Deploy C# code to Linux RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know there is a thing called Mono.

    I wonder if there is an official compiler for Linux? MS open sourced and ported part of .NET Framework to Linux, but it was not quite long time ago, I did not find too much useful information on Google.

    What I am trying to achieve is:

    1. Write and debug C# code on Windows using VS;
    2. Copy paste code to a Linux environment;
    3. Write a bash script or alike/simply invoke something like "make" to build the code.

    The code I am writing is a headless server back end, so there is no concern about GUI at all.

    Thank you!

  • Hello,

    I'm not aware of such a tool. In Linux there is only Visual Studio Code. But I don't think it is helpful to your scenario.

    Please notice that this forum is about .NET installation, not related to your question.

    I recommend you follow Visual Studio team blog and consult them about this issue.

    Best regards,
