Renovate supports upgrading dependencies in .csproj files.

Version Support

Only SDK-style .csproj files are currently supported. By default, this includes:

  • .NET Core 1.0 and above
  • .NET Standard class libraries
  • Any .csproj in the SDK-style syntax

To convert your .NET Framework .csproj into an SDK-style project, one can follow the following guide.

How It Works

  1. Renovate will search each repository for any files with a .csproj extension.
  2. Existing dependencies will be extracted from <PackageReference> tags
  3. Renovate will look up the latest version on (or on alternate feeds) to determine if any upgrades are available
  4. If the source package includes a GitHub URL as its source, and has either a "changelog" file or uses GitHub releases, then Release Notes for each version will be embedded in the generated PR.

Alternate feeds

Renovate by default performs all lookups on, but it also supports alternative nuget feeds. Alternative feeds can be specified in configuration file:

"nuget": {
  "registryUrls": [

If this example we defined 3 nuget feeds. Packages resolving will process feeds consequentially. It means that if package will be resolved in second feed renovate won't look in last one.

Authenticated feeds

Credentials for authenticated/private feeds can be provided via host rules in the configuration options (file or command line parameter).

"hostRules": [
    "hostType": "nuget",
    "endpoint": "",
    "username": "root",
    "password": "p4$$w0rd"

Please note that at the moment only Basic HTTP authentication (via username and password) is supported.

Future work

Contributions and/or feature requests are welcome to support more patterns or additional use cases.
