C# Question

Console.Write in .Net Core

I start to learn .Net Core. I want to write a simple 'Hello World' console application.

Unfortunately the

System.Console
is not available initially. This is my code:

using System;

class Program
{
public static void Main()
{
Console.WriteLine("Hello from Mac");
}
}


What package should I install?

FYI, I'm using Mac with VSCode and .net core rc1 update 2.

Answer

Make sure in your project.json system.console is referenced under frameworks:dnxcore50:dependencies

Example project.json:

{
  "version": "1.0.0-*",
  "description": "ConsoleApp1 Console Application",
  "authors": [ "danny" ],
  "tags": [ "" ],
  "projectUrl": "",
  "licenseUrl": "",

  "compilationOptions": {
       "emitEntryPoint": true
  },

  "dependencies": {
  },

  "commands": {
    "ConsoleApp1": "ConsoleApp1"
  },

  "frameworks": {
    "dnx451": { },
    "dnxcore50": {
      "dependencies": {
        "Microsoft.CSharp": "4.0.1-beta-23516",
        "System.Collections": "4.0.11-beta-23516",
        "System.Console": "4.0.0-beta-23516",
        "System.Linq": "4.0.1-beta-23516",
        "System.Threading": "4.0.11-beta-23516"
      }
    }
  }
}
