Cross platform .NET command-line tools for .NET Core. Some subcommands such as dotnet build have their own usage documentation. More information:

  • Initialize a new .NET project:

dotnet new {{template_short_name}}

  • Restore NuGet packages:

dotnet restore

  • Build and execute the .NET project in the current directory:

dotnet run

  • Run a packaged dotnet application (only needs the runtime, the rest of the commands require the .NET Core SDK installed):

dotnet {{path/to/application.dll}}
