ghūl 'dotnet new' templates

CI/CD NuGet version (ghul.templates) Release Release Date Issues License ghūl

These are 'dotnet new' templates for quick-starting a .NET 8.0 console application or class library project written in the ghūl programming language.

Note that these templates do not include things like GitHub Actions workflows, development container config, Dependabot config, unit tests, etc. For a GitHub repository template that does include all those things, see the ghūl repository template repo.

Quick start

$ dotnet new --install ghul.templates
The following template packages will be installed:

Success: ghul.templates::0.0.12 installed the following templates:
Template Name               Short Name     Language  Tags   
--------------------------  -------------  --------  -------
ghūl class library package  ghul-classlib  ghūl      Console
ghūl console application    ghul-console   ghūl      Console

$ mkdir my-console-project
$ cd my-console-project
$ dotnet new ghul-console
The template "ghūl console application" was created successfully.

$ dotnet run
Hello world!


These templates create skeleton ghūl programming language projects that can be built on any host that supports the .NET 8.0 SDK

You'll need to either install the .NET 8.0 SDK, or use a container that includes it like the ghūl development image or a recent Microsoft .NET SDK image

  • Visual Studio Code
  • The ghūl language Visual Studio Code extension, which will give you rich language support including:
    • syntax highlighting
    • error highlighting as you type
    • code snippets
    • symbol information on hover
    • intelligent code completion
    • function signature help
    • find uses
    • go to/peek definition
    • go to symbol in file
    • go to symbol in workspace

Installing the templates

The templates are distributed as a NuGet package containing two .NET templates. Before you can use them, you need to install the template package:

$ dotnet new --install ghul.templates

Instantiating the templates

Start by creating a new folder for your project and cd into it

$ mkdir example
$ cd example

Then use dotnet new to initialize a new instance of either template in your project folder:

$ dotnet new ghul-console


$ dotnet new ghul-classlib

This will create a .ghulproj MSBuild project file, a .ghul source file and some other supporting files:

$ find


Building your ghūl application or package

ghūl applications are standard .NET applications using familiar MSBuild projects and .NET SDK commands such as dotnet build and dotnet pack.

Building your project

Just use the normal dotnet commands:

$ dotnet build
$ dotnet pack

And, for the console application template:

$ dotnet run

the ghūl compiler tool

The ghūl compiler is packaged as a .NET tool and can be installed either locally or globally.

Local tool install

These templates include a local tool manifest in the .config folder which includes the compiler. This means the compiler tool will be restored automatically when you build your application, however you can also restore it manually with:

$ dotnet tool restore

To run the compiler local tool directly from the command line, use:

$ dotnet tool run ghul-compiler
ghūl v0.2.154

Global tool install

If you prefer to install the compiler globally, you can run:

$ dotnet tool install --global ghul.compiler

This will install the compiler globally allowing you to run it from any folder with

$ ghul-compiler

Note: if you do install the compiler globally, you will also need to change the GhulCompiler property in your .ghulproj file to reference it:

  • net8.0

    • No dependencies.
