Minimal Dependency Injection

This is a minimal implmentation of the Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection package, including the ActivatorUtilities class.

Allows for Singleton and Transient services to be registered with an IOC container. Scoped services have not been implemented.

This is designed as a very lightweight, and minimalistic, but this may come at a cost. This package doesn't come with a lot of the safety measures, and fallbacks that the full package contains. It was written from the ground up, other than the ActivatorUtilities class. Therefore, it might not play well with thrid-party ICO wrappers like AutoFac, or CastleWindsor. It should not be seen as a replacement for Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection.

The original purpose of this package was to act as an IOC container for game mods, where a full Enterprise level package simply comes with too much bloat. This is ideal for those kinds of scenarios, when you just need a quick and simple IOC container, without all the bloat.


Inspired by Nick Chapsas' video tutorial on bespoke dependency injection solutions.
