DeepEqual is an extensible deep equality comparison library.


Install via NuGet (

Install-Package DeepEqual


To test equality simply call the IsDeepEqual extension method.

bool result = left.IsDeepEqual(right);

When used inside a test you might want to call ShouldDeepEqual instead. This method throws an exception with a detailed description of the differences between the 2 objects.


// or

left.ShouldDeepEqual(right, comparrison);

You can pass a custom comparison as the second argument to the ShouldDeepEqual method to override the default behaviour. You can also customize the behaviour inline using the WithDeepEqual extension method.

DeepEqual.Bindings extends the idea of comparing 2 object graphs (DeepEqual library). By default, nodes not matched by name between graphs make objects not equal. With DeepEqual.Bindings you can override that behavior. You can bind nodes with different names by specifying how they are compared by expression. The most common usage looks like this: var a1 = new A1 { B1 = new B1 { Y = "value" } }; var a2 = new A2 { B2 = new B2 { Y = "value" } }; var comparer = ExtendedComparer<A1, A2>.New() .Bind(x1 => x1.B1, x2 => x2.B2); var result = comparer.Compare(a1, a2); //result is true. is a HTTPModule that can intercept incoming requests that match your API Blueprints and reply with your documented responses. As a mock server it enables you to rapidly work on your UI/UX without worrying about the back-end part of the project (just-yet)
