Installing Couchbase Lite on .Net
Description — How to install Couchbase Lite on .Net
Abstract — Using Nuget to install Couchbase Lite on csharp
Create or open an existing Visual Studio project and install Couchbase Lite using the following method.
Install either of the following packages from Nuget.Couchbase Lite Community Edition
Couchbase.Litepackage.Couchbase Lite Enterprise Edition
Nuget packages can be installed via
packages.config. It is recommended to use the
PackageReferencestyle of dependency management because there is a strict version requirement between Couchbase Lite and its dependent Support library (
Couchbase.Lite.Enterprise.Support.<Platform>for Community and Enterprise respectively). If you are using
packages.config, you must take extra care when upgrading the package to make sure that the support library is also updated to the exact same version. Versions that are not the same are incompatible with each other.
Your app must call the relevant
Activate()function inside of the class that is included in the support assembly. There is only one public class in each support assembly, and the support assembly itself is a nuget dependency.
For example, UWP looks like
Couchbase.Lite.Support.UWP.Activate(). Currently the support assemblies provide dependency injected mechanisms for default directory logic, and platform specific logging (i.e., csharp will log to logcat with correct log levels and tags. No more "mono-stdout" always at info level.)
