  • Consistent versioning of assemblies and packages


In your project's *.csproj file:

  • Set <VersionPrefix /> to the {Major}.{Minor} version of your project
  • Add the reference: dotnet add package NetChris.Build.MSBuild
  • Alternately, directly add the PackageReference in your project, using the appropriate major and minor versions:
<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk">


    <PackageReference Include="NetChris.Build.MSBuild" Version="0.3.*">
      <IncludeAssets>runtime; build; native; contentfiles; analyzers; buildtransitive</IncludeAssets>

This relies on this blurb from "Include MSBuild props and targets in a package":

You might want to add custom build targets or properties in projects that consume your package, such as running a custom tool or process during build. You do this by placing files in the form <package_id>.targets or <package_id>.props [...] within the \build folder of the project.

Variables during build

There are a few properties you can set to vary the versioning. These values can also be supplied through environment variables. They are primarily of use in CI/CD scenarios.

Property Use Recommended source
SemVerPatch The SemVer patch version. Pipeline ID
SemVerPrerelease The SemVer pre-release version, if any Assuming Pipeline ID for the patch version, just a simple "prerelease" static string.
AssemblyVersionBuild The build number to use for the assembly (and file) [version] Pipeline IID (i.e. project-specific pipeline ID) to keep ⇐ UInt16.MaxValue - 1
AssemblyVersionRevision The revision number to use for the assembly (and file) version For now, hard-set to 0
