NanoByte Code Generation

Build NuGet API documentation
A thin wrapper around the Roslyn API to simplify generating C# code.

This can be used to implement things like code generators for Swagger/OpenAPI Spec, ORMs, etc. using a type-safe interface rather than simple string templating.

While you can use the Rosyln API directly, its immutable and thread-safe design can make using it somewhat verbose and cumbersome. This library provides a simpler (but also less flexible) wrapper.


Add a reference to the NanoByte.CodeGeneration NuGet package to your project. You can then generate a class like this:

var myClass = new CSharpClass(new CSharpIdentifier("MyNamespace", "MyClass"))
    Description = "My class",
    Properties =
        new CSharpProperty(CSharpIdentifier.String, "MyProperty")
            Description = "My property",
            HasSetter = true

Take a look at the documentation for more features, such as interfaces and attributes.


The source code is in src/, config for building the API documentation is in doc/ and generated build artifacts are placed in artifacts/. The source code does not contain version numbers. Instead the version is determined during CI using GitVersion.

To build run .\build.ps1 or ./ (.NET SDK is automatically downloaded if missing using 0install).
