Installing Iridium

Iridium is supported on the following platforms:

  • Windows (.NET 4.5 or higher and .NET Core)
  • MacOS/Linux (Mono)
  • MacOS/Linux (.NET Core)
  • iOS (Xamarin)
  • Android (Xamarin)
  • UWP

To use Iridium in an application, you need to install the iridium Nuget package and at least one database provider, which are available on Nuget.

The database providers available are:

Database Nuget package Availability
SQLite iridium.db.sqlite all platforms
SQL Server iridium.db.sqlserver all platforms
MySQL iridium.db.mysql .NET 4.5 / .NETStandard 2.0
Postgres iridium.db.postgres .NET 4.5 / .NETStandard 2.0

When using Sqlite on Windows Phone, you also need to install the Sqlite plugin for Visual Studio. Since version 2.1.0, this is no longer required for UWP applications.

Note: in previous versions, Sqlite was included in the base library. This is no longer the case (since 2.1.0)
