Manufacturing.
Hope this helps prevent a while!
