Port Octopus to .NET Core
Moving Octopus Server/Tentacle/Calamari to .NET Core would extend the reach of Octopus Server to other platforms.
- List item 1
- List item 2
We have put this task on hold as the .NET Core libraries do not yet have all the bits we need.
We have however ported the following to .NET Core:
- Most of Calamari
This means these tools can be used on Linux.
We have also built https://www.icanhasdot.net/
We may pick this item up in the future, one the platform matures.
Could it be time to revisit this now that Core 2.0 has been released (and Visual Studio for Mac is stable). It could be an opportune time to re-capture all the folks that only left .NET due to the Window's dependency and are now returning and deploying .NET Core to linux and docker setups.

In addition, porting calamari to .NET Core would enable to get rid of mono on Linux-like targets (and it would be great)

Run octopus server on Linux would be great - no reason it could not!

Porting Tentacle/Calamari to .NET Core would enable deployments on Windows Nano Server also.
