Subject Re: Support for lib/csharp .NET Framework before 4.5?
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2019 18:18:56 GMT
A .Net Standard library should work with a .NET Core app, a .NET
Framework/Mono app or a Xamarin app. I think it would be best to make
Thrift a .net standard lib exclusively. Given our lack of need for GUI
features it seems we should be easily able to comply with .Net
Standard. Probably should get rid of csharp (and and maybe netcore)
dir and merge everything (into a netstandard dir?). If .Net Framework
4.5 support is important we could do .net Standard 1.0. For testing
netcore seems the right approach as it is likely the choice for cloud
native microservices and offers the most direct impl of the standard.
