Windows-Service-Plus is a Visual Studio 2015 Project Template to get you started with a full featured Windows Service based onTopshelf and pre-loaded with logging, IoC container and more.
The idea is that you should be able to focus directly on your service logic right from the start, bypassing all the plumbing and boilerplate code.
Defaults are reasonable and will apply to most services but of course you can always change it to fit your needs
Since the project is based on Topshelf you get all the goodies the framework has to offer such as a service that is easier to test and deploy. Not to mention the hability to run and debug the service as a console application.
You don't have to be know Topshelf to take advantage of this project template but it is something worth checking.
Check GitHub repo for more details on this project template.
