# dotnet

Dotnet (opens new window) is a software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large class library named Framework Class Library (FCL) and provides language interoperability (each language can use code written in other languages) across several programming languages.

You can easily add it to your Lando app by adding an entry to the services top-level config in your Landofile.

# Supported versions

# Unsupported versions

Due to upstream changes these no longer work.

# Patch versions

This service does not support patch versions but if you really need something like that, you could consider using either a custom compose service or a service overrides.

# Configuration

Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this service. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means, we highly recommend scanning the services documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.

Also note that options, in addition to the build steps and overrides that are available to every service, are shown below:

    type: dotnet:2.0
    ssl: false
    command: tail -f /dev/null
    port: 80

# Specifying a command

Note that if you do not define a command for this service, it will effectively be a "cli" container (e.g. it will not serve or run an application by default but will be available to run dotnet commands against).

If you want to actually launch a dotnet application, consider setting the command to something as shown below:

    type: dotnet
    command: dotnet run

# Using SSL

Also note that ssl: true will only generate certs in the default locations and expose port 443. It is up to the user to use the certs and secure port correctly in their application like as in this article (opens new window).

# Setting a port

While we assume your dotnet service is running on port 80, we recognize that many dotnet apps also run on port 8888 or otherwise. You can easily change our default to match whatever your app needs.

    type: dotnet
    port: 8888
