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


.NET 6 is launched and it is a LTS launch which suggests it’s going to be absolutely and actively supported for the subsequent 3 years. Should you’ve been paused ready for the correct 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 may 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 obtained 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 obtained the code on GitHub and operating regionally 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 will replace my TargetFramework in my csproj challenge file from net5.0 to net6.0 and replace the main PackageReferences from 5.0.0 to six.0.0. It compiles.

Optionally, I will additionally run “dotnet outdated” which is one in all my favourite instruments. You will wish to ensure you have a strong 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dotnet outdated tells me which packages need updating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 adjustments so I can do a diff of those packages with a lot 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 kind is now known as Logs.

I may also replace my Dockerfile and alter variations like this

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


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

I will affirm that these photographs construct and check. I additionally run my exams 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 will replace my UseDotNet process in Azure DevOps YAML to model: “6.0.x”

I will commit and begin constructing within the cloud!

I may also affirm that my Azure App Service is ready 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 major website and I am now on .NET 6! The weblog (a bigger improve) is subsequent.
