Let’s improve my primary web site and podcast to .NET 6 LTS


.NET 6 is launched and it is a LTS launch which implies it will be totally and actively supported for the following 3 years. In the event 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 working 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 acquired his occasion of dasBlog working on 6!

OK, let’s examine what’s concerned. Let’s begin with my podcast web site. I’ve acquired the code on GitHub and working 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 wish to drive stick shift generally for smaller tasks.

I will 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Optionally, I will additionally run “dotnet outdated” which is one in every of my favourite instruments. You will wish to be sure to 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dotnet outdated tells me which packages need updating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 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 kind is now referred to as Logs.

I will even 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 activity in Azure DevOps YAML to model: “6.0.x”

I will commit and begin constructing within the cloud!

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

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

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

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