.net Core Plugin?

Good Morning,

Is it possible to create a .net core plugin for Rhino 7?

If so is there a Visual studio template i can install to set things up? Alternatively how may I set this up manually?

No. You can’t. You can use .NET Standard 2.0, though.

Are there any plans to support this? or are we waiting for .net 5?

I think adopting .NET Core may shake the current infrastructure of Rhino SDK, therefore leading to breaking changes for all kind of plugins. Don’t know how McNeel would tackle that.

Hi @david.birch.uk

RhinoCommon is compiled against .NET framework 4.5, but the Rhino executable usually runs a newer version of the framework.

We are not switching over to .NET core during V7 development and will re-evaluate when we get around to working on V8.

What library are you trying to reference?

Thanks Dale, that makes sense and seems reasonable.
Thankfully I am trying to reference internally developed code.
I’ve switched to .net standard and .net 4.5 as appropriate.
