. Since then, StructureMap 3.0 has been released, and it’s actually much easier to apply decorators now! Read on, and I’ll show you. Back in 2012… The StructureMap 2.6.x API didn’t provide a clean way to decorate things. You had to use the EnrichWith method, like so: var container = new Container(cfg =>
