Okay, finally got round to trying this out. I'm using Azure to host Azure Mobile backend that will ultimately provide an Azure SQL database with a mobile client, an api, and a web app. At the moment I'm just playing with the api. (My Xamarin mobile app using Realm for user data and the Realm server hosted on a linux VM in Azure is working great by the way - fantastically simple and easy to use - I'm now wanting to add access to the Realms from the backend).
Problem I'm having is that the template for the Azure backend app is .NET Framework 4.6. When I add the Realm NuGet and try to access my Realm database I get "The PCL build of Realm is being linked which probably means you need to use NuGet or otherwise link a platform-specific Realm.dll to your main application."
I guess this is because the NuGet appears to support PCL and .NET Standard, but not Framework 4.6
I know that Azure backends are really not your thing, but any advice you can give that might help would be appreciated. Is there a .NET Framework 4.6 compatible library, or do you know of any guidance for converting a Framework backend to use .NET Standard?
Do I need to start again with a .NET Standard backend (and will that work) or is there some other workaround?
