Console.Waterworks.Core is the .Net Core version of Console.Waterworks. Both projects are Nuget packages. And, their main purpose is to help you write extendable command-based console programs. If you want to write a console program using the full .Net Framework, use Console.Waterworks.


To use Console.Waterworks.Core, I recommend you meet the following pre-requisites:

Quick Start - Wiring Console.Waterworks.Core in to your Console Program

Before continuing... I am skipping the part about creating a .Net console program. This is because I assume you know how to do that. I am, also, assuming you are using Visual Studio 2017 and C# (not VB or F#).

1 Add Console.Waterworks.Core to your project via Nuget. You can do this using Visual Studio's (2017) Package Manager GUI. Or, you can use the Package Manager Console. Here is the command for the PM Console,

# Enter the version of number of your choice.
Install-Package Console.Waterworks.Core -Version 0.1.0-alpha1

2 Create a class called ConsoleCommands. It can go anywhere as long as it is in the same project as the console program.

3 Make a note of the ConsoleCommands namespace.

4 Head to the Main method in Program.cs and add the following lines of code,

public static void Main(string[] args)
    CW_Liaison liaison = new CW_Liaison();
    liaison.Run("CW_Console", true);

5 Head back to ConsoleCommands and make it public.

6 Stay in ConsoleCommands and write the following method,

public string Test()
    return "Congratulations! It works.";

7 Run the program and type "Test" into the console.

8 If all has gone well, you should see the “Congratulations! It works." message.

9 Add more methods to you console program.

(Offline) Guides

I provided a link to Console.Waterworks' Wiki as a online guide for learning about Console.Waterworks(.Core)'s architecture. With that said, I have, also, mad a couple of guides for when you are offline. The are as follows,

  • The Quick Guide to Console.Waterworks.Core
  • The Architecture Guide Console.Waterworks.Core

These guides are printer friendly. And, they are best consumed on your favourite reading chair.
