codeShow Documentation

demo pages

codeShow is simply a collection of pages that each show off how to do one simple thing in Windows 8.

codeShow principles

  • don't show more than one or two things at a time
  • don't include a lot of overhead code for things like user interaction
  • if you want to show multiple ways to do the same thing then include both versions in the code and comment one out
  • don't use a lot of library sourced helper functions (except for ocho.js)... keep it vanilla


I may pull ocho.js out on its own at some point, but for now it is a part of this codeShow project. ocho.js is a library of helpful JavaScript to increase developer joy when creating Windows 8 apps.
ocho.js is divided into namespaces by category of functionality.
(list namespaces and describe functionality)

All package dependencies that you need for the app are in the bin folder. When you download all of the source files, at the root you should see the bin folder and the installers for the SDKs are in there. If you don't want to install some (some aren't even used in demos yet) then you can remove their reference from the project instead of installing them.

can u pls at least provide a link where to get those references? i.e. is there a nuget package for that? if yes what is the name?

I'm watching the MVA videos on HTML5/CSS/JS and they show a demo page. I can't seem to find the demo's mentioned in the MVA videos.

Any idea where they are?
