Manipulating the IL of an assembly as part of a build requires a significant amount of plumbing code. This plumbing code involves knowledge of both the MSBuild and Visual Studio APIs. Fody attempts to eliminate that plumbing code through an extensible add-in model.
This is the codebase of core Fody engine. For more information on the larger Fody project see https://github.com/Fody/Home.
Fody requires significant effort to maintain. As such it relies on financial support to ensure its long term viability.
See Licensing/Patron FAQ for more information.
