Riak .NET Client - a .NET client for Riak

Riak .NET Client is a .NET library which makes it easy to communicate with Riak, Basho's fault-tolerante, distributed KV store.

The easiest way to get hold of it is to install the Nuget package.


Note: Please use the --recursive git option or run git submodule update --init after cloning as a couple submodules are used. Thanks!

Building From Source


Note: git must be in your PATH when doing a Release-configuration build.

Open RiakClient.sln and build. This will generate the required src/CommonAssemblyInfo.cs file.

Command Line

Note: git must be in your PATH when doing a Release-configuration build.

  • Windows
    • Execute make.cmd either via double-click in the file explorer, or by opening a shell in your cloned repository and running .\make.cmd. This will use powershell.exe to run make.ps1 and create a Debug build. Running make.ps1 has much more flexibility. Use the Get-Help .\make.ps1 -Full command in Powershell for more information.
  • Mono
    • Execute make (GNU Make required)
