  • Which libraries/frameworks are you using for Event Sourcing?
    5 projects | | 5 Oct 2022
    Haven't tried it myself yet, but they were in .NET foundation, them left after some drama:
  • Straightforward Event Sourcing with TypeScript and NodeJS
    7 projects | | 3 Aug 2022
    Thanks for the feedback and the link! Indeed that looks similar. I think that too many NodeJS tooling is made by C# or Java devs bringing their OOP habits. In my opinion, TypeScript and NodeJS development shines the most when you're cutting all the boilerplate and keeping things simple. Functional composition helps in that. I'm also coming from the .NET world and am co-maintainer of the Postgres-based library:, but I try to keep my OOP habits on a leash ;) Out of curiosity, how are you dealing with the eventual consistency and the read-your-own-writes guarantee on MongoDB in your library?
  • .NET build tool using Bullseye and SimpleExec
    6 projects | | 22 Feb 2022
    I personally advocate Bullseye in combination with SimpleExec as a build tool for .NET projects due to its sheer simplicity by providing a bare bones API to define the tasks and their dependent tasks in plain C# code. Both these libraries are build by Adam Ralph. It does not enforce any specific model or structure to write your build tasks. When someone runs through the build script, it is fairly straight forward to understand whats going on. We use this build tool setup for Marten for both local dev and CI build tasks and has worked well so far. Also many OSS projects have adopted it.
  • GitHub action to publish .NET packages to NuGet
    3 projects | | 22 Feb 2022
    I have been a co-maintainer of .NET OSS library Marten and largely involved in taking care of the DevOps stuff pertaining to CI pipeline, build and docs system. In the early days, the build was driven using a RAKE build script written by Jeremy Miller, our lead dev and creator of Marten. NuGet packages were published from the local dev machine after confirming that we had bumped up the versions of the packages in preparation for the release. Apparently, this being a manual step, we publish the NuGet packages but sometimes tend to forget tagging and creation of release in GitHub (you know how an OSS author life is around managing day job and doing open source work).

  • The Nosql Store That Everyone Ignored
    4 projects | | 5 Sep 2021
    There is a .NET project that uses this feature to create a NoSQL db experience. I've been using it for a few years and it's been great.

  • EF vs Dapper - a false dilemma
    3 projects | | 27 Aug 2021
    Regarding the impedance mismatch, maybe take a look at Marten. It currently only supports PostgreSQL but it does open up the doors to using document and relational stores within the same database, should you have the need.
  • Devs who use EF instead of Dapper: Why?
    4 projects | | 27 Aug 2021
    If you haven't yet - take a look at martendb - document db with opt-in event sourcing all built on the power and reputation of Postgres!
  • MongoDB C# Driver Vs. MongoDB.Entities Benchmark
    2 projects | | 18 Jun 2021
    I had the same headache others had when it came to mongo, just made things much harder than it had to be. Once I found Marten on Postgres to fill my free/cross platform documentDB needs, I never even considered going back; exceeded the expectations I ever had for mongo.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing superstore and Marten you can also consider the following projects:

Event Store - The stream database optimised for event sourcing

MongoDB - The MongoDB Database

RavenDB - ACID Document Database

Yessql - A .NET document database working on any RDBMS

LiteDB - LiteDB - A .NET NoSQL Document Store in a single data file - - Entity Framework Core provider for PostgreSQL

FluentMigrator - Fluent migrations framework for .NET

Streamstone - Event store for Azure Table Storage

Apache Ignite - Apache Ignite

plv8 - V8 Engine Javascript Procedural Language add-on for PostgreSQL

LINQ to DB - Linq to database provider.

Firebase.Net - C# wrapper over Firebase database REST API
