.NET Runtime Lab
This repo is for experimentation and exploring new ideas that may or may not make it into the main dotnet/runtime repo. Encouraging .NET Runtime Experiments describes reasons that motivated creating this repository.
Active Experimental Projects
Currently, this repo contains the following experimental projects:
- Utf8String - A new UTF-8 String data type in the runtime.
- FreeBSD - Port of .NET runtime to FreeBSD
- NativeAOT-LLVM - LLVM generation for Native AOT compilation (including Web Assembly)
- ManagedQuic - Fully managed implementation of QUIC protocol
- LLHTTP - a set of flexible, lower-level HTTP APIs.
- CompatibilityPackages - a set of packages which help satisfy binary dependencies of .NETFramework assemblies on .NET.
- AssemblyBuilder.Save() - Prototyping the implementation of AssemblyBuilder.Save() functionality.
- Hot-Cold Splitting - Support the hot-cold splitting optimization in crossgen2.
- Green Threads - Prototyping the implementation of green threads.
You can create your own experiment, learn more here!
- s390x - Port of .NET runtime (Mono) to the s390x architecture. The changes were upstreamed to dotnet/runtime.
- DllImportGenerator - Roslyn Source Generator used for generating P/Invoke IL stubs.
- NativeAOT - .NET runtime optimized for ahead of time compilation.
- JsonCodeGen - Code generation for JSON.
This repo should contain issues that are tied to the experiments hosted here.
