dotnet

Dotnet 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

Legacy versions

You can still run these versions with Lando but for all intents and purposes they should be considered deprecated eg YMMV and do not expect a ton of support if you have an issue.

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 the below options are in addition to the build steps and overrides that are available to every service.

services:
  my-service:
    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 eg 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 like

services:
  my-service:
    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 user to use the certs and secure port correctly in their application like as in this article.

Setting a port

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

services:
  my-service:
    type: dotnet
    port: 8888
