Notes from the ASP.NET Community Standup – July 12, 2016
This is the next in a series of blog posts that will cover the topics discussed in the ASP.NET Community Standup. The community standup is a short video-based discussion with some of the leaders of the ASP.NET development teams covering the accomplishments of the team on the new ASP.NET Core framework over the previous week. Within 30 minutes, Scott Hanselman, Damian Edwards, Jon Galloway and an occasional guest or two discuss new features and ask for feedback on important decisions being made by the ASP.NET development teams.
Each week the standup is hosted live on Google Hangouts and the team publishes the recorded video of their discussion to YouTube for later reference. The guys answer your questions LIVE and unfiltered. This is your chance to ask about the why and what of ASP.NET! Join them each Tuesday on live.asp.net where the meeting’s schedule is posted and hosted.
This week’s meeting is below:
npm install -g yo generator-aspnetcore-spa
This will allow you to generate a base-project with the command:
Steve showed us the Angular 2 version of this template, walked through the structure and configuration of the Angular code working with ASP.NET Core. The template’s TypeScript is built and managed with WebPack and Steve showed us the advantages of this toolset combined with ASP.NET Core. Additionally, Steve enabled hot-module reloading within the configuration of the ASP.NET Core application and his application was updated live in the browser as TypeScript code was saved within his application.
Finally, Steve showed us the React-Redux template that was installed and how you can use the redux browser plugin to make debugging much easier with snapshots of your client-side application state made available in your browser.
