What is Core WCF?

Core WCF is a port of Windows Communication Framework (WCF) to .NET Core. The goal of this project is to enable existing WCF projects to move to .NET Core.


To keep up to date on what's going on with CoreWCF, you can subscribe to the announcements repo to be notified about major changes and other noteworthy announcements.

How do I get started?

There are pre-release packages available from a NuGet feed hosted in Azure DevOps. You can download the packages by adding the following package source to your list of feeds.

If you are using a nuget.config file with only the default package source, after adding the CoreWCF feed it would look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <clear />
    <add key="" value="" />
    <add key="CoreWCF" value="" />
