About

Provides abstractions of key-value pair based configuration. Interfaces defined in this package are implemented by classes in Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration and other configuration packages.

Key Features

  • Abstractions for string key-value pair configuration sources and sections
  • Path conventions of keys establishing a heirachy of values
  • Support for multiple configuration sources, aggregating and defining precdence for values
  • Support for reload on change

How to Use

The example below shows a small code sample using this library and trying out the ConfigurationKeyName attribute available since .NET 6:

public class MyClass
{
    [ConfigurationKeyName("named_property")]
    public string NamedProperty { get; set; }
}

Given the simple class above, we can create a dictionary to hold the configuration data and use it as the memory source to build a configuration section:

var dic = new Dictionary<string, string>
{
    {"named_property", "value for named property"},
};

var config = new ConfigurationBuilder()
    .AddInMemoryCollection(dic)
    .Build();

var options = config.Get<MyClass>();
Console.WriteLine(options.NamedProperty); // returns "value for named property"

Main Types

The main types provided by this library are:

  • Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.IConfiguration
  • Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.IConfigurationBuilder
  • Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.IConfigurationProvider
  • Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.IConfigurationRoot
  • Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.IConfigurationSection

Package Downloads
Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration

Implementation of key-value pair based configuration for Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration. Includes the memory configuration provider.

Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.Binder

Provides the functionality to bind an object to data in configuration providers for Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration. This package enables you to represent the configuration data as strongly-typed classes defined in the application code. To bind a configuration, use the Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.ConfigurationBinder.Get extension method on the IConfiguration object. To use this package, you also need to install a package for the configuration provider, for example, Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.Json for the JSON provider.

Microsoft.Extensions.Hosting.Abstractions

Hosting and startup abstractions for applications.

Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.FileExtensions

Provides a base class for file-based configuration providers used with Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration and extension methods for configuring them.

Microsoft.Extensions.Options.ConfigurationExtensions

Provides additional configuration specific functionality related to Options.
