Onion Architecture in ASP.NET Core with CQRS: Detailed & Illustrated

Computer Engineer Jeffrey Palermo created Onion Architecture for creating app which are highly maintainable and loosely coupled. This architecture somewhat resembles the layers which can be seen on cutting an onion vegetable. You can separate the layers of onion very easily and eat them in your salads. In the same way the layers of Onion Architecture are separatable as they are loosely coupled, and this gives a highly testable architecture.

In this tutorial I will be implementing Onion Architecture in ASP.NET Core with CQRS. You can download the complete source code from my GitHub Repository.

What is Onion Architecture

In the Onion Architecture there are separatable concentric layers of codes such that the inner most layer is fully independent to other layers. Mostly you have 3 layers in this architecture and these are – Domain, Application, and “Infrastructure + Presentation”. Domain is the innermost layer while Infrastructure + Presentation is outermost layer.
