Run the application on Helios:

  • If you have Visual Studio 2015
    1. Open MusicStore.sln in Visual Studio 2015 and run the individual applications on IIS Express.
  • If you don't have Visual Studio 2015
    1. Open a command prompt and execute cd \src\MusicStore\.
    2. Execute dnu restore.
    3. Execute Helios.cmd to launch the app on IISExpress from command line (Application started at URL http://localhost:5001/).

NOTE: App and tests require Visual Studio 2015 LocalDB on the machine to run.

Run on WebListener/Kestrel:

  • Open a command prompt and cd \src\MusicStore\.
  • [WebListener]:
    1. Run dnx . web (Application started at URL http://localhost:5002/).
  • [Kestrel]:
    1. Run dnx . kestrel (Application started at URL http://localhost:5004/).
  • [CustomHost]:
    1. Run dnx . run (This hosts the app in a console application - Application started at URL http://localhost:5003/).

To run the sample on Mac/Mono:

  • Follow the instructions at the Home repository to install Mono and DNVM on Mac OS X.
  • Open a command prompt and execute cd \src\MusicStore\.
  • Execute dnu restore.
  • Try dnx . kestrel to run the application.

NOTE: Since on Mono SQL client is not available the sample uses an InMemoryStore to run the application. So the changes that you make will not be persisted.
