A simple event sourcing "framework" packaged on at and based entirely on my learnings from Greg Young's DDD, CQRS and Event Sourcing course. The implementation may differ from Greg's in places, but the goal is generally the same. Calling it a "framework" is overstating things somewhat given it's such …

What is it?

A simple event sourcing "framework" based on Greg Young's work in DDD, CQRS and Event Sourcing. In truth, as you'll see, it's barely a "framework" as much of a bunch of reusable code. :)

Why'd you call it "Regalo"?

Well it's an event sourcing framework, and events tell a story. You might "regale" someone with a story, and I just swopped the trailing "e" for an "o" to make it sound cool. Hence "Regalo". I pronounce it "regarlo", in case you're wondering.

How do I use it?

Regalo comes in two significant parts - there's Regalo.Core itself. This provides a bunch of interfaces and a Greg Young-inspired AggregateRoot class to derive your... aggregate roots from. You also get an event sourcing repository implementation. What's missing from that picture is the actual persistence. That's where Regalo.RavenDB (and at some point Regalo.SqlServer) come in. They provide an event store implementation.

Getting started is a case of installing one of the event store implementation packages via e.g. install-package regalo.ravendb, then configuring a few dependencies (all Regalo libraries rely on the Dependency Inversion principle).

I'll try to build a "getting started" page on the wiki asap. In the meantime, check out This is and will continue to be the sample implementation to demonstrate Regalo usage.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
