The Kentico Kontent Delivery .NET SDK is a client library that lets you easily retrieve content from Kentico Kontent.

Getting started

Installation via Package Manager Console in Visual Studio:

PM> Install-Package Kentico.Kontent.Delivery 

Installation via .NET CLI:

> dotnet add package Kentico.Kontent.Delivery 


To retrieve content from your Kentico Kontent projects, you'll be using an implementation of the IDeliveryClient interface. This is the main interface of the SDK. Here's how you can instantiate and use the Delivery client either with DI/IoC or without DI/IoC.

Use dependency injection (ideal for ASP.NET Core web apps)


public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)


public class HomeController
	private IDeliveryClient _client;

	public HomeController(IDeliveryClient deliveryClient)
		_client = deliveryClient;

In this case, the SDK reads the configuration from the DeliveryOptions section of the Configuration object. There are many ways of providing the configuration to the DeliveryClient as well as many advanced registration scenarios which you can all find in the Wiki.

To see a complete working example, go to one of our sample apps:

To spin up a fully configured blank site quickly, use the:

Usage without IoC/DI containers (ideal for console apps, unit tests...)

You can also set up a DeliveryOptions manually using the DeliveryClientBuilder.

IDeliveryClient _client = DeliveryClientBuilder
    .WithOptions(builder => builder

Your first request

Use the .NET code generator to generate POCO models:

public class Article 
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public string Summary { get; set; }
	public string Body { get; set; }
	public DateTime? PostDate { get; set; }
	public ContentItemSystemAttributes System { get; set; }

Call the IDeliveryClient to retrieve data from Kentico Kontent:

// Retrieving a single content item
var response = await _client.GetItemAsync<Article>("<article_codename>");
var title = response.Item.Title; // -> "On Roasts"
var lang = response.Item.System.Language; // -> "en-US"

See Working with Strongly Typed Models to learn how to generate models and adjust the logic to your needs.
