This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Since we last talked about Nancy on the technology radar it has become the default choice on our .NET projects. Architectures centred around small, vertical slices and microservices simply require light-weight deployment options and low ceremony tooling.

Nancy continues to gain traction in the Alt.NET community and we have found it particularly useful for deploying low-ceremony, lightweight fakes for testing in a microservices environment.

Nancy is a lightweight, open-source web framework for .NET. In the spirit of Sinatra for Ruby, Nancy provides just the essentials necessary to implement web applications with minimal extraneous code. Because the framework is independent of any particular hosting environment, the developer is freed from the IIS and ASP.NET environment. This makes Nancy an excellent complement to OWIN and compatible with other OWIN modules. We are really happy to see the emergence of lightweight web frameworks in a number of other languages as well; Spark for Java, Flask for Python, etc..
