AbpHelper is a tool that help you with developing Abp vNext applications.

Make sure to backup your source files before using it!

Getting Started

  1. Install AbpHelper CLI tool

    dotnet tool install EasyAbp.AbpHelper -g

    If you prefer GUI, there is also a tool with a fancy UI: AbpHelper.GUI

  2. If you have previously installed it, update it with the following command:

    dotnet tool update EasyAbp.AbpHelper -g

  3. Use ABP CLI to create an ABP application

    abp new MyToDo

  4. Create an entity

    public class Todo : FullAuditedEntity<Guid>
        public string Content { get; set; }
        public bool Done { get; set; }
  5. Run AbpHelper

    abphelper generate crud Todo -d C:\MyTodo

    • generate crud is a sub command to generate CRUD files
    • Todo specified the entity name we created earlier
    • -d specified the root directory of the ABP project, which is created by the ABP CLI

    AbpHelper will generate all the CRUD stuffs , even include adding migration and database updating!

  6. Run the DbMigrator to seed the database

  7. Startup your application

  8. Login with the default admin account, and see the magic happens!


    If you don't see the TODO menu, check your permissions and make sure the TODO related permissions are granted
