Library Powered By

This library is powered by Entity Framework Extensions

Entity Framework Extensions


This is a .NET Core / Standard port of the Microsoft assembly for the .Net 4.0 Dynamic language functionality.


With this library it's possible to write Dynamic LINQ queries (string based) on an IQueryable:

var query = db.Customers
    .Where("City == @0 and Orders.Count >= @1", "London", 10)
    .Select("new(CompanyName as Name, Phone)");

Interpolated strings are supported on .NET 4.6(and above), .NET Core 2.1(and above), .NET Standard 1.3(and above) and UAP 10.0(and above). For example:

string cityName = "London";
int c = 10;
db.Customers.WhereInterpolated($"City == {cityName} and Orders.Count >= {c}");

Fork details

This fork takes the basic library to a new level. Contains XML Documentation and examples on how to use it. Also adds unit testing to help ensure that it works properly.

Some background: I forked from and added some more functionality there.
My fork is still visible on github [], however I decided to start a new project + nuget to avoid confusion and create the project according to the new VS2017 + .NET Core rules / standards.

However, currently there are multiple nuget packages and projects available:

Project NuGet Author Comment
kahanu/System.Linq.Dynamic System.Linq.Dynamic @kahanu -
kavun/System.Linq.Dynamic.3.5 System.Linq.Dynamic.3.5/ @kavun only 3.5 and VB.NET
NArnott/System.Linq.Dynamic System.Linq.Dynamic.Library @NArnott removed from github + nuget ?

Why should I contribute to this free & open-source library?

We all love free and open-source libraries! But there is a catch... nothing is free in this world.

We NEED your help. Last year alone, we spent over 3000 hours maintaining all our open source libraries.

Contributions allow us to spend more of our time on: Bug Fix, Development, Documentation, and Support.

How much should I contribute?

Any amount is much appreciated. All our free libraries together have more than 100 million downloads.

If everyone could contribute a tiny amount, it would help us make the .NET community a better place to code!

Another great free way to contribute is spreading the word about the library.

A HUGE THANKS for your help!
