OpenSilver Visual Studio extension uses .NetStandard?

Postby juanbucz » Tue Mar 24, 2020 3:25 pm


I've been playing around the Alpha Release of OpenSilver and am quite excited by the possibilities.

I created a simple sample project using the Visual Studio OpenSilver extension.
I see that it creates a .NetStandard 2.0 library.
I was curious as to why the is the case?

The underlying OpenSilver library relies on AspNetCore.
Are there plans to have the extensions moved to .NetCore?

How will all this play out as .Net 5.0 comes out later this year?

Thanks for your message.

We use the .NetStandard 2.0 library so that it also works in the Simulator, which is currently made in WPF. The Simulator is a powerful tool that lets you debug your OpenSilver application using the full featured .NET Framework debugging tools of Visual Studio.

OpenSilver relies on Microsoft Blazor, which relies on AspNet core. We plan to stay in sync with the technology used by Blazor.

We plan to move to .Net 5.0 when available.
