Renovate supports upgrading dependencies in .csproj files.

Version Support

Only SDK-style .csproj files are currently supported. By default, this includes:

  • .NET Core 1.0 and above
  • .NET Standard class libraries
  • Any .csproj in the SDK-style syntax

To convert your .NET Framework .csproj into an SDK-style project, one can follow the following guide.

How It Works

  1. Renovate will search each repository for any files with a .csproj extension.
  2. Existing dependencies will be extracted from <PackageReference> tags
  3. Renovate will look up the latest version on to determine if any upgrades are available
  4. If the source package includes a GitHub URL as its source, and has either a "changelog" file or uses GitHub releases, then Release Notes for each version will be embedded in the generated PR.

Future work

Contributions and/or feature requests are welcome to support more patterns or additional use cases.
