Uninstalling .Net Core on Mac

If you own a Mac computer and decided to test the new .net Core framework keep in mind that you will need a script to do the uninstallation. This is the script:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Copyright (c) .NET Foundation and contributors. All rights reserved.
# Licensed under the MIT license. See LICENSE file in the project root for full license information.

DIR=”$( cd “$( dirname “${BASH_SOURCE[0]}” )” && pwd )”

if [ $current_user != “root” ]; then
echo “$(basename “$0″) uninstallation script requires superuser privileges to run”
exit 1

# this is the common suffix for all the dotnet pkgs

installed_pkgs=($(pkgutil –pkgs | grep $dotnet_pkg_name_suffix))

for i in “${installed_pkgs[@]}”
echo “Removing dotnet component – \”$i\””
pkgutil –force –forget “$i”

[ “$?” -ne 0 ] && echo “Failed to remove dotnet packages.” && exit 1

echo “Deleting install root – $dotnet_install_root”
rm -r “$dotnet_install_root”
rm “$dotnet_path_file”

echo “dotnet packages removal succeeded.”
exit 0
