Installing

"dependencies": {
  "LightInject.Microsoft.DependencyInjection": "<version>"
}

Usage

public class Startup
{       
    public IServiceProvider ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    {
        var container = new ServiceContainer();
        return container.CreateServiceProvider(services);
    }

    public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app)
    {          
        app.Run(async (context) =>
        {
            await context.Response.WriteAsync("Hello from LightInject");
        });
    }
}

Controllers

By default, controllers are not actually created by LightInject. They are created by the ASP.NET infrastructure and uses LightInject to resolve its dependencies. To enable LightInject to create the controller instances, we need to add the following line.

services.AddMvc().AddControllersAsServices();
