Entity Framework Core

latest version preview version downloads

EF Core is a modern object-database mapper for .NET. It supports LINQ queries, change tracking, updates, and schema migrations. EF Core works with SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, SQLite, Azure Cosmos DB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and other databases through a provider plugin API.

Installation

EF Core is available on NuGet. Install the provider package corresponding to your target database. See the list of providers in the docs for additional databases.

dotnet add package Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer
dotnet add package Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Sqlite
dotnet add package Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Cosmos

Use the --version option to specify a preview version to install.

Use the daily builds to verify bug fixes and provide early feedback.

Usage

The following code demonstrates basic usage of EF Core. For a full tutorial configuring the DbContext, defining the model, and creating the database, see getting started in the docs.

using (var db = new BloggingContext())
{
    // Inserting data into the database
    db.Add(new Blog { Url = "http://blogs.msdn.com/adonet" });
    db.SaveChanges();

    // Querying
    var blog = db.Blogs
        .OrderBy(b => b.BlogId)
        .First();

    // Updating
    blog.Url = "https://devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet";
    blog.Posts.Add(
        new Post
        {
            Title = "Hello World",
            Content = "I wrote an app using EF Core!"
        });
    db.SaveChanges();

    // Deleting
    db.Remove(blog);
    db.SaveChanges();
}

Microsoft.Data.Sqlite

latest version preview version downloads

Microsoft.Data.Sqlite is a lightweight ADO.NET provider for SQLite. The EF Core provider for SQLite is built on top of this library. However, it can also be used independently or with other data access libraries.

Installation

The latest stable version is available on NuGet.

dotnet add package Microsoft.Data.Sqlite

Use the --version option to specify a preview version to install.

Use the daily builds to verify bug fixes and provide early feedback.

Usage

This library implements the common ADO.NET abstractions for connections, commands, data readers, and so on. For more information, see Microsoft.Data.Sqlite on Microsoft Docs.

using (var connection = new SqliteConnection("Data Source=Blogs.db"))
{
    connection.Open();

    var command = connection.CreateCommand();
    command.CommandText = "SELECT Url FROM Blogs";

    using (var reader = command.ExecuteReader())
    {
        while (reader.Read())
        {
            var url = reader.GetString(0);
        }
    }
}
