re-mix is an open source library (LGPL) hosted on codeplex[1] to bring the mixin technology to C# and Visual Basic.NET.

History[edit]

.NET does not offer multiple inheritance.[2] Nevertheless, in some use cases multiple inheritance support would be helpful for .NET applications. In languages such as Ruby these use cases were solved with mixins.[3]

The company rubicon created a mixin library for the Microsoft.NET framework [4] to add multiple inheritance to their own applications.

The mixin library became part of the open source framework re-motion. On March 2011, re-mix has been published on CodePlex as spin-off project of re-motion.
