.NET Core 2.0 SDK Preview 1 Support in Visual Studio for Mac 7.0
This document covers the steps required in order to use build and run .NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0 projects with Visual Studio for Mac.
Existing project templates target .NET Core 1.1
If only the .NET Core 2.0 SDK is installed then the projects will fail to run due to the 1.1 runtime being unavailable. To target .NET Core 2.0 the TargetFramework in the project will need to be edited to target netcoreapp2.0 or netstandard2.0. Alternatively the dotnet cli installed with the .NET Core 2.0 SDK can be used to create the project with the correct dependencies and target framework.
