Introducing ASP.NET 5 and Web Tooling

Sign in to queue


ASP.NET 5 has been re-imagined from the ground up to provide a faster development experience, best in class performance, full side-by-side support, and cross platform support for Linux and Mac. In this video, Scott Hunter gives an overview of what's new in ASP.NET 5 and provides a short demo of the new tooling inside of Visual Studio 2015

    Great but I still think that your effort could be far more productive if focused on other goals.

    1) cross-platform is great but that's already true for web app (html). Of course, it would be great to be able to host an app on my nas or run an it on a mac and make it looks like it is one ios app. but I never seen any example of that.

    2) the future seems to be the total separation between frontend and backend, even routing can now be easily done client-side.  so there should be more support on SPA apps, web API are amazing but there isn't much support for that (tools for easily testing web api are not easy to find). and I don't think that mixing razor code (which is still server-side code) with client side code and even make it more similar to each other will help, it will just confuse things for me.

    The pace of change is alarming, even by our industry standards.  It is a very exciting time to be a programmer Scott.  I couldn't agree more with your goals: performance, ease of development, cross platform, open source.  But please don't lose sight of the order of those!

    Razor was really anoying, thanks to kick it off.

    Heard of the 80-20 rule? I can get most stuff done with 20% of what you provide. It's all about good architecture and design .

    Is Microsoft jut trying to avoid redundancies ?

    At 3.25, how did you run the application without building/debugging.

    When i tried to run, i tried click the "IIS Express" button or click f5. Then it builds and it takes like 5-10 seconds before i can see the page in my browser. And i have to build every time i wanna test.

    What am i doing wrong here?

    @Assassinbeast: You have to use CTRL+ F5 instead  for the update refresh experience

    @alfkonee:Cool, thanks :)

    Since ASP.NET 2, web pages could be run as "compile on demand" - ie. you edit "MywebPage.aspx.cs" and when you access "MywebPage.aspx" via a web browser, "MywebPage.aspx.cs" is automatically compiled as a .dll file behind the scenes. I'd like to know the fundamental differences between this and the new ASP.NET 5 way of doing things.
