I looked at the GitHub Action (https://github.com/SonarSource/sonarcloud-github-action) for my workflow and the notes are (to me) a little ambiguous. Specifically the following;
Do not use this GitHub action if… You want to analyze a .NET solution: use the SonarCloud Azure DevOps Extension to analyze your code on SonarCloud with Azure Pipelines
Because of the confusing versioning in .Net (.Net Framework, .Net Standard, .Net Core, .Net 5) I’m not sure if this simply means “Don’t use this for C# at all” or “we don’t support Windows .Net 4.x but might support cross platform 5.x”. The use of “solution” confuses me as well, does that mean that a single .csproj file can be built? I doubt it, but I just want to be sure.
The reason I ask is because I’d love to use the Action as I’m not going to commit to Azure Pipelines which I believe they’ll be deprecating in favour of Actions at some point.
I did see another build.yml example for Windows (https://github.com/SonarSource/sonarcloud-github-action-samples/blob/dotnet/.github/workflows/build.yml) but I’d like to use an Ubuntu image if possible to keep the build sprightly and cross platform.
My questions boil down to;
Does the GitHub Action support any .Net flavour? If not, is there the possibility in future of it supporting .Net 5 as that is cross platform? Happy to put some effort in here but I may be of limited use.
Thanks for reading!
