Build Status


A .NET Core lightweight inter-process communication framework allowing invoking a service via named pipeline (in a similar way as WCF, which is currently unavailable for .NET Core).

Support using primitive or complexe types in service contract.

Support multi-threading on server side with configurable number of threads.

ASP.NET Core Dependency Injection framework friendly.


  1. Create an interface as service contract and package it in an assembly to be shared between server and client.
  2. Implement the service and host it in an console or web applciation
  3. Invoke the service with framework provided proxy client


  • Service contract
    public interface IComputingService
        float AddFloat(float x, float y);
  • Service implementation
    class ComputingService : IComputingService
        public float AddFloat(float x, float y)
            return x + y;
  • Invoke the service from client process
    var proxy = new IpcServiceClient<IComputingService>("pipeName");
    float result = await proxy.InvokeAsync(x => x.AddFloat(1.23f, 4.56f));
  • Host the service (Console application)
   class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // configure DI
            IServiceCollection services = ConfigureServices(new ServiceCollection());

            // run IPC service host
                .Buid("pipeName", services.BuildServiceProvider())

        private static IServiceCollection ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
            return services
                .AddIpc(options =>
                    options.ThreadCount = 4;
                .AddService<IComputingService, ComputingService>();
  • Host the service (Web application)
    public class Program
        public static void Main(string[] args)
            IWebHost webHost = BuildWebHost(args);

            // run the IPC service host in a separated thread because it's blocking


        private static void StartIpcService(object state)
            var serviceProvider = state as IServiceProvider;
                .Buid("pipeName", serviceProvider as IServiceProvider)

        public static IWebHost BuildWebHost(string[] args) =>
    public class Startup
        public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
                .AddIpc(options =>
                    options.ThreadCount = 4;
                .AddService<IComputingService, ComputingService>()

        public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app, IHostingEnvironment env)
            app.Run(async (context) =>
                await context.Response.WriteAsync("Hello World!");

I'll publish NuGet packages later.
