CRUDer Framework

Cruder is the usefull, generic and authorization supported Asp.Net MVC framework which is allows you to create CRUD based applications quickly.

Dependent Another Frameworks

  • Asp.Net MVC < 6 (Now supports any .Net Application)
  • Castle Windsor (I'm not planning to change 😄)
  • Entity Framework (I'm planning to add more ORM supports, Really!)

I promise you will learn and enjoy to use Cruder Framework in following 3 minutes. Just keep going to read.

I prepared 2 different examples to use Cruder Framework.

Purpose of the first example is how you implement and use Cruder quickly. I believe, that shows Cruder features to you directly. I named it The Quick Implementation.

The second example purpose is how I implement and how Cruder could be used in complex, N-Tier architecture soultions. I named it The Perfect Implementation (Arguable to how perfect is 😄)

I prepared both of 2 examples for newly created solutions.

##The Quick Implementation

Create a class library and name it "Demo.Data".This layer should be include our data-access classes. Like repositories and entities. ###Demo.Data Layer

  • Install Entity Framework latest version from NuGet.
  • Install Cruder.Core and Cruder.Data from NuGet (or add reference directly from source for debugging)
  • Create CategoryEntity, CategoryRepository and DatabaseContext classes.

enter image description here ####Category Entity using Cruder.Core.Contract;

namespace Demo.Data.Entities
    public class CategoryEntity : IEntity<int>
        public int Id { get; set; }

        public string Name { get; set; }

CategoryEntity is the our first and single Entity class (in this example) which is mapping Categories table. In Cruder Framework we want to that every entity class must be implemented from IEntity or IEntity<> classes. You can find detailed description about IEntity implementation at The Perfect Implementation example. ####Category Repository using Demo.Data.Entities;

namespace Demo.Data.Repositories
    public class CategoryRepository : Cruder.Data.EntityRepository<CategoryEntity,int>

Here is the hearth of the Cruder Framework EntityRepository<> ! It is responsible every data accessing actions. It resolves Context classes, finds DbSet at realtime and manages creating, reading, updating and removing actions.

You can look over the virtual methods in EntityRepostory<> in this way you can interrupt and customize CRUD actions. ####Database Context (EF Context)

using Demo.Data.Entities;
using System.Data.Entity;

namespace Demo.Data.Model
    public class DatabaseContext : DbContext
        public DbSet<CategoryEntity> Categories { get; set; }

        public DatabaseContext() : base("Cruder.Demo")

        protected override void OnModelCreating(DbModelBuilder modelBuilder)
                .HasKey(x => x.Id)


This is traditional Entity Framework context class implementation. This implementation does not depend any Cruder object, you can design how you want.

###Demo.UI Layer Create a empty Asp.Net MVC project and;

  • Add Demo.Data as reference
  • Install Cruder.Core and Cruder.Web from NuGet.

####Configure Web.Config ; enter image description here

####Configure Views/Web.config ; enter image description here

####Configure Global.asax ; enter image description here

####Add Category Controller and Views; enter image description here


using Demo.Data.Entities;

namespace Demo.UI.Controllers
    public class CategoryController : Cruder.Web.Mvc.Controllers.CruderWebController<CategoryEntity>


@model Cruder.Web.ViewModel.ListViewModel<Demo.Data.Entities.CategoryEntity>

<table width="600px">
        @foreach (var item in Model.Data)
                    <a href="@Url.Action("AddEdit", new { id = item.Id })">Edit</a>
                    <a href="@Url.Action("Delete", new { id = item.Id })">Delete</a>


@model Cruder.Web.ViewModel.DetailViewModel<Demo.Data.Entities.CategoryEntity>

@if (CruderHtml.PageMessage != null)
    <div>@CruderHtml.PageMessage.Type.ToString() : <br />@Html.Raw(CruderHtml.PageMessage.Content)</div>


<form method="post" action="@Request.Url">
    @Html.TextBoxFor(x => x.Data.Name)

    <br />
    <input type="submit" value="Save"/>

##The Perfect Implementation Will be added as soon as.
