Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection - Check if a service is registered in the DI container

After using other DI containers like Microsoft Unity, StructureMap and Autofac, I'm now using the built-in Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection DI container most of the time.  The default DI container lacks some more advanced features that these other containers have, but for most use cases it is sufficient.

This week I was looking at a way to check if a specific service was registered in the DI container without resolving and constructing the service instance. Turns out that this feature was introduced in .NET 6 through the IServiceProviderIsService interface (what’s in a name).

This interface provides a single method that you can invoke to check whether a given service type is registered in the DI container. To use it, you can resolve the IServiceProviderIsService service itself from the container and call the IsService method:

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
