What is SharpRepository?

SharpRepository is a generic repository written in C# which includes support for various relational, document and object databases including Entity Framework, RavenDB, MongoDb and Db4o. SharpRepository includes Xml and InMemory repository implementations as well. SharpRepository offers built-in caching options for AppFabric, Memcached and standard System.Runtime.Caching. SharpRepository also supports Specifications, FetchStrategies, Batches and Traits.

How do I get started?

Check out the getting started guide. When you're done there, review the SharpRepository.Samples, SharpRepository.Samples.MvcCore, SharpRepository.Samples.MVC5, SharpRepository.Tests.Integration and SharpRepository.Tests project for additional sample usage and implementation details.

Compatibility Issues

  • All packages support .NET Framework 4.6 and .NET Standard 2.0. A good part of them supports .NET Standard 1.3
  • CouchDB Repository is not compatible with CouchDB 2.0.0 (removed temporary views support)

Running tests

Integration tests uses all implementations. In order to avoid failing tests and long timeouts you have to install:

  • CouchDB 1.x (not 2.x)
  • SQL Server Compact
  • MongoDB

We notice timeouts and long test discovery in VS2017 and timeouts in "dotnet test". The best way is use nunit3 console you can get console here and add installation folder in your path After that from your project folder you can run all tests with:

nunit3-console.exe ".\SharpRepository.Samples\bin\Debug\net461\SharpRepository.Samples.dll" ".\SharpRepository.Tests\bin\Debug\net461\SharpRepository.Tests.dll" ".\SharpRepository.Tests.Integration\bin\Debug\net461\SharpRepository.Tests.Integration.dll"
