Using Couchbase .Net SDK client with ASP.NET 5 MVC6 in VS 2015 RTM

I have upgraded from VS 2015 RC to VS 2015 RTM. Now when I create a new ASP.NET MVC 6 Preview template based application and then add the CouchbaseNetClient via the package manager, it seems that it does not work.

I still can not “Using Couchbase.Configuration.Client” or any other Using declaration. Has anyone else tried this in VS 2015 release?


Error	CS0246	The type or namespace name 'Couchbase' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)	ITConsole.DNX Core 5.0	C:\dev\Demo\ITConsole\src\ITConsole\Controllers\StudyLogController.cs	9

I found a solution. Open project.json and make sure dnx core 5 is not there in “frameworks”, so for example the following is good:

  "frameworks": {
    "dnx451": { }

But the original default value including dnxcore50 prevents building. Any idea why this is?

Good to hear you found a work-around, but I know idea why dnxcore50 won’t build. Looking into it…


As .net core 5 and mono can run on linux, we would like to develop our software’s new version on it and we also would like to use couchbase as db server.

Now, couchbase .net client library doesn’t seem compatible with dnx 5 core. As I find out, version 2.3 will be compatible. Will it be? When will it be released?

I have one more question, will you prepare a identity library compatible with dnx core? when?

thank you.

We don’t yet have a firm date for dnx core, but it will likely be this spring. It’s something we are very much motivated to support, so it likely will happen sooner than later.

Once again, no hard date, but likely after 2.3.0.
