ASP.​NET Core in .NET 6 - Update on dotnet watch

This is the second part of the ASP.NET Core on .NET 6 series. In this post, I want to have a look into the updates on dotnet watch. The announcement post from February 17th mentioned that dotnet watch now does dotnet watch run by default.

Actually, this doesn't work in preview 1 because this feature didn't make it to this release by accident:

BTW: This feature isn't mentioned anymore. The team changed the post and didn't add it to preview 2 though.

The idea is to just use dotnet watch without specifying the run command that should be executed after a file is changed. run is now the default command:


This is just a small thing but might save some time.

What's next?

In the next part In going to look into the support for IAsyncDisposable in MVC.
