The AKEless Build System for C#/.NET

Latest Release Latest Pre-Release Downloads License

Table of Contents


NUKE is the most intuitive and productive build automation system for C#/.NET that runs cross-platform on .NET Core, .NET Framework, and Mono. While builds are bootstrapped with conventional Bash or PowerShell scripts, their actual implementation resides in simple C# console applications. This approach unleashes the power of the type system and natively provides IDE features like code-completion, refactorings, and debugging. A custom global tool and several IDE extensions further improve how build projects are setup, authored and executed. A revolutionary code-generation approach ensures scalable integration of third-party tools like MSBuild or dotnet CLI.

Here is a short list of some most-loved features:


Continuous Integration

NUKE builds and tests itself on several different CI servers, which helps ensuring a working integration with those systems. At the same time, the individual configuration files serve as example for the generation experience:

Build Server Status Platform Configuration
TeamCity TeamCity Win settings.kts
GitHub Actions GitHub Actions Win / Ubuntu / MacOS continuous.yml
GitLab CI GitLab CI Ubuntu .gitlab-ci.yml
Azure Pipelines Azure Pipelines Win / Linux / MacOS azure-pipelines.yml
AppVeyor AppVeyor Win / Ubuntu appveyor.yml
