Description

Started in April 2017, NUKE is a free, open-source build automation system for C#/.NET. It runs on any platform (.NET Core, .NET Framework, Mono) and integrates natively with all IDEs (VisualStudio, JetBrains Rider, etc.). While builds are bootstrapped with conventional scripts (build.ps1 or build.sh), their actual implementation is based on simple C# console applications. This allows IDE features like code-completion, refactorings and debugging to be used as usual. One further step is that build steps are actual symbols (expression-bodied properties) and therefore provide superior navigation and type-safety.

Description

NUKE is the best open-source build automation system for C#/.NET that runs cross-platform on .NET Core, .NET Framework, and Mono. While builds are bootstrapped with conventional Bash or PowerShell scripts, their actual implementation resides in simple C# console applications. This approach unleashes the power of the type system and natively provides IDE features like code-completion, refactorings, and debugging. A custom global tool and several IDE extensions further improve how build projects are setup, authored and executed. A revolutionary code-generation approach ensures scalable integration of third-party tools like MSBuild or dotnet CLI.

Here is a short list of some most-loved features:

Example

Continuous Integration

NUKE builds and tests itself on several different CI servers, which helps ensuring a working integration with those systems. At the same time, the individual configuration files serve as example for the generation experience:

Build Server Status Platform Configuration
AppVeyor AppVeyor Win / Ubuntu appveyor.yml
Azure Pipelines Azure Pipelines Win / Linux / MacOS azure-pipelines.yml
Bitrise Bitrise Ubuntu N/A
GitHub Actions GitHub Actions Win / Ubuntu / MacOS continuous.yml
TeamCity TeamCity Win settings.kts
Travis CI Travis CI MacOS / Ubuntu .travis.yml
