Serenity Application Platform

build version

What is the Serenity Platform

Serenity is an ASP.NET Core / TypeScript application platform designed to simplify and shorten the development of data-centric business applications with a service-based architecture.

It aims to make development easier while reducing maintenance costs by avoiding boiler-plate code, reducing the time spent on repetitive tasks, and applying best software design practices.

Quickstart (Serene)

Premium customers should use the StartSharp template which they can download from the Serenity members area.

Ensure you have the necessary requirements installed.

# Install/Update Serene.Templates package.
> dotnet new install Serene.Templates

# Create a new Serene project.
> dotnet new serene -n MySereneApp

# Navigate into your project folder.
> cd MySereneApp/MySereneApp.Web

# Install NPM packages.
> npm i

# Build and run the project.
> dotnet run

That's it! ✨ You can visit http://localhost:5000 (actual port may vary, check the console after dotnet run) to see your running Serene application.
