  • .net framework 4.6.1
  • .net standard 2.0
  • .net 5.0

Build Status


  • master Build status
  • develop Build status


ChangeLog can be found here

How to Build (locally)

  • clone the repository with:
git clone --recursive


git clone
git submodule update

To build the project locally on a Windows Machine:

  • Install Chocolatey.
  • Open a Powershell console in Administrative mode and run the build script build.ps1 in the root of the repository.

Run Tests in Visual Studio

To run tests in visual studio using NUnit as a Test Runner you need to explicitly exclude "Explicit Tests" from running adding the following filter in the test explorer section:


Configure / Customize Commit Serialization

You can configure the serialization process using the standard methods offered by the MongoDB C# driver.

You'll need to specify the class mapping or implement an IBsonSerializationProvider for the MongoCommit class and registerm them before you start using any database operation.

For detailed information on how to configure the serialization in MongoDB head to the official Serialization documentation


public static void MapMongoCommit()
  if (!BsonClassMap.IsClassMapRegistered(typeof(MongoCommit)))
    BsonClassMap.RegisterClassMap<MongoCommit>(cm =>
      // change how the Headers collection is serialized
      cm.MapMember(c => c.Headers)
          new ImpliedImplementationInterfaceSerializer<IDictionary<string, object>, Dictionary<string, object>>()
              new DictionaryInterfaceImplementerSerializer<Dictionary<string, object>>(global::MongoDB.Bson.Serialization.Options.DictionaryRepresentation.Document)
      // your custom mapping goes here


class MongoCommitProvider : IBsonSerializationProvider
    public IBsonSerializer GetSerializer(Type type)
        if (type == typeof(MongoCommit))
            return new MongoCommitSerializer();
        return null;

class MongoCommitSerializer : SerializerBase<MongoCommit>
    public override MongoCommit Deserialize(BsonDeserializationContext context, BsonDeserializationArgs args)
        // read the BsonDocument manually and return an instance of the MongoCommit class

    public override void Serialize(BsonSerializationContext context, BsonSerializationArgs args, int value)
        // write the BsonDocument manually serializing each property of the MongoCommit class

you can then register the serialization provider using: BsonSerializer.RegisterSerializationProvider

How to contribute


This repository uses GitFlow to develop, if you are not familiar with GitFlow you can look at the following link.

Installing and configuring Git Flow

Probably the most straightforward way to install GitFlow on your machine is installing Git Command Line, then install the Visual Studio Plugin for Git-Flow. This plugin is accessible from the Team Explorer menu and allows you to install GitFlow extension directly from Visual Studio with a simple click. The installer installs standard GitFlow extension both for command line and for Visual Studio Plugin.

Once installed you can use GitFlow right from Visual Studio or from Command line, which one you prefer.

Build machine and GitVersion

Build machine uses GitVersion to manage automatic versioning of assemblies and Nuget Packages. You need to be aware that there are a rule that does not allow you to directly commit on master, or the build will fail.

A commit on master can be done only following the Git-Flow model, as a result of a new release coming from develop, or with an hotfix.

Quick Info for NEventstore projects

Just clone the repository and from command line checkout develop branch with

git checkout develop

Then from command line run GitFlow initialization scripts

git flow init

You can leave all values as default. Now your repository is GitFlow enabled.

Note on Nuget version on Nuspec

While we are on develop branch, (suppose we just bumped major number so the driver version number is 6.0.0-unstablexxxx), we need to declare that this persistence driver depends from a version greater than the latest published. If the latest version of NEventStore 5.x.x wave iw 5.4.0 we need to declare this package dependency as

(5.4, 7)

This means, that we need a NEventStore greater than the latest published, but lesser than the next main version. This allows version 6.0.0-unstable of NEventStore to satisfy the dependency. We remember that prerelease package are considered minor than the stable package. Es.

5.4.0 5.4.1 6.0.0-unstable00001 6.0.0
