Short Description
Docker build with Mono Support
Full Description


Base docker image including the dotnet cli (RTM) and mono


The microsoft/dotnet image does not have any Mono support.

The previous microsoft/aspnet:latest or :clr tags would allow you to utilise .NET 4.5.1 DLLs with your ASP.NET MVC 6 application.

This docker image intends to fill this gap.

Base operating system

The base operating system is Ubuntu 14.04.

Reasoning for this:

  • Attempts were made to inherit from microsoft/dotnet, and install mono (i.e. on Debian Wheezy). The mono apt-get install was not supported on Wheezy.
  • Installing dotnet on Debian Jessie (i.e. inheriting from library/mono) caused a lot of issues with out-of-date packages.
  • The dotnet install process for Ubuntu 14.04 is very straightforward.

What's included

  • dotnet cli (1.0.0-preview2-003121) and therefore the dotnet runtime (RTM)
  • Mono (version
