"ASP.NET Core Template Pack"


Got to love Mads Kristensen, in a dev geek kind way. This guy just knocks out dev productivity tool, extension or resource by the dozen!

He's now spinning out Project Templates (you know how much I love those) for ASP.Net Core!

ASP.NET Core Template Pack

A collection of .NET Core project templates. Requires .NET Core Tooling Preview 2 or later.

See the changelog for changes and roadmap.


  • ASP.NET Core MVC Starter Application
  • Static Website
  • and more to come...


ASP.NET Core MVC Starter Application

This template is conceptually somewhere between the current Empty and Web Application templates. It is great for learning about ASP.NET MVC as well as a clean starting point for creating any type of web application including SPA.


It doesn't include any client-side libraries or tooling, so there is no Bower, npm, Gulp or Bundler. It doesn't hide any files and folder either, so what you see is what you get.

Static Website

This template is for building static websites using the new ASP.NET Core project system with all the benefits it provides. You get:

  • An optional wwwroot folder for output
  • Files on the filesystem shows up automatically in Solution Explorer
  • Managing Bower and npm dependencies
  • Publishing through Visual Studio



Check out the contribution guidelines if you want to contribute to this project.

For cloning and building this project yourself, make sure to install the Extensibility Tools 2015 extension for Visual Studio which enables some features used by this project.

Make sure you keep an eye on the project's repo, as Mads isn't done and continues to add more Templates... https://github.com/ligershark/CoreTemplatePack
