anito.NET is a simple, open source Object Relational Mapping framework for .NET.

Written in C# but still under development, Anitos objective is to speed up database-driven development through reusable patterns and database independent solutions.

Further aim would also be to implement a full linq support that targets different database providers.

"Anito" is a Filipino word which means ancient spirits. see

Anitos have traditionally served as guides and sources of knowledge, often solving the day-to-day problems of the common folk.

Currently the anito.NET project has 4 implemented providers which are under development:
  • Anito.Data.SqlClient for MS-SQL
  • Anito.Data.MySqlClient for MySQL
  • Anito.Data.SqliteClient for SQLite
  • Anito.Data.MongoDBClient for MongoDB (development started)
