.NET Core 2.0 support by Aspose.Cells libraries

Our clients request support for Linux and since .NET Core 2.0 is in preview already, we’d like to know what the plans are to support it by Aspose.Cells libraries.


Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

My question in contrast with previous questions is specifically regarding netstandard 2.0 which gets most of missing APIs that Aspose depends on (e.g. IDataReader). Did anybody from the dev team run the analysis against the current codebase already? And while it’s not too late provide feedback to Microsoft to include additional API that are missing and are difficult to replace.


Thanks for your clarification and using Aspose.Cells.

If I am not mistaken, you are seeking for .net 2.0 compiled Aspose.Cells.dll. We provide various dlls. One is for .net2.0, others are like for .net3.5 or net4.0 etc.

For example, the following two dlls are compiled in .NET 2.0 and .NET 4.0 frameworks.

Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.5.2 (.NET 2.0) compiled in .NET Framework 2.0.
Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.5.2 (.NET 4.0) compiled in .NET Framework 4.0.

The question was about NetStandard 2.0, not .Net Framework 2.0.


Thanks for considering Aspose APIs.

Thanks for clarification.

Does it mean, Aspose.Cells Product Team should analyze and contact with Microsoft about any missing APIs and request Microsoft to include them in .NET Standard 2.0.

  • CELLSNET-45813 - Support .NET Standard 2.0 for Aspose.Cells

Can you add to the ticket that there is Windows Compatibility pack which adds APIs like System.Drawing to .NET Core 2.0 for Windows, which might allow us to migrate to .NET Core but run on Windows in order for Aspose.Cell to work.
