dotnet adr - Make Future You Thank Past You.

A cross platform .NET Global Tool for creating and managing Architectural Decision Records (ADR).


Architectural Decision Records (ADRs) are simple Markdown documents used to record technical choices for a project by summarizing the context, the decision, and the consequences. dotnet adr is a tool and a bundle of the most common ADR templates you can use to create and maintain ADRs in your solution.

Create your own custom ADR Template Package

While we use MADR as the default template, because it has a nice balance of simplicity and power, it doesn't mean that it's the best template for you, your team, and your organization. First check-out the different templates which are available out of the box. If none of these are suitable then it's easy to make your own!

This repo contains an example extensibility "Third Party" ADR template example located in /Solutions/ThirdParty.Adr.Templates, this is also available via as thirdparty.adr.templates.

There are straightforward conventions for creating a customer ADR template package:

  1. Create a folder which matches the name of the template, using kebab-case. i.e. my-custom-adr-template
  2. Inside that folder create a file
  3. Add the following front-matter and mandatory headings to
