Aspect Generator

The Aspect Generator can help you easily create your own aspects.

[!WARNING] Interceptors are an experimental compiler feature planned to ship in .NET 8 (with support for C# only). The feature may be subject to breaking changes or removal in a future release.

[!WARNING] The community still has doubts about the usefulness of this feature. On the one hand, it looks like not kosher fake AOP. On the other hand, it works just fine. This project can help you to try it and share your own opinion.

OpenTelemetry Aspect example

Create OpenTelemetryFactory and Metrics aspect:

using System;
using System.Diagnostics;

using OpenTelemetry;
using OpenTelemetry.Resources;
using OpenTelemetry.Trace;

namespace AspectGenerator
{
    /// <summary>
    /// Initializes OpenTelemetry.
    /// </summary>
    static class OpenTelemetryFactory
    {
        public static TracerProvider? Create()
        {
            return Sdk.CreateTracerProviderBuilder()
                .SetResourceBuilder(ResourceBuilder.CreateDefault().AddService("MySample"))
                .AddSource("Sample.Aspect")
                .AddConsoleExporter()
                .Build();
        }
    }

    /// <summary>
    /// Metrics aspect.
    /// </summary>
    [Aspect(
        // Specify the name of the method used in the 'using' statement
        // that returns an IDisposable object.
        OnUsing = nameof(OnUsing)
        )]
    [AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Method, Inherited = false, AllowMultiple = false)]
    sealed class MetricsAttribute : Attribute
    {
        static readonly ActivitySource _activitySource = new("Sample.Aspect");

        public static Activity? OnUsing(InterceptInfo info)
        {
            return _activitySource.StartActivity(info.MemberInfo.Name);
        }
    }
}

Use it:

using System;
using System.Threading;

using Aspects;

namespace OpenTelemetryAspect
{
    static class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            using var _ = OpenTelemetryFactory.Create();

            Method1();
            Method2();
            Method1();
        }

        [Metrics]
        public static void Method1()
        {
            Thread.Sleep(100);
        }

        [Metrics]
        public static void Method2()
        {
            Thread.Sleep(200);
        }
    }
}

More advanced version of the Metrics aspect can also set activity status and support await using.
