It is the amazing year 2022 and in the recent past, the .NET technology has witnessed some revolutionary changes.
.NET developers always look forward to some new upcoming libraries which they can use while developing new web applications. This blog will tell you the 12 most preferred new .NET libraries of the year 2022. So, let’s dive into the list.AutoMapper
AutoMapper is a .NET library for mapping objects to each other using conventions instead of code.
This type of code is somewhat dull and tedious to write.
Autofac is an IoC container designed for Microsoft .NET.
As applications grow in size and complexity, it keeps track of dependencies between classes to ensure that they stay easy to change.
To accomplish this, .NET classes are treated as components.
This library provides a simple way to automate background job processing in your .NET and .NET Core applications.
A Windows Service or separate process is not required.
A fast, simple way to perform recurring, delayed, and fire-and-forget jobs within ASP.NET applications.
Jobs that require CPU and I/O resources, as well as short- and long-running jobs, are supported. No Windows Service / Task Scheduler is required.
These are simple, unambitious .NET implementations.
In-process messaging without dependencies.
Supports request/response, commands, queries, notifications, and events, synchronous and asynchronous, using C# generic variation for intelligent dispatching.
A popular .NET validation library, FluentValidation, allows you to build strongly-typed validation rules.
This is a small validation library for .NET, which uses lambda expressions and a fluent interface to build validation rules.
An easy-to-use fake data generator in C#, F#, and VB.NET.
Bogus is a C# wrapper for faker.js, inspired by FluentValidation’s syntax sugar.
For your testing needs, Bogus will load databases, UIs, and apps with fake data.
Noda Time provides an alternative date and time API for .NET.
You can express operations on data more precisely as well as think more clearly about your data.
Polly is a resilient and transient-fault-handling library for .NET.
Developers can specify policies such as Retry, Circuit Breaker, Timeout, Bulkhead Isolation, and Fallback in a thread-safe manner.
It’s a library and UI for profiling your application.
An intuitive and easy-to-use profiling tool for ASP.NET (and Core) sites.
Through MiniProfiler, you can see where your time is spent and debug issues. It allows you to see which queries are run, as well as custom timings.
An easy-to-use REST and HTTP API client for .NET.
Probably the most popular HTTP client library for .NET is RestSharp.
Aside from automatic serialization and deserialization, response type detection, and authentication, it offers other useful features as well.
SignalR offers real-time web integration for .NET core apps through its SignalR .NET core library.
Using it, developers can push/add data from the server into their applications.
Automatic connection management.
Simultaneous message-sending to all clients.
Scalable to handle increasing traffic.
A group of clients can be notified at once with a message.
A library called Swashbuckle generates elegant API documentation, as well as a Swagger UI for exploring and testing API operations.
Setting this up in your project will only take you a few minutes.
This allows you to create living documentation to complement your APIs that are always in sync with the latest code.
The most attractive part is that it requires minimal maintenance and coding, so you can focus on building an awesome API.
In this article, we have listed some of the most preferred libraries in the year 2022. It would be interesting to know if your library has been on the list or not. However, it would be even more interesting to learn how these latest libraries will help existing industries in the near future.
