Raylib-cs targets net5.0 and net6.0.

Installation - NuGet

This is the prefered method to get started.

dotnet add package Raylib-cs --version


If you need to edit Raylib-cs source then you will need to add the bindings as a project (see below).

If you are new to using NuGet (or you've forgotten) and are trying to run the above command in the command prompt, remember that you need to be inside the intended project directory (not just inside the solution directory) otherwise the command won't work.

Installation - Manual

  1. Download/clone the repo

  2. Add Raylib-cs/Raylib-cs.csproj to your project as an existing project.

  3. Download the native libraries for the platforms you want to build for using the official 4.5.0 release. NOTE: the MSVC version is required for Windows platforms

  4. (Recommended) Put the native library for each platform under Raylib-cs/runtimes/{platform}/native/ (Optional) If you want to handle the native libraries yourself, make sure they are either in the same directory as the executable and/or can be found in the search path. See for details.

  5. Start coding!

Hello, World!

using Raylib_cs;

namespace HelloWorld
    static class Program
        public static void Main()
            Raylib.InitWindow(800, 480, "Hello World");

            while (!Raylib.WindowShouldClose())

                Raylib.DrawText("Hello, world!", 12, 12, 20, Color.BLACK);
