RC 1

The software is almost ready for final release. No feature development or enhancement of the software is undertaken; tightly scoped bug fixes are the only code you're allowed to write in this phase, and even then only for the most heinous and debilitating of bugs.

Here is a more detailed roadmap.

Getting Started

  • Clone the repository using the command git clone and checkout the dev branch.

Command line

  • Install the latest versions (current) for both Runtime and SDK of .NET Core from this page
  • Navigate to D:\OrchardCore\src\OrchardCore.Cms.Web or wherever your respective folder is on the command line in Administrator mode.
  • Call dotnet run.
  • Then open the http://localhost:5000 URL in your browser.

Visual Studio

  • Download Visual Studio 2017 or 2019 (any edition) from
  • Open OrchardCore.sln and wait for Visual Studio to restore all Nuget packages
  • Ensure OrchardCore.Cms.Web is the startup project and run it


  • Run docker run --name orchardcms orchardproject/orchardcore-cms-linux:latest
