Previously I posted about what is expected in ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2 and then posted about what’s new in ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2. Some of the important changes from RC1 to RC2 are the introduction of new command line tool named “dotnet” to replace “dnx” and moving towards .NET Platform Standards. And I think we are now getting closer to ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2 release as in last week ASP.NET team released a sample ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2 project. In this post, I will take you through how to download, build and run this sample project. (more…)
ASP.NET Core prefers JSON over XML for configuration and earlier I posted about all different JSON files present in new ASP.NET Core solution. And one of the JSON configuration file is Package.json and it is the place for npm modules. But when you won’t find this file in solution explorer for your ASP.NET Core project, as by default, this file is hidden. In this short post, you will find various way to make this file visible in Solution explorer.
Earlier I posted quick summary of what’s changed in ASP.NET Core and one of the biggest change is Introduction of middleware. If you are coming from ASP.NET background then you should be aware about HTTPHandlers and HTTPModules. Middleware are replacement of these things. It’s a new and cleaner approach to play with HTTP pipeline. Read my post How ASP.NET Core 1.0 Middleware is different from HttpModule.
Along with built-in middleware, there are 2 options to define inline middleware using
app.Run extension methods. And if you are currently working and playing with ASP.NET Core 1.0 then you may find examples of
configure() method of Startup.cs class. Both of them are used for same purpose but they are different. How?
Prior versions of ASP.NET Core 1.0, have custom errors for error handling. With ASP.NET Core 1.0 and MVC, you can do the error handling via Middlwares. HTTP 404 is a very common error which comes when server can’t find the requested resource. In this post, we will see different ways to handle HTTP 404 error in ASP.NET Core 1.0 and MVC.
Tag helpers are one of the new features in ASP.NET Core MVC 1.0 and previously I posted about how to use select tag helper in ASP.NET MVC Core 1.0. Image tag helper is an alternative for
Html.Image. And in this post, we will see how to use image tag helper in ASP.NET Core MVC 1.0.
