    Windows users: Open PowerShell (or PowerShell Core).

  2. From the root folder of the source repo, this command will build the code & run all tests:

    ./build

    To build a specific target (or multiple targets):

    ./build [target [target...]]

    The common targets (case-insensitive) include:

    • Restore: Perform package restore
    • Build: Build the source
    • Test: Run all unit tests
    • TestCore: Run all unit tests (.NET Core)

    ./build --help

You can’t perform that action at this time.
