.NET Core Docker Image
This repository contains
Dockerfile definitions for dotnet/cli Docker images.
This project is part of .NET Core command-line (CLI) tools. You can find samples, documentation, and getting started instructions for .NET Core CLI tools on our getting started page.
microsoft/dotnet images come in different flavors, each designed for a specific use case.
This image contains the .NET Core SDK which is comprised of two parts:
- .NET Core
- .NET Core command line tools
This image is recommended if you are trying .NET Core for the first time, as it allows both developing and running
applications. Use this image for your development process (developing, building and testing applications).
The most straightforward way to use this image is to use a Docker container as both the build and runtime environment for your application. Creating a simple
Dockerfile with the following content in the same directory as your project files will compile and run your project:
This image includes multiple
ONBUILD triggers which should cover most applications. The build will
COPY . /dotnetapp and
RUN dotnet restore.
This image also includes the
ENTRYPOINT dotnet run instruction which will run your application when the Docker image is run.
You can then build and run the Docker image:
$ docker build -t my-dotnet-app . $ docker run -it --rm --name my-running-app my-dotnet-app
This image contains only .NET Core (runtime and libraries) and it is optimized for running portable .NET Core applications. If you wish to run self-contained applications, please use the
core-deps image described below.
This image contains the operating system with all of the native dependencies needed by .NET Core. Use this image to:
Windows Containers images use the
microsoft/nanoserver base OS images from Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5. For more information on Windows Containers and a getting started guide, please see: Windows Containers Documentation.
