Mono Docker image
This image provides Docker releases of the Mono Project.
Supported tags and versions
We push every Mono release to Docker Hub. The latest version, one minor version before that and the last version before a major version bump are periodically rebuilt by Docker Hub to pull in updates from the base Debian image.
All other version tags are still available, but won't get those updates
so you need to keep your images up to date by running
apt-get update yourself. We encourage you to move
to latest Mono releases as soon as they're available.
Starting with Mono 5.2 we provide a
slim variant which only contains the bare minimum to run a simple console app. You can use this as a base and add just what you need.
How to use this image
This image can be used to run stand-alone Mono console apps or build your projects in a container.
FROM mono:latest RUN mono --version RUN msbuild MySolution.sln RUN mono MyConsoleApp.exe
This Docker image is provided by Xamarin/Microsoft, for users of the Mono Project.
