ASP.NET 5 buildpack updates for beta6 support

Share this post:

We just pushed out a new version of the ASP.NET 5 buildpack in Bluemix! The update allows you to run applications using the ASP.NET 5 beta6 release.

There aren’t many differences you’ll notice, like those I highlighted in the last buildpack update announcement, so I’d like to give a few tips for decreasing your application staging times instead:

  • Only target the “dnx451” framework in your project.json files. You don’t need any “dnxcore50” dependencies to be restored as the buildpack currently isn’t using the Core CLR.
  • Don’t include any unnecessary dependencies in your project.json files. My early sample applications included extra servers that went unused because the buildpack was really taking care of running the application for me.
  • Double-check what feeds you’re using in your NuGet.Config files. I reduced mine to one feed which significantly reduced the number of HTTP requests needed to restore my dependencies.

Also checkout the release announcements for a list of breaking ASP.NET 5 changes you may encounter, and of course the updated boilerplates in the Bluemix Labs Catalog.
