VDS.Common is a lightweight, dependency-free library of useful advanced data structures such as Trees, Tries and indexing tailored dictionaries.

It is based on code originally from in the dotNetRDF Project (see past code history here and here) but was split off into a separate library once it became sufficiently generic to be more broadly useful.

VDS.Common is built to target the following:

  • .NET Core netstandard1.3
  • .NET Core netstandard2.0


VDS.Common is licensed under the MIT License

Usage and Documentation

Releases can be found here on GitHub. From 1.7.0 the GitHub release includes a ZIP file containing the compiled binaries and a CHM of the API documentation.

To use VDS.Common simply add a reference to the DLL for the appropriate .Net version to your project. If you are using NuGet simply search for VDS.Common and install it that way.


For documentation on the features this library provides please see the Wiki.
