Project that uses ASPNET CORE as the server with Aurelia as the front end with webpack in TYPESCRIPT.

This is truely a work in progress. I am learning these technologies as I go so there are probably many areas that could easily be improved.

You will obviously need VISUAL STUDIO 2017 and it does need to have entity framework and all extras.. (tick all the options of you are unsure when you are installing it)

Also, ignore the OTHER FILES directory.. these are files that were used for questions on Stackoverflow etc and have nothing to do with the running project.

Setting up the database

NOTE: Part 1 below has already been done -i've already created this file however its just mentioned here to help with the understanding etc. Part 2 does need to be done!

1). To create a migrations.cs file using Enitiy Framework Core 2 you would normally have to do the following if you have your context in another project... From the project directory where your context resides - in this case JobsLedger.DATA - you have to....

create the following migrations.cs file - DONE. (Normally you just need to do this once AND ITS NOT THE SAME FILE AS THE ONE Entity Framework Core 2 creates - I've just named it the same and placed it in the web project -Jobsledger.api (NOTE AGAIN THAT THIS FILE HAS ALREADY BEEN CREATED - just mentioning it here for completeness) - Entity Framework Core 2 uses it). This has to be in the API project - As I mentioned above thats JobsLedger.API

using JobsLedger.DATA;
using Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore;
using Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Design;
using Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration;
using System.IO;

namespace JobsLedger.API
public class DesignTimeDbContextFactory : IDesignTimeDbContextFactory
public JobsLedgerAPIContext CreateDbContext(string[] args)
    IConfigurationRoot configuration = new ConfigurationBuilder()

    var builder = new DbContextOptionsBuilder<JobsLedgerAPIContext>();

    var connectionString = configuration.GetConnectionString("DefaultConnection");


    return new JobsLedgerAPIContext(builder.Options);

2.) (THIS DOES NEED TO BE DONE!!) navigate to the same directory as the dbcontext file resides. In the case its the JobsLedger.DATA folder and in a command line you do the following. (open cmd in the JobsLedger.DATA folder)

RUN THE FOLLOWING: dotnet ef migrations add InitialMigration -s ../JobsLedger.API

dotnet ef database update -s ../JobsLedger.API

"-s" is the startup project.

The Aurelia Front End

This is definitely a work in progress. It works but I am still learning this framework with quite a bit to go. This is how far I have got in a few months part time.

Running this

The Aurelia front end is split into two seperate sections - public and app. public is for your "public website" with a login option... and "app is your "application" although I have a long way to go with that.

To get to your "app" you have log in. username = "admin" and password = "password".

It will load dummy data on the first load.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
