DotNetStarter - Package Authors

Package authors can depend on either the configuration and startup abstractions or the registration attribute abstractions to create their components. The components can then be designed with constructor dependency injection in mind. These classes can then be registered by using the RegistrationAttribute or in a startup module implementing ILocatorConfigure. Packages may also perform tasks during startup and shutdown using the IStartupModule interface.

Best Practices

For any packages, adding the below assembly attribute in an AssemblyInfo.cs is a best practice, as application owners can easily find modules within the package during the scanning process. The attribute also simplifies the startup builder configuration.

[assembly: DotNetStarter.Abstractions.DiscoverableAssembly]
