Easiest way you'll ever write settings for your app.

  • Modular
  • One Liner
  • Abstract


PM> Install-Package nucs.JsonSettings

Getting Started

See<br> Test project:<br> Blog Posts:

JsonSettings is the base abstract class that inherits ISavable.<br> Here is a self explanatory quicky of to how and what:

  • I want a hardcoded settings file
//Step 1: create a class and inherit JsonSettings
class MySettings : JsonSettings {
    //Step 2: override a default FileName or keep it empty. Just make sure to specify it when calling Load!
    //This is used for default saving and loading so you won't have to specify the filename/path every time.
    //Putting just a filename without folder will put it inside the executing file's directory.
    public override string FileName { get; set; } = "TheDefaultFilename.extension"; //for loading and saving.

    #region Settings

    public string SomeProperty { get; set; }
    public int SomeNumberWithDefaultValue { get; set; } = 1;
    [JsonIgnore] public char ImIgnoredAndIWontBeSaved { get; set; }
    //Step 3: Override parent's constructors
    public MySettings() { }
    public MySettings(string fileName) : base(fileName) { }
//Step 4: Load
public MySettings Settings = JsonSettings.Load<MySettings>("config.json"); //relative path to executing file.
//or create a new empty
public MySettings Settings = JsonSettings.Construct<MySettings>("config.json");

//Step 5: Pwn.
Settings.SomeProperty = "ok";
  • I want a dynamic settings
    • Dynamic settings will automatically create new keys.
    • ValueTypes are returned as Nullable<Type>, therefore if a key doesn't exist - a null is returned.
//Step 1: Just load it, it'll be created if doesn't exist.
public SettingsBag Settings = JsonSettings.Load<SettingsBag>("config.json");
//Step 2: use!
Settings["key"]  = "dat value tho";
Settings["key2"] = 123; //dat number tho
dynamic dyn = Settings.AsDynamic();
if ((int?)dyn.key2==123)
dyn.Save(); /* or */ Settings.Save();
  • I want a encrypted settings file
    • Uses AES/Rijndael
    • Can be applied to any settings class because it is a module.
MySettings Settings = JsonSettings.Load<MySettings>("config.json", q=>q.WithEncryption("mysupersecretpassword"));
SettingsBag Settings = JsonSettings.Load<SettingsBag>("config.json", q=>q.WithEncryption("mysupersecretpassword"));
MySettings Settings = JsonSettings.Configure<MySettings>("config.json")
               //or: .WithModule<RijndaelModule>("pass");

SettingsBag Settings = JsonSettings.Configure<SettingsBag>("config.json")
               //or: .WithModule<RijndaelModule>("pass");

  • I want dynamic settings to automatically save when changed
    • note: SettingsBag has it's own implementation of EnableAutosave().
//Step 1:
SettingsBag Settings = JsonSettings.Load<SettingsBag>("config.json").EnableAutosave();
//Unavailable for hardcoded settings yet! (ty netstandard2.0 for not being awesome on proxies)
//Step 2:
Settings.AsDynamic().key = "wow"; //BOOM! SAVED!
Settings["key"] = "wow two"; //BOOM! SAVED!
  • I want hardcoded settings to automatically save when changed
    • Requires package nucs.JsonSettings.Autosave that uses Castle.Core.
Settings x  = JsonSettings.Load<Settings>().EnableAutosave();
ISettings x = JsonSettings.Load<Settings>().EnableIAutosave<ISettings>(); //Settings implements interface ISettings

x.Property = "value"; //Booyah! SAVED!
