On my research list: AsyncBridge (adds C#5 async features for .NET 4 projects)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/18

Having a done a lot of Async stuff in the .NET 2, 3.x and 4 era with multimedia applications (oh, the days of SynchronizationContext), this project seems very interesting:


Adds the new C#5 async features for .NET 4 projects

Download this project as a .zip file
Download this project as a tar.gz file

What does it do?

AsyncBridge lets you use the VS 11 C#5 compiler to write code that uses the async and await keywords, but to target .NET 4.0. It was published by Daniel Grunwald (from SharpDevelop) here.

As an extra, I’ve thrown in the new C#5 caller info attributes, which lets you automatically add the method name, line number or file path to your code.

Authors and Contributors

Daniel Grunwald (@dgrunwald) – Original code.

Omer Mor (@OmerMor) – Turned it into a full blown github repo with the complimentary nuget.

Alex Davies (@alexdavies74) – Wrote the blog post that inspired this, and is actively improving the code.
