Install-Package ForEvolve.AspNetCore -Version 2.0.0-CI-859


ForEvolve Framework (or toolbox)

This project started as my personal toolbox, where I added utility classes that I was tired of copying from project to project, that I needed to facilitate my life or for any other reason toward reusability.

Then I cleaned this up a little to make it decent for a release version where other people would be able to depend on it; and here we are: v1.0.0. Each project is loadable on its own, or you can load bundles using meta-packages.

Examples of features are Azure table repository, Azure blob repositories (JSON object and files), automatic conversion of Exception to JSON, markdown to HTML, HTML to pdf, generic operation results, test utilities, and more.

Feel free to use the NuGet packages, fork it, contribute to it and post issues. These are ever-evolving projects!
