>             Project: Thrift
>          Issue Type: Umbrella

>            Reporter: Christian Weiss
>            Priority: Major
> As discussed in THRIFT-4535, it would be great if we could update "lib/csharp" to use
the new "csproj" project system. This will allow us to target multiple platforms and the new
".NET Standard" with a single project.
> It's possible to support pretty much every platform there is with this new project format
(see e.g. [Newtonsoft.Json|]),
however supporting older platforms requires more work as this requires more #if statements
> This means that we have to decide which platforms we want to support!
> Targeting ".NET Standard 2.0" would be the easiest option as this version [covers a
much larger API surface|].
However, this would also mean that people have to use rather recent versions of their platforms
to use it, as .NET Standard 2.0 requires the following minimum versions:
>  * .NET 4.6.1 (adding support for .NET 4.5 is no problem though)
>  * .NET Core 2.0
>  * Mono 5.4
>  * Xamarin.iOS 10.14
>  * Xamarin.Mac 3.8
>  * Xamarin.Android 8.0
>  * UWP 10.0.16299
> I will create a PR that targets .NET Standard 2.0 and .NET 4.5 to show what the new project
files would look like. If the approach is OK for you in general, then I can try to add support
for whatever minimum versions you'd like to support.
