This project is read-only.


A collection of very reusable code and components in C# 4.0 ranging from ActiveRecord, Csv, Command Line Parsing, Configuration, Validation, Logging, Collections, Authentication, and much more.
This is ideal for C# developer looking for a Utility library, Java developers looking for a C# version of Java Commons.

Target Framework : .NET C# 4.0 for current version. 3.5 for prior versions
NDepend is a Visual Studio tool to manage complex .NET code and achieve high Code Quality
  • Powering ASP.NET MVC CommonLibrary CMS
  • Improved ActiveRecord, Entities, Repository<T>
  • Bug fixes ( for several components including CSV Parser )
  • Documentation & More Examples ( Check the documentation tab above and also the downloadable .chm. )
  • Args.Parse( "-env:QA -log:qa.log -sendEmail 100" )
  • Csv.Load( "stockdata.csv", true)
  • Config.Load( "prod.config,dev.config" )
  • Crypto.Decrypt("asdy720sj=")

Feed back appreciated.

Many of the components in CommonLibraryNET implement a provider model, allowing you to plugin different implementations
for various components using different frameworks.
