PupNet Deploy - Publish & Package for .NET


PupNet Deploy is a cross-platform deployment utility which packages your .NET project as a ready-to-ship installation file in a single step. It is not to be confused with the dotnet pack command.

It has been possible to cross-compile console C# applications for sometime now. More recently, the cross-platform Avalonia replacement for WPF allows fully-featured GUI applications to target a range of platforms, including: Linux, Windows, MacOS and Android.

Now, PupNet Deploy allows you to ship your dotnet application as:

  • AppImage for Linux
  • Setup File for Windows
  • Flatpak for Linux
  • Debian Binary Package
  • RPM Binary Package
  • Plain old Zip

Out of the box, PupNet can create AppImages on Linux and Zip files on all platforms. In order to build other deployments however, you must first install the appropriate third-party builder tool against which PupNet will call.
