Usage examples:

Feature packages:

  • Wheel.Commands : Command system: definition of commands, parsing of command-line arguments, execution of commands. Commands are added to the application using a Startup class (similarly to ASP.NET Core). Each command can be defined either explicitly (using ICommandBuilder interface), or with a class containing a ConfigureCommand method, or with a class using Command and CommandOption attributes.

  • Wheel.Data : Abstraction layer for access to databases, execution of stored procedures, and configuration of EntityFrameworkCore DbContext classes. Packages Wheel.Data.PostgreSql, Wheel.Data.SqlServer and Wheel.Data.Oracle are implementations of Wheel.Data on particular database systems.

  • Wheel.Web : Utilities for ASP.NET Core web applications.

  • Wheel.Testing : Utilities for unit testing using xunit framework.

Specific tools:

  • Wheel.Ftp : A FTP client library compatible with .NET core >= 2.0 and .NET classic framework >= 2.0. It can resume previously interrupted uploads (tested with Microsoft FTP Service). Adapted from edtFTPnet, Free edition (licensed under the GNU LGPL).

Base packages:

  • Wheel.Backports : Adaptation of parts of Microsoft.Extensions for the obsolete .NET framework 2.0. The original namespaces and API are preserved as much as possible.

  • Wheel : Common features used in most scenarios.
