Automated Dependency Updates for Nuget

Renovate supports updating Nuget dependencies.

File Matching

By default, Renovate will check any files matching any of the following regular expressions:

\.(?:cs|fs|vb)proj$
\.(?:props|targets)$
(^|\/)dotnet-tools\.json$
(^|\/)global\.json$

For details on how to extend a manager's fileMatch value, please follow this link.

Supported datasources

This manager supports extracting the following datasources: dotnet, nuget.

Default config

{
  "fileMatch": [
    "\\.(?:cs|fs|vb)proj$",
    "\\.(?:props|targets)$",
    "(^|\\/)dotnet-tools\\.json$",
    "(^|\\/)global\\.json$"
  ]
}

Additional Information

Use packageRules to control the behavior of the NuGet package manager.

The NuGet package manager supports these SDK-style files and formats:

  • .csproj
  • .fsproj
  • .vbproj
  • .props
  • .targets
  • global.json
  • dotnet-tools.json

.NET Core projects are supported by default.

For Renovate to work with .NET Framework projects, you need to update these files so they match the new SDK-style format:

  • .csproj
  • .fsproj
  • .vbproj
  • .props
  • .targets
