Nice article mate. Anyway, in the world of micro components and fast-faced development, are you really spending time too much for such kind of bootstrapping? I guess, it is a bit too much for a single developer to always do this without the help of this kind of tutorial.

Why not install the library and use it right away (in seconds) and spend most of the time into a much more productive activity.

We loved micro ORMs due to its performance, flexibility and simplicity. I am also an author of ORM named RepoDb, an ORM that consist the missing pieces of Dapper (as the benefits), plus being the fastest right now. In either way, micro-ORM are both worth trying.

Hey Mike,

Thanks for your comment. It isn't that much work, actually. You do it one or two times and you already got the hang of it and are able to enjoy the advantages of Entity Framework (Core).

If you want to build an MVP real quick, of course you can also use a solution like yours or use online web development platforms like Firebase.

Many corporations stick to .NET Core, though, and like to have complete control of the code.

So, what you want to use in the end, is totally up to you.

Have a great day!

Take care,
