.NET Core Runtime (CoreRT)
This repo contains the .NET Core runtime optimized for ahead of time compilation. The CoreRT compiler can compile a managed .NET Core application into a native (architecture specific) single-file executable that is easy to deploy. It can also produce standalone dynamic or static libraries that can be consumed by applications written in other programming languages. To learn more about CoreRT, see the intro document.
Try Our Samples
If you would like to give CoreRT a try, we publish daily snapshots of CoreRT to a NuGet feed. Using CoreRT is as simple as adding a new package reference to your .NET Core project and publishing it. Check out one of our samples: a "Hello World" console app, a simple ASP.NET Core app, a MonoGame game or a native library. The
README.md file in each sample's directory will guide you through the process step by step.
- Windows, MacOS and Linux x64 w/ RyuJIT codegen is able to compile many complex apps.
- Linux ARM w/ RyuJIT codegen: ElmSharp Hello Tizen application (detailed status)
- CppCodeGen (targets all platforms that support C++): Simple C# programs. The big missing features are garbage collection and exception handling.
- WebAssembly: Early prototype that compiles and runs very trivial programs only. Many features are not yet implemented.
