Templates for F# projects, by the F# community, for use in Visual Studio, Xamarin Studio and other editors

  • Rezip the files under VisualStudio\FsCsMvc4Template\template\FsMvc4VSIX\ProjectTemplates\ASPNET\FsMvc4 into FsMvc4.zip and move up one directory

  • NOTE: when rezipping, make sure you didn't create an extra directory level called 'FsMvc4' in the zip.
