Let’s improve my foremost website and podcast to .NET 6 LTS



.NET 6 is launched and it is a LTS launch which suggests it will be absolutely and actively supported for the subsequent 3 years. Should you’ve been paused ready for the suitable time to improve to .NET 6, it is a good time to make the transfer!

Proper now, Hanselman.com and Hanselminutes.com (my podcast) are operating on some model of .NET 5. You possibly can se by visiting them and scrolling to the very backside within the footer as I’ve added a git commit hash and Azure DevOps Construct Quantity and Construct ID to an ASP.NET web site and I am utilizing RuntimeInformation.FrameworkDescription to output the plain textual content model of .NET I am utilizing. This weblog is on .NET Core 3.0 which is an LTS launch however I will be working with Mark Downie this week to maneuver it to .NET 6 LTS as he is already acquired his occasion of dasBlog operating on 6!

OK, let’s have a look at what’s concerned. Let’s begin with my podcast website. I’ve acquired the code on GitHub and operating domestically with “dotnet run” on the command line in each Linux and Home windows. I can run the “dotnet improve assistant” which is nice, however I additionally prefer to drive stick shift typically for smaller tasks.

I am going to replace my TargetFramework in my csproj mission file from net5.0 to net6.0 and replace the key PackageReferences from 5.0.0 to six.0.0. It compiles.

Optionally, I am going to additionally run “dotnet outdated” which is one among my favourite instruments. You may wish to be sure you have a stable check suite and never simply do that with out testing.

dotnet outdated tells me which packages need updating

I see that a few of these are main modifications so I can do a diff of those packages with plenty of instruments, however my favourite is FuGet.org (Thanks Frank!) so I can do a diff between the alpha model of Selenium I am utilizing and the launched see that the RemoteLogs sort is now known as Logs.

I can even replace my Dockerfile and alter variations like this

FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/sdk:6.0 as construct

and

FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/aspnet:6.0 AS runtime

I am going to affirm that these pictures construct and check. I additionally run my checks optionally inside a container in order that’s good.

A few of my websites use Azure DevOps and others use GitHub Actions. Each use YAML (yay) to handle their config, so I am going to replace my UseDotNet process in Azure DevOps YAML to model: “6.0.x”

I am going to commit and begin constructing within the cloud!

Modifications to be dedicated:
(use "git restore --staged <file>..." to unstage)
modified: Dockerfile
modified: azure-pipelines.yml
modified: hanselminutes.core.checks/SeleniumTests.cs
modified: hanselminutes.core.checks/hanselminutes.core.checks.csproj
modified: hanselminutes.core/Startup.cs
modified: hanselminutes.core/hanselminutes-core.csproj

$ git commit -m "improve to .internet 6"

I can even affirm that my Azure App Service is about to .NET 6, however that is solely wanted if I am NOT operating in a Docker Container or if I am NOT utilizing a self-contained executable.

Now I repeat this for my podcast and foremost website and I am now on .NET 6! The weblog (a bigger improve) is subsequent.
