.NET Object Model Diagram Generator
A cross-platform Roslyn-based tool that generates an object model diagram of a set of C# source files
dotnet GENERATOR.dll /source=[source folder] /compareSource=[oldSourceFolder] /preprocessors=[defines] /format=[html|image] /ShowPrivate /ShowInternal Required parameters: source Specifies the folder of source files to include for the object model. Separate with ; for multiple folders Optional parameters: compareSource Specifies a folder to compare source and generate a diff model This can be useful for finding API changes or compare branches format Format to generate: 'image' generates an image for each object. 'html' a single html output (html is default) preprocessors Define a set of preprocessors values. Use ; to separate multiple exclude Defines one or more strings that can't be part of the path Ie '*/Samples/*;*/UnitTests/*' (use forward slash for folder separators) regexfilter Defines a regular expression for filtering on full file names in the source ShowPrivate Show private members (default is false) ShowInternal Show internal members (default is false)
As an alternative you can also reference a NuGet package to your class library, and an Object Model Diagram HTML file will be auto-generated when you build your project:
An example of a generated output for all of .NET Core can be found here.
It can also be used to compare two folders (for instance two separate branches) and only show changes to the API. Here's an example of .NET CoreFX v2.0 vs Master.
Generate OMD for .NET Core FX source code, and ignore ref and test folders:
dotnet Generator.dll /source=c:\github\dotnet\corefx\src /exclude="*/ref/*;*/tests/*;*/perftests/*"
Compare .NET CoreFX Master with v2.0.0 repo branches directly from their Github zipped downloads:
dotnet Generator.dll /source=https://github.com/dotnet/corefx/archive/master.zip /compareSource=https://github.com/dotnet/corefx/archive/release/2.0.0.zip /exclude="*/ref/*;*/tests/*;*/perftests/*"
