ua_parser C# Library

This is the CSharp implementation of ua-parser. You can find the latest binaries on NuGet here.

Build status

The implementation uses the shared regex patterns and overrides from regexes.yaml (found in uap-core). The assembly embeds the latest regex patterns (enabled through a git submodule) which are loaded into the default parser. You can create a parser with more updated regex patterns by using the static methods on Parser to pass in specific patterns in yaml format.

Build and Run Tests:

Make sure you pull down the submodules that includes the yaml files (otherwise you won't be able to compile):

git submodule update --init --recursive

You can then build and run the tests by invoking the build.bat script
