ASP.NET Application Startup Code Made Easy


Many third party libraries require more than a simple assembly reference to be useful. They sometimes need the application to run a bit of configuration code when the application starts up. In the past, this meant you would need to copy and paste a bit of startup code in the Application_Start method of Global.asax. WebActivator, is a library (delivered as a NuGet package) that solves that issue when combined with NuGet’s ability to include source code files in packages along with referenced assemblies. It makes it easy for a NuGet package to include a bit of application start-up code.
