Welcome to dotnet sdk

This repo contains core functionality needed to create .NET projects that is shared between VisualStudio and CLI.

Please refer to dotnet/project-system for the project system work that is specific to Visual Studio.

Build status

Windows x64

Testing a local build

To test your locally built SDK, run eng\dogfood.cmd after building. That script starts a new Powershell with the environment configured to redirect SDK resolution to your build.

From that shell your SDK will be available in:

  • any Visual Studio instance launched (via & devenv.exe)
  • dotnet build
  • msbuild

Installing the SDK
