Bolero Simple Template

Build status

This template can be used as a base to create a Bolero application.

To learn more, you can check the documentation.


To get started, you need the following installed:

  • .NET SDK 5.0. Download it here.

Creating a project based on this template

To create a project based on this template, first install the template to your local dotnet:

dotnet new -i Bolero.Templates

Then, you can create a project like so:

dotnet new bolero-app -o YourAppName

This will create a project in a new folder named YourAppName.

Template options

You can use the following options to customize the project being created:

  • Project content options:

    • --minimal, -m:

      If true, the created project is a minimal application skeleton with empty content.

      If false (the default), the created project includes Bolero features such as routed pages, HTML templates and remoting.

    • --server, -s:

      If true (the default), the solution includes a Server project, which is an ASP.NET Core server that hosts the application.

      If false, the solution only contains the Client project that is compiled to WebAssembly.

    • --hostpage, -hp:

      Determines how the server-side HTML page content is written. Can be one of:

      • bolero: using Bolero.Html functions.

      • razor: using a dynamically-compiled Razor page.

      • html: using a plain .html file.

      This is ignored if server=false.

    • --html, -ht:

      If true (the default), use HTML templates.

      If false, use F# functions for HTML content.

      This is ignored if minimal=true, because the minimal project doesn't contain any HTML content.

    • --hotreload, -hr:

      Enable hot reloading for HTML templates.

      The default is true.

      This is ignored if server=false, because hot reloading requires a server side.

    • --pwa, -pwa:

      Create the client side as a progressive web app.

  • Package management options:

    • --nightly, -ni:

      Reference the nightly release of Bolero.

    • --paket, -p:

      Use Paket for package management.

Using this template

Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio is recommended to edit this project.

To compile the project, you can run:

dotnet build

To run it:

dotnet run -p src/YourAppName.Server

# Or if you created the project with --server=false:
dotnet run -p src/YourAppName.Client

Project structure

  • src/YourAppName.Client is the project that gets compiled to WebAssembly, and contains your client-side code.

    • Startup.fs sets up Blazor to get the application started.

    • Main.fs contains the main body of the page.

  • src/YourAppName.Server is the host ASP.NET Core application, and contains your server-side code.
