dotnet-msbuild - Man Page

Builds a project and all of its dependencies.

dotnet msbuild

Synopsis

dotnet msbuild <msbuild_arguments> [-h]

Description

The dotnet msbuild command allows access to a fully functional MSBuild.

The command has the exact same capabilities as the existing MSBuild command-line client for SDK-style project only. The options are all the same. For more information about the available options, see the MSBuild Command-Line Reference.

The dotnet build command is equivalent to dotnet msbuild -restore -target:Build. dotnet build is more commonly used for building projects, but dotnet msbuild gives you more control. For example, if you have a specific target you want to run (without running the build target), you probably want to use dotnet msbuild.
