I just got a notification that my pull request for adding RavenDB support to MiniProfiler went through! It's always really cool to see your contributions get pulled in. The MiniProfiler guys were really easy-going, @yellis was even kind enough to take on the testing. That kind of acceptance for pull requests is great to see because it makes me feel good about contributing and is a bit less intimidating.
The "official" MiniProfiler RavenDB plugin does several things:
I have only just begun my exploration of RavenDB but one of the downsides from moving from EF was the excellent MiniProfiler integration. I was really surprised to find adding the same level of support to Raven was pretty straightforward in the latest iteration of MiniProfiler.
There are two packages I found that added profiling to Raven, the "official" Raven profiler and another MiniProfiler plugin, but both of those are lacking. The official one didn't seem to handle AJAX requests and the other only seemed to add profiling steps; it didn't provide any details about the request. I wanted full integration with MiniProfiler on the same level as EF and I didn't want to enable two profilers at once. I was already using MiniProfiler to profile my MVC app, I didn't want to enable Raven Profiler and MiniProfiler at the same time.
There is a RavenDb.Contrib project that added MiniProfiler integration on the level I wanted, but unfortunately it was not integrated tightly into the MiniProfiler codebase (it was using reflection and other hacks) and it also was not built against the latest version of the codebase that simplified the steps to create a new custom timing. Still, credit is due, because some of the formatting logic and general direction of my pull request was taken from that contrib project.
I do not know what the release schedule is like for the next version of MiniProfiler, but I have my RavenDB-based branch compiled and am using it for my site currently. You can bring down my fork and compile it yourself too, if you're really interested in using it right now.
