How to implement new task

Check CSharpTask.ExampleApp/Tasks/Dummy task example

  1. Implement 3 classes inside {RootNamespace}.{TaskName} namespace:
    • {TaskName}Task - with task implementation
    • {TaskName}Options - for task configuration
    • {TaskName}Startup - to register the task with its dependencies
  2. Provide TaskDescriptionAttribute with values for {TaskName}Task class

How to run task

Check CSharpTask.ExampleApp/Program.cs for the example setup.

  1. Register the task in your application using the TaskExtensions.UseStartup with task name provided from application arguments
  2. Validate task name from arguments with TaskExtension.ValidateRequestedTask method.
  3. Run application with task name as an argument to execute task
  4. Run application without a ny arguments to display all implemented tasks

Example output from the CSharpTask.ExampleApp

dotnet run --project CSharpTask.ExampleApp/CSharpTask.ExampleApp.csproj

Dummy: this is an example of task description
dotnet run --project CSharpTask.ExampleApp/CSharpTask.ExampleApp.csproj -- Dummy

DummyTask.ExecuteAsync Test Setting

Entity Framework Note!

EF uses own head-of-control while run command line tools (eg. ef migrate), it injects own entry point changing result of Assembly.GetEntryAssembly() method as side effect. It will lead to InvalidOperationException with message: Cannot find <task name> in <EF assembly>.

Use IHostBuilder UseStartup(this IHostBuilder hostBuilder, string taskName, Assembly? asm) with typeof(Program).Assembly provided into Assembly? asm argument to mitigate this error.

  if (!string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(taskName))
    hostBuilder.UseStartup(taskName, typeof(Program).Assembly);
