RepoDb - a hybrid ORM Library for .NET.

RepoDb is an open-source .NET ORM that bridge the gaps between micro-ORMs and full-ORMs. It helps the developer to simplify the switch-over of when to use the BASIC and ADVANCE operations during the development.

It is the best alternative ORM to both Dapper and EntityFramework.

The benefits of using this library

  • The development experience is like Dapper but the feature is almost like EntityFramework.
  • The installation is easy and fast, it can then be used right-away.
  • The layer of like DbContext has been eliminated, those give the developers more control on the implementation.
  • The calls to fluent and raw-SQL methods is just a dot away.
  • The implementation of repository is becoming more simple by leveraging the built-in repositories.
  • The control to query optimizations is easy via hints.
  • The processes to handle the large datasets is very-simple with batch and bulk operations.
  • The round-trips to the database is being minimized with 2nd-Layer cache.
  • The column transformation can be customized with property handlers.
  • The auditing and tracing is much more simpler using the trace capability.
  • The support to dynamics is rich and can even work without the models.
  • The transmission of the data from different RDBMS data providers only take few lines of codes.

It is easy-to-use

RepoDb operations were implemented as extended methods of the IDbConnection object. For as long the connection is open, the developers can do all the activities towards the database.

It is high-performant

RepoDb has its own compiler and pre-caches the already-generated compiled expressions for future reusabilities. It understands your schema to create the most optimal compiled expression AOT.

It is efficient

RepoDb extracts and caches the object properties, execution contexts, object mappings and SQL statements. It is reusing them all throughout the process of transformations and executions.

It is high-quality

RepoDb is a high-quality micro-ORM supported by 8K+ real-life Unit and Integration Tests. It is highly tested by various critical systems that is running in production environment.

The benchmark result to be shown on this page will always be referring to the community-approved ORM bencher tool (the RawDataAccessBencher tool).

Results below is the actual recent official execution result.

This section will always be updated with the latest official result.


We would like to make RepoDb the mainstream hybrid-ORM library for .NET technology. Please help us build and realize the solution.

To contribute, please find a for-grabs item and issue a PR. Otherwise, please create a new issue for us to look-at and discuss. If you wish to contribute to the documentation site, it is hosted in the RepoDb.NET repository.

Your biggest contribution is to utilize and share this solution to other developers.
