This package provides support to simplify the process of storing each day's puzzle within a single solution. Each day is automatically registered to a central location, with built-in support for BenchmarkDotNet.


  • Begin by adding this NuGet package to your project AdventOfCodeSupport.
  • Add a folder to your project for the current year i.e. 2022.
  • Add a subfolder to the year called Inputs.
  • Place each day's input into that folder named by day with 2 digits 01.txt.
  • Create a class in the 2022 folder called Day01.cs
using AdventOfCodeSupport;

namespace Foo._2022;

public class Day01 : AdventBase
    public Day01() : base(/*year*/2022, /*day*/1) { }

    protected override void InternalPart1()
        // Part 1 solution here.
        Console.WriteLine($"Input characters: {InputText.Length}");
        Console.WriteLine($"Input lines: {InputLines.Length}");

    protected override void InternalPart2()
        // Part 2 solution here.
  • The properties InputText and InputLines load from the day's input file automatically.
  • Create a new AdventSolutions() at your entry point.
  • Select your day from the AdventSolutions, for example:
using AdventOfCodeSupport;

var solutions = new AdventSolutions();
var today = solutions.GetMostRecentDay();
var day3 = solutions.GetDay(2022, 3);
var day4 = solutions.First(x => x.Year == 2022 && x.Day == 4);
  • Run your solution parts with today.Part1().Part2().
  • Or benchmark them with today.Benchmark(), benchmarking requires running in Release.
