Cross Platform CI with CoreRT and AppVeyor
CoreRT is an ahead-of-time (AOT) compiler and runtime for .NET Core. It builds .NET Core applications into a single, small binary that runs without requiring .NET Core to be installed on the system.

Like most developers, I have a pet static site generator I’m working on. As it’s a command line utility that will be distributed to users that most likely won’t have .NET Core installed, I decided to try …continue.
