Dotnet Restore Command Not Found – Exploring The New DotNet CLI

Aspnetcore 1

It has been a year since I posted Taking Visual Studio Code and ASP.Net 5 For A Spin on which I tried to create a simple ASP.Net 5 web application using the then just released free Visual Studio Code. Microsoft also released in Beta that time the new .net framework based which called DNX which is now known as .Net Core. In this post, I will try again to create simple web application using the new .Net Core.

I will use Yeoman to help me with the scaffolding of a new web application.

Yeoman

After yeoman generated a web application for me, a confirmation message is displayed that the new project is now created and I can do now a “dotnet restore”.

Dotnetrestore yeoman

Going to the new web application directory I issued a command “dotnet restore” but I got a command not found error. I updated my Visual Studio Code just hoping to get an updated version of the framework along with it but to no avail.

Hello “Dotnet” .Net Core 1.0

Microsoft released last June of .Net Core 1.0 and along with it the new Dotnet CLI.

The DotNet CLI is included if you install the .Net Core SDK Installer. There is also a separate installer for .Net Core only.

You can get the installers straight from Github https://github.com/dotnet/cli/ (for the latest builds) or from https://www.microsoft.com/net/core

See all the flavours from the table below I got from the .Net Core Github repo:

Sidenote:
Some hiccups along the way of updating my openSSL and brew. Need to execute “xcode-select —install” command to update. This is somewhat related to the El Capitan macOS that I have on my mac.

Sidenote

After installing the .Net Core with SDK, “dotnet” command is now available. As of today here’s my “dotnet —info”

Noels-MacBook-Pro:~ noelarlante$ dotnet --info

Sidenote: “dotnet restore” still does not work. I’m getting an error related to this question posted on Stackoverflow . I’ll post an update once this has been resolved.

Until next time!

  1. I think that means you either need to install, upgrade, or update symlinks for OpenSSL. (You might also wanna get a spam filter for comments. :))

    How did you resolve the issue with “Command Not Found” ?

    • Noel Arlante says:

      Microsoft updated the instructions to:

      [bash]
      brew update
      brew install openssl
      ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/
      ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libssl.1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/
      [/bash]
