How to use this image

This image will run stand-alone Mono console apps.

Create a Dockerfile in your Mono app project

This example Dockerfile will run an executable called TestingConsoleApp.exe.

FROM mono:3.10-onbuild
CMD [ "mono",  "./TestingConsoleApp.exe" ]

Place this file in the root of your app, next to the .sln solution file. Modify the exectuable name to match what you want to run.

This image includes ONBUILD triggers that adds your app source code to /usr/src/app/source, restores NuGet packages and compiles the app, placing the output in /usr/src/app/build.

With the Dockerfile in place, you can build and run a Docker image with your app:

docker build -t my-app .
docker run my-app

You should see any output from your app now.

Image Variants

The mono images come in many flavors, each designed for a specific use case.

mono:

This is the defacto image. If you are unsure about what your needs are, you probably want to use this one. It is designed to be used both as a throw away container (mount your source code and start the container to start your app), as well as the base to build other images off of.

mono:onbuild

This image makes building derivative images easier. For most use cases, creating a Dockerfile in the base of your project directory with the line FROM mono:onbuild will be enough to create a stand-alone image for your project.
