runtimeconfig.json schema

This defines the schema for .NET Core's runtimeconfig.json file.

Usage in an editor

Using Visual Studio, you can get auto-completion if you import the schema in your .JSON file like this:

  "$schema": ""
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using McMaster.Extensions.CommandLineUtils;
using NuGet.Common;
namespace custom_restore
internal class MyNuGetLogger : LoggerBase
private IReporter _reporter;

Design meeting notes: 2018-03-02 - Libuv and source build


In an effort to make it possible to build ASP.NET Core from source code only on a single machine without access to or already-built assets, we need to revisit the structuring of our package dependencies. The NuGet package that contains Libuv bundles binaries built on macOS, Windows, and Linux. This means it is not possible to build the package, Libuv.nupkg, from source code only -- you must have multiple machines. Furthermore, because Microsoft.AspNetCore.App depends on this package via transitive reference through Microsoft.AspNetCore.Server.Kestrel, a project restore against source-built only packages cannot succeed in offline mode.


Possible solutions

We went over ways we could solve this. This includes:
