ASP.NET Core with VS Code

Note: ASP.NET Core and DNX (the .NET Execution Environment) on OS X and Linux are in an early Beta/Preview state. We recommend following the ASP.NET Home project on GitHub for the latest information.

ASP.NET Core and DNX

ASP.NET Core/DNX is a lean .NET stack for building modern cloud and web apps that run on OS X, Linux, and Windows. It has been built from the ground up to provide an optimized development framework for apps that are either deployed to the cloud or run on-premises. It consists of modular components with minimal overhead, so you retain flexibility while constructing your solutions.

Installing ASP.NET Core and DNX

Installation for each platform (Windows, OS X and Linux) is slightly different and covered in detail at ASP.NET Getting Started.

Getting Started

If you don't have an existing ASP.NET DNX application, here's a nice tutorial to Create an ASP.NET web app in VS Code. It will walk you through installing prerequisites and scaffolding out a web application.

Next Steps
