# DotPulsar

CI - Unit

The official .NET client library for Apache Pulsar.

DotPulsar is written entirely in C# and implements Apache Pulsar's binary protocol.

What's new?

Have a look at the changelog.

Getting Started

Let‘s take a look at a “Hello world” example, where we first produce a message and then consume it. Note that the topic and subscription will be created if they don’t exist.

First, we need a Pulsar setup. See Pulsar docs for how to set up a local standalone Pulsar instance.

Install the NuGet package DotPulsar and run the follow code example:

using DotPulsar;
using DotPulsar.Extensions;

const string myTopic = "persistent://public/default/mytopic";

// connecting to pulsar://localhost:6650
await using var client = PulsarClient.Builder().Build();

// produce a message
await using var producer = client.NewProducer(Schema.String).Topic(myTopic).Create();
await producer.Send("Hello World");

// consume messages
await using var consumer = client.NewConsumer(Schema.String)

await foreach (var message in consumer.Messages())
    Console.WriteLine($"Received: {message.Value()}");
    await consumer.Acknowledge(message);
