I'm evaluating Aspose Total for our corporate document solutions.
I would like to use .NET Core (ASP.NET 5) for these projects, which is being released next month by Microsoft.
So far in my testing, Aspose is not compatible. I can add Aspose.Cells using NuGet, but still get 'missing type' errors for the 'Aspose' and 'Workbook' namespaces. I added a reference to the DLL as recommended by Aspose support (http://www.aspose.com/community/forums/thread/640468/aspose.total-on-asp.net-5-and-.net-core-crossplatform.aspx), but that did not help.
Is there a roadmap for Aspose supporting .Net Core? If so, is there a release candidate ready for me to test? I'm under a strict deadline, and need a document solution fast. If I can't get this working within 2 days, I'll either have to drop down to .Net 4.5 or find another API - I'm not happy with either compromise.
BTW - .NET Core is so very nice. Many Aspose customers are going to want this support.
*** EDIT ***
I evaluated Aspose under the 4.5 framework, and it is most excellent! (I've been using OpenXML SDK for years). Since I'm under such a time crunch for this project, I'll continue to develop this solution under 4.5, but I'm still very interested in the .NET CORE framework and it's promise of platform independence.
