For one, the
Microsoft.AspNetCore.SpaTemplates is shipped with ASP.NET Core 2.0 #948 and does not need to be installed separately. Once you’ve installed the .NET Core 2.0 SDK, you can simply get started with your new project like so:
Create a new project:
dotnet new angular
Set environment to Development:
setx ASPNETCORE_ENVIRONMENT "Development"
Start your dev server:
By default the server starts on port 5000, so browse to http://localhost:5000 to see the output. At this point you have a running ASP.NET Core 2.0 server application with an Angular/Bootstrap frontend. Ready for innovation!
Doing a compare folders produced from a clean
dotnet new angular from ASP.NET Core 2 preview 2 and ASP.NET Core 2 RTM reveals a number of dependencies have received minor updates, including Angular which has been updated to 4.2.5. Some work has also been done to make dev builds faster and fix a couple minor issues.
