  • Polly

    Polly is a .NET resilience and transient-fault-handling library that allows developers to express policies such as Retry, Circuit Breaker, Timeout, Bulkhead Isolation, and Fallback in a fluent and thread-safe manner. From version 6.0.1, Polly targets .NET Standard 1.1 and 2.0+.

    Project mention: The Retry Pattern and Retry Storm Anti-pattern | dev.to | 2024-01-15

    In our applications, we should wrap all requests to remote services in code that implements a retry policy that follows one of the strategies I listed earlier. If you are a .NET developer like myself, you may be familiar with the Polly library. Golang has a library called Retry, and there are numerous third-party libraries for Python and Java.

  • MediatR

    Simple, unambitious mediator implementation in .NET

    Project mention: How small is the smallest .NET Hello World binary? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-09

    The widely used MediatR library[0] could be used to do that as well, just FYI.
