Getting Started

1. Clone the latest version of ASP.NET Core Starter Kit on your local machine by running:

$ git clone -o fsharp-starter-kit -b master --single-branch \ MyApp
$ cd MyApp

2. Install project dependencies listed in project.json and package.json files:

$ npm install                   # Install both Node.js and .NET Core dependencies

3. Finally, launch the web app:

$ npm start                     # Compile and lanch the app

The app should become available at http://localhost:5000/

How to Deploy

Before you can deploy your app to Azure App Service, you need to open Web App settings in Azure Portal, go to "Deployment Source", select "Local Git Repository" and hit [OK]. Then copy and paste "Git clone URL" of your Web App into tools/deploy.js file. Then, whenever you need to compile your app into a distributable format and upload that to Windows Azure App Service, simply run:

$ npm run deploy                # Same as running: node tools/deploy --production

How to Update

We work hard on keeping the project up-to-date and adding new features. Down the road, after starting a new web application project based on this boilerplate, you can always fetch and merge the latest changes from this (upstream) repo back into your project by running:

$ git checkout master
$ git fetch aspnet-starter-kit
$ git merge aspnet-starter-kit/master 

Alternatively, pull the latest version of this repository into a separate folder and compare it with your project by using a diff tool such as Beyond Compare.

How to Contribute

Anyone and everyone is welcome to contribute to this project. The best way to start is by checking our open issues, submit a new issues or feature request, participate in discussions, upvote or downvote the issues you like or dislike, send pull requests.
