I finally got round to something today that has been waiting for a very long time: I published my Functional C# library FCSlib on github and NuGet. I first started working on parts of this back in 2008 and put the library together when I wrote my book Functional Programming in C#.
There are still things I’d like to do for the github project – most importantly, I know I have a set of tests somewhere, but because I was using the library for various purposes over years and I didn’t have source control organized well enough, that stuff is spread out a bit. I need to find everything and probably create a bunch of additional tests for some proper coverage, and hopefully I’ll be able to do that in the future. I also hope to add some documentation, but meanwhile read the book or dig around yourself 😃
Meanwhile, the project is now on github here: https://github.com/oliversturm/FCSlib
The NuGet package is here: https://www.nuget.org/packages/FCSlib
I know that some developers still don’t use NuGet much even today, but it’s really easy: just bring up the NuGet packages dialog in Visual Studio (or Xamarin of course!) by right-clicking your project or the Packages node of it, search for
FCSlib and install the package. Enjoy!
Sorry, this blog does not support comments. Why not?
I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
