.NET Core Bundler

The Bundler is a tool that embeds an application and its dependencies into the AppHost executable. This tool is used to publish apps as a single-file, as described in this design document.

Why is the Bundler in core-setup repo?

The bundler is an independent tool for merging several files into one. The bundler code lives in the core-setup repo because:

  • It is closely related to the AppHost code, which facilitates easy development, update, and testing.
  • The dotnet/cli and dotnet/sdk repos were considered unsuitable because of repo ownership and maintainence concerns.
  • It is not worth creating an managing an independent repo just for the tool.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
