    Some people have tried using the standard MySQL EF libraries for working with MariaDB with varying degrees of success: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20183781/using-mariadb-with-entity-framework. Someone else had to do a bit of kludging as well: http://k16c.eu/2014/10/12/asp-net-identity-2-0-mariadb/

    I looked at both of your links but none of them give any solution to how you can connect to a MariaDB using entityframe work or anything ELSE that old sqlconnection with open and close the sql crap( sorry just hate it) Entity is so much more easy.

    Does anyone know a way to Connect Entity Framework to a MariaDB
