dotnet-sdk: add darwin support, set myself as maintainer #68709

wants to merge 1 commit into from

@reset reset commented Sep 13, 2019

This commit adds support for the dotnet core dotnet-sdk to the Darwin platform. This is my first commit to the nixpkgs repository so it also includes a modification to the maintainers list to include an entry for myself.

Apologies if I've gotten any of the contributing guidelines wrong, I did read them, I promise!

  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits []

This new expression has a lot of duplication with the default variant, conditionalizing the sources and patchelf calls would be better.


buildPhase = ''
  runHook preBuild
  ${stdenv.lib.optionalString stdenv.isLinux ''    
    patchelf --set-interpreter "${}" ./dotnet
    patchelf --set-rpath "${rpath}" ./dotnet
    find -type f -name "*.so" -exec patchelf --set-rpath '$ORIGIN:${rpath}' {} \;
  echo -n "dotnet-sdk version: "
  ./dotnet --version
  runHook postBuild
-change /System/Library/Frameworks/Security.framework/Versions/A/Security \
${Security}/Library/Frameworks/Security.framework/Security \
-change /System/Library/Frameworks/GSS.framework/Versions/A/GSS \
${GSS}/Library/Frameworks/GSS.framework/GSS {} \;

Frameworks and things like libc are impure on darwin so rewriting references doesn't really do anything. It's fine to keep the system references since this is a precompiled binary anyway.

Ah, thank you so much for the heads up there. It wasn't clear to me that the Darwin implementation wasn't impure. ❤️

The work in #73262 is actually exactly what I believe we should be building on. I'm going to close this in favor of conditionalizing that work as @LnL7 suggested above. Will re-open once that's merged!

@reset looks like #73262 has been merged. Any chance you're still working on getting dotnet-sdk to work on darwin?

@ldub yes, the work continued here #78787. I haven't had the time to revisit the PR to clean it up but I'll make a note to do it this week!
