AgileCoding.Extensions.File is a .NET 6.0 library that provides useful extensions for file related operations. This includes validating file existence, checking if a file is in use, creating a file name with a specific extension, and more.


This library is available as a NuGet package. You can install it using the NuGet package manager console:

bashCopy code

Install-Package AgileCoding.Extensions.File -Version 2.0.5


The library provides various functionalities such as:

  1. Check File Existence: The FileExist extension method checks if a given file path points to an existing file.
  2. Create File and Delete If Exist: The CreateFileAndDelteIfExist extension method creates a new file at the given path and deletes any existing file.
  3. Create Filename With Extension: The CreateFileNameWithExtention extension method creates a filename with the given extension.
  4. Get File Hash: The GetFileHash extension method calculates and returns the SHA1 hash of a file.
  5. Read All Lines: The AllLines extension method reads all the lines of a file.
  6. File Is In Use: The FileIsInUse extension method checks if a file is being used by another process.
  7. Shift Directory Back: The ShiftDirectotyBack extension method shifts the directory back a specified number of times.


Here's an example of how to use these features:

using AgileCoding.Extentions.Files;
using System.IO;

string filePath = "your/file/path.txt";

// Check if file exists
bool exists = filePath.FileExist();

// Throw exception if file doesn't exist
filePath.ThrowIfFileDoesntExist<FileNotFoundException>("File does not exist");

// Create filename with extension
string filename = "myFile";
string newFilename = filename.CreateFileNameWithExtention("txt");

// Create file and delete if it exists
FileInfo file = filePath.CreateFileAndDelteIfExist();

// Read all lines in the file
IEnumerable<string> lines = file.AllLines();

// And so on...
