#nuget #dotnet

Written by Anders Marzi Tornblad

Nuget logotypeConphig (Nuget package), latest version: 2.1.1

Targeting .net 6.0

The latest version of Conphig targets .net 6.0, and is compiled using version 10 of C#. The DefaultAttribute attribute is marked as obsolete, and will be removed in a future version.

How to use it

After installing the Conphig package, create a simple POCO class, and place your configuration items as properties inside. For each property, decorate it with JsonPropertyName, CommandLine, and EnvironmentVariable attributes to control how that property is loaded from JSON files, command line arguments and environment variables. Like this:

using System.Text.Json.Serialization;
using ATornblad.Conphig;

namespace MyApp
    public class Setting
        [CommandLine("-t", "--title")]
        public string Title { get; set; } = "Default title";
        [CommandLine("-v", "--verbose")]
        public bool Verbose { get; set; } = false;
        public int? MinAge { get; set; }
        public string ApiToken { get; set; }
        [CommandLine("-c", "--category")]
        public string[] Categories { get; set; }

Then, to load the configuration settings, just add a call to Config.Load<T> to your application's startup code:

using ATornblad.Conphig;

namespace MyApp
    public class Program
        public void Main(string[] args)
            var config = Config.Load<Setting>();
            Console.WriteLine($"Title: {config.Title}");
            Console.WriteLine($"Verbose Output: {config.Verbose}");
            Console.WriteLine($"Minimum Age: {config.MinAge}");
            Console.WriteLine($"Api Token: {config.ApiToken }");

I hope you will find this new version of Conphig useful.

The latest version of the code is always available in the GitHub repository.
