Key Points

  • 🚀 Reduces boilerplate ceremony for your program.cs file.
  • ✅ Sets up Serilog around the entire application. (:wrench: Configure all settings via your appsettings.json file(s))
  • ✅ Simple to add some extra (helpful) log header/footer.
  • ✅ Can also add logging to your Startup class (new with ASP.NET Core 6+)

In summary: this library makes is <b>SIMPLE</b> (by abstracting away most of the boring ceremony) to setup your ASP.NET Core application.


Package is available via NuGet.

dotnet add package WorldDomination.SimpleHosting 

More Information:

Basically, turn your program.cs into this :

public static Task Main(string[] args)
    return WorldDomination.SimpleHosting.Program.Main<Startup>(args);

and you've now got some Serilog all wired up along with some nice application-wide error handling.

For more custom settings:

public static Task Main(string[] args)
    // Every Option here is optional.
    // Set what you want.
    var options = new MainOptions
        CommandLineArguments = args,
        FirstLoggingInformationMessage = "~~ Sample Web Application ~~",
        LogAssemblyInformation = true,
        LastLoggingInformationMessage = "-- Sample Web Application has ended/terminated --",
        StartupActivation = new System.Func<WebHostBuilderContext, ILogger, Startup>((context, logger) => new Startup(context.Configuration, logger))

    return SimpleHosting.Program.Main<Startup>(options);
