In this blog I’ll explore how to load a dictionary-style settings class as an IOption. This can be very useful when working with dependency injection.
Setup multiple setting-files with a .NET Console Application
In ASP.NET Core we are used to have multiple appsettings.json files with settings that differ per environment. I want to do the same in a Console Application. This makes debugging the application easier.
Sorting a Dictionary on a List of Keys

Dependency injection (with IOptions) in Console Apps in .NET Core 2
When you are used to building web applications, you kind of get hooked to the ease of Dependency Injection (DI) and the way settings can be specified in a JSON file and accessed through DI (IOptions
.NET Core MVC: regex routing with named groups
One of the big advantages of the .Net regular expression implementation is named groups. Today I want to show how to leverage named regular expression groups to build a routing constraint that will map each group value to a named route value.
