dotnet core 2.0 pluralize when scaffolding?

entity-framework-core

Question

Setting my a .net core 2.x class library with ef core 2. Have generated the scaffolding for the entities from my db schema. However, I forgot to even check whether there as an option to pluralize the entity names. I noticed this when I pulled over one my methods from a class library that uses EF 6.1 and the entities are pluralized. Is there an option for this and to simply regenerate my entities as pluralized?

  1. Write a class that implements the Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Design.IPluralizer interface. You can write your own, or use a NuGet package such as Inflector

    public class Pluralizer : IPluralizer
    {
        public string Pluralize(string name)
        {
            return Inflector.Inflector.Pluralize(name) ?? name;
        }
    
        public string Singularize(string name)
        {
            return Inflector.Inflector.Singularize(name) ?? name;
        }
    }
    
  2. Write a class that implements the Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Design.IDesignTimeServices interface to register your IPluralizer implementation in your entity framework project.

    public class DesignTimeServices : IDesignTimeServices
    {
        public void ConfigureDesignTimeServices(IServiceCollection services)
        {
            services.AddSingleton<IPluralizer, Pluralizer>();
        }
    }
    
  3. Run (or rerun) your Scaffold-DbContext command from the package manager console as usual. If you want it to overwrite the previously generated code, you need the -force option.
