Noda Time is developed on Visual Studio 2017. All versions of Visual Studio 2017, including the community edition, should be able to build Noda Time, so long as you also have the .NET Core SDK installed.
To fetch the source code, just clone the GitHub repository:
> git clone https://github.com/nodatime/nodatime.git
To build everything under Visual Studio, simply open the
To build with just the .NET Core SDK, run
> dotnet restore src\NodaTime-All.sln > dotnet build src\NodaTime-All.sln
The tests are currently console application projects until NUnit supports
dotnet test properly. Simply run the tests with the desired framework.
(See the project file for supported frameworks for testing.)
> cd src\NodaTime.Test > dotnet run -f net451 > dotnet run -f netcoreapp1.0
Building under other operating systems is similar, requiring the .NET Core SDK to be installed,
but unless you have installed suitable support for
net45 etc, you won't be able to just build the solution
$ dotnet restore src/NodaTime-All.sln $ dotnet build src/NodaTime/*.csproj -f netstandard1.3 $ dotnet build src/NodaTime.Testing/NodaTime.Testing.csproj -f netstandard1.3 $ dotnet build src/NodaTime.Test/NodaTime.Test.csproj -f netcoreapp1.0
