Aurelia Web API Example

This is an example of an Aurelia web application backed by an ASP.NET 5 Web API web service.

The client and server build tasks are handled by gulp.

This example assumes you are familiar with node.js, npm, and gulp.

Recommendation:

If you're using npm 2.x, I recommend upgrading npm. If you don't want to upgrade your system npm, install a version manager.

npm install nave -g
nave use 4.2.2
npm install npm -g
npm --version # should be 3.x

If you don't install npm 3, projects with many npm dependencies will result in lots of nested folders and excessive disk IO.

Install

Download and install ASP.NET 5 from https://get.asp.net/.

Install 1.0.0-rc1-final:

dnvm install 1.0.0-rc1-final
dnvm use 1.0.0-rc1-final

Install dependencies:

npm install
npm install gulp jspm -g
jspm install

Setup the database

cd src/AureliaWebApi
dnx ef database update -e Production

Gulp build tasks, relies on settings in parent directory

  • src

Location of the client and server source code

Folders related to Web API

  • src/client

Base folder for client-related source and tests

  • src/client/app

The client source: Aurelia written in ES6

  • src/client/specs

Unit and end-to-end tests for Aurelia

  • test

Aggregate folder for all server-side tests

Configuration

This takes the AddUserSecrets extension from Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration and calls it on the builder object. There's a discrepancy between rc1-final packages, so PathHelper.cs and ConfigurationExtensions.cs were taken directly from source.

User secrets can be added with the user-secret helper:

dnu commands install Microsoft.Framework.SecretManager

Then, you can set a secret:

user-secret set ApiSecret:Key keyboardcat

This secret is stored unencrypted in secrets.json in your home directory (see ConfigurationExtensions and PathHelper for location). The benefit here is the secret won't accidentally be committed to source.

see: https://github.com/aspnet/Home/wiki/DNX-Secret-Configuration see: http://www.abhijainsblog.com/2015/06/using-secretmanager-in-aspnet5.html

Database

Code First Blog/Post models (taken from http://ef.readthedocs.org/en/latest/getting-started/osx.html).

To run migrations:

dnx ef database update

To create additional migrations, run:

dnx ef migrations add MigrationName

Then, run the update command again.

Main build tasks should be pretty self-explanatory.

Run gulp and everything gets built, tested, and staged for testing in browser sync.

By default, gulp dotnet-run will run as a Production environment. You can run in Development by passing the environment variable:

ASPNET_ENV=Development gulp dotnet-run

The development environment will use an in-memory database while the production environment persists to a local SQLite database file.

TODO

  • Rethink jspm_packages to avoid copying from client/app to wwwroot during build.
  • Iterate all tests and execute dnx test.
  • Setup karma and end-to-end testing
  • Work up a client application in Aurelia
  • Upgrade everything to include dotnet50
You can’t perform that action at this time.
