Converting to .Net Core RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm hearing lots of talk about this new open framework runtime environment called .Net Core. My understanding is that it is a streamlined version of the .Net Framework that is open source, cross platform, and will be the basis of ASP 5.

    My question really is, how do I go about converting my existing application framework from .Net Framework, to .Net Core?

    I installed the Beta (8) version of ASP 5, and installed the DNX SDK, as well as DNVM here:

    https://github.com/dotnet/coreclr/blob/master/Documentation/install/get-dotnetcore-dnx-windows.md

    But, it's telling me to compile the app at the command prompt. That's like the bad old days when you would compile a Java app at the command prompt and then run the VM at the command prompt.

    Isn't there a visual studio template for a .Net Core class library? What's going on? How do I kick this conversion process off?

    I'm not sure if there're other open source project could implement that. But based on official documentation, you have to use command line.

    By the way, your case more related to .NET core issue, I would suggest you redirect to http://dotnet.github.io/core/support/ for better support .

    After some research, what I get is as following.

    At the moment, the .NET Core console app type is a useful byproduct of our engineering process.Over the next few months, we will be shaping it into a fully supported app type, including Visual Studio templates and debugging.
