I have a homegrown ORM called Postulate that is built around Dapper, with a CP article here in fact: Intro to Postulate ORM[^] This article is a bit out of date as I actively work on it here: [^]

I completely agree that EF is too complicated, and in particular it's the Migrations feature I have found really painful. (In fairness, my gf uses it at work, and she has no real issue with it. I guess your mileage may vary.)

I think ORM is neat area to work in, and I simply have a lot of passion for it. I've found it a really interesting challenge to balance simplicity and power. Dapper makes a lot of good things possible -- I'm a huge fan of Dapper.

I admire Dapper.FastCrud (I think it's called), it's another ORM built around Dapper as the name suggests, and I sort of envy the simplicity they achieved. I do a few extra things to support code-first and some special tooling to generate database tables from model classes.

I've actually never used Linq to SQL, but I hear lots of praise for it.
