Database Context

A Database Context instance represents a combination of the Unit Of Work and Repository patterns such that it can be used to query from a database and group together changes that will then be written back to the store as a unit.

This class usually used with a derived type that contains DbSet<TEntity> properties for the root entities of the model. These sets are automatically initialized when the instance of the derived class is created.

Once you have defined your Entity Type Configurations then you will want to expose the DbSet<TEntity> to enable them to accessed.

The API Template Pack helps you to create your Database Context which is preconfigured and ready to go right out of the box.

public class ArticlesContext : BaseContext<ArticlesContext>
    public ArticlesContext(DbContextOptions<ArticlesContext> options)
        : base(options)

    // Add more DB Sets as required
    public DbSet<Sources> Sources { get; set; }

    protected override void OnModelCreating(ModelBuilder modelBuilder)
