ASP.NET 5 buildpack updates for beta7 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 beta7 release.

A change you’ll notice is that the buildpack is no longer providing its own web server and your applications are expected to declare one as a dependency instead. For now, that means they should depend on Microsoft.AspNet.Server.Kestrel and have a command named kestrel in a project.json file:

<code>"dependencies": {
"Microsoft.AspNet.Server.Kestrel": "1.0.0-beta7"
"commands": {
"kestrel": "Microsoft.AspNet.Hosting --server Microsoft.AspNet.Server.Kestrel --server.urls http://localhost:5004"

The buildpack will handle using the correct host and port for Bluemix, regardless of what you specify in project.json.
