Application Architecture Diagram

.NET Podcast Application Diagram


For this sample application, we build an app to listen all your favorite .NET podcasts for all the ecosystems: Web, Android, iOS, macOS and Windows. You can find the different apps separated by folders in this repo:

  • Mobile & Desktop: Native .NET MAUI Application for iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows
  • Website: Blazor WebAssembly app and ASP.NET Core Razor Marketing website
  • Backend API: ASP.NET Core Web APIs & Minimal APIs, ingestion worker, and podcast update worker
  • Blazor Hybrid App: Sample hybrid application of .NET MAUI with Blazor.

Full Deployment with GitHub Actions

dotnet-podcasts repo is configured to deploy all services and websites automatically to Azure using GitHub Actions. Follow the detailed guidelines to setup GitHub Actions on your fork.

Local Deployment Quickstart

The easiest way to get started is to build and run the .NET Podcasts app service, database, and storage using Docker.

  1. First install Docker Desktop
  2. Clone the repository and navigate to the root directory in a terminal
  3. Run the following docker command (this may take some time to pull images, build, and deploy locally)
docker-compose up
  • For Apple arm64-based system:
docker-compose -f docker-compose.arm64.yml -f docker-compose.override.yml up

This will deploy and start all services required to run the web, mobile, and desktop apps. The Web API will run on localhost:5000 and the SignalR Hub for listen together will run on localhost:5001.

Web, Mobile, & Desktop

The apps are configured to speak to localhost on the correct ports for each service. Simply open the Web solution or the .NET MAUI solution and run the app.

Ensure that you have the following services running in Docker (podcast.api, listentogether.hub, podcast.updater.worker, podcast.db, storage):

Configured Docker services

Backend Services

Open the Services solution and pick a service to run locally such as the Podcast.API.

Ensure that the following services are running in Docker, note that you only need the podcast.db and storage:

Configured Docker services

Local Deployment with Visual Studio

  1. First install Docker Desktop
  2. Clone the repository and navigate to the root directory in a terminal
  3. Open the solution NetPodcast.sln, set the start project to docker-compose and hit F5. To optimize debugging while running all services, please refer to Launch a subset of Compose services documentation.
  4. By default, the Podcast.Api's swagger endpoint will be launched. Navigate to localhost:5002 for the web application. If you see any errors, wait for a while and refresh the page.
