Grace is a feature-rich dependency injection container designed with ease of use and performance in mind.
using Grace.DependencyInjection; var container = new DependencyInjectionContainer(); container.Configure(c => c.Export<BasicService>().As<IBasicService>()); var basicService = container.Locate<IBasicService>();
It's as easy as create, configure, and locate.
NuGet package supports .Net 4.5 and .Net Standard 1.0.

Features in Grace
- Fluent interface or Attributes for configuration allowing for maximum flexibility
- Supports child containers and light weight lifetime scopes
- Contextual binding support (similar to NInject)
- IDisposable objects created by the container will be tracked and disposed by the container unless configured otherwise.
- Performance characteristics that make it one of the fastest containers available. (Benchmarks)
- Supports special types
- IEnumerable<T> - supports resolving collections as IEnumerable<T> as well as most other types of collections List<T>, ReadOnlyCollection<T>, T and any collection that implements ICollection<T>
- Func<T> - supports resolving Func<T> automatically
- Lazy<T> - when resolved a Lazy<T> will be created that resolves T from the scope it was created in
- Owned<T> - object resolved within a Owned<T> will have their disposal lifecycle tied to the Owned<T> (similar to Autofac)
- Meta<T> - objects resolved within a Meta<T> are resolved along with their metadata
- Custom Delegates - any delegate that returns a type can be automatically resolved.
- Custom interface factories with Grace.Factory
- Many LifeStyles supported including Singleton, SingletonPerScope, SingletonPerRequest (MVC4, MVC5 & WCF packages), SingletonPerObjectGraph, SingletonPerAncestor<T>, and WeakSingleton. If none of the provided life styles meet your need you can always implement your own ICompiledLifeStyle class.
- Built in support for the decorator pattern
- Support for custom wrappers (Func<T> and Meta<T> are examples of built-in wrappers)
- ASP.Net Core supports
- Source Link support enabled
- Release Notes
