Singleton and renew

A way to manage the singleton instance.

In Trivial.Reflection namespace of Trivial.dll library.

Singleton resolver

You can register a set of object or their initialization into SingletonResolver for getting any of them in future.

// Register a value.

// Get the singleton value.
var num = SingletonResolver.Instance.Resolve<int>(); // num -> 56

// Register a value with a key.
SingletonResolver.Instance.Register<int>("seven", 7);

// Get the singleton value with a key.
num = SingletonResolver.Instance.Resolve<int>("seven"); // num -> 7

// More test.
num = SingletonResolver.Instance.Resolve<int>(); // num -> 56
SingletonResolver.Instance.Register<int>(() => 32);
num = SingletonResolver.Instance.Resolve<int>(); // num -> 32
num = SingletonResolver.Instance.Resolve<int>("seven"); // num -> 7

Singleton keeper

You can create a singleton keeper with the way to get the instance and automatically renew as need.

class SampleSingletonKeeper : SingletonKeeper<int>
    public SampleSingletonKeeper() : base()

    public TimeSpan Expiration { get; set; } = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1);

    protected override Task<bool> NeedRenewAsync()
        return Task.FromResult(DateTime.Now - RefreshDate > Expiration);

    protected override async Task<T> ResolveFromSourceAsync()
        return Cache + 1;

Then you can get the instance anywhere. The renew operation is thread-safe and will occur automatically as need when it expires.

var instance = new SampleSingletonKeeper();
var i = await instance.GetAsync();

Singleton renew timer

Since SingletonKeeper will auto renew the instance when you call GetAsync member method and it expires, you may want to ask the it renew in schedule.

// The singleton keeper will renew in every 2s.
var scheduler = new SingletonRenewTimer<int>(instance, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2)))

// Dispose the scheduler when you do not want it runs any more.
