Publish ASPNET 5 MVC 6 on IIS

Using Visual Studio 2015 Preview CTP6.

  1. Create an ASP .NET 5 New App
  2. Check that it is working outside of IIS.
  3. Once complete, publish the application. In this example, I have selected the location C:\MyPublishFolder
    1. When publishing your application, make sure that you have:
    2. Disabled pre-compilation
    3. Selected kre-clr-win-x64.1.0.0-beta3 OR kre-clr-win-x86.1.0.0-beta3 (See image below)

      Publish Screen shot
      Publish Screen shot
    4. Upon a successful publish, go to C:\MyPublishFolder.You should see the folders approot and wwwroot inside.
    5. Now open the IIS Manager (I am assuming you have the ASP .NET 4.5 feature enabled) with IIS 8.5
    6. Create a new website.
      1. Select the wwwrooot folder as the website’s physical path. In this example, it is C:\MyPublishFolder\wwwroot.
    7. Now check the website it is working

If the precompile option is ticked in the Publish Web Settings window pictured above, then you must

  1. Go to the wwwroot folder of your published web application. It is C:\MyPublishFolder\wwwroot
  2. Locate web.config
  3. Inside the folder of your published application, there is a packages folder inside of the approot folder which is contain a folder named after your application, with a folder for the version underneath. Inside that folder should be a folder named root. In web.config, set the value for the key kre-app-base to the root folder. For reference, see the line of code below. In this example, the application name is TestApplication.
  4. <add key=”kre-app-base” value=”..\approot\packages\ TestApplication \1.0.0\root” /> (See image below)

Error when using HTTP Portable class library & compression

Burela's house-o-blog

I was trying to use the new HTTP Portable class library with the new compression capabilities (as described in this MSDN post).

I created a portable class library that retrieved data, and then used that library in my app. However my app kept throwing this error:
Method not found: ‘Void System.Net.Http.HttpClientHandler.set_AutomaticDecompression(System.Net.DecompressionMethods)’.

After searching for hours, I discovered the issue is that you need to add the portable HTTP client to BOTH your portable class library AND any app that consumes that assembly. I resolved the issue simply by adding the portable HTTP client Nuget package to my app.

(#3) ASP.Net Core + Angular 2 … don’t waste your Razor

some assembly required, batteries not included

When serving up Angular 2 script and views, some people have chosen node.js or ASP.Net core server solutions that pre-render data into the angular views being delivered to the client, other implementations go the other way, adopting a simpler philosophy of just serving ‘flat’ unmodified script and HTML views. A few have gone part way, using webpack to collect bundles of views, styles and code. A few rely on ASP.Net Core to serve data using Web API and generally do not use Razor syntax, Tag Helpers or anything much of ASP.Net Cores’ features.

This series of posts will describe a middle ground, where we’ll leverage as much of ASP.Net Core as we can, give users the responsiveness that comes with Angular – delivering data from Web API and caching views where practical.

In the last step we added Angular, served from flat HTML, and had to browse index.html. Now we switch…

Web API File Uploading (Desktop and Web client)

chsakell's Blog

File uploading is one of the most common tasks all developers have to deal with, at some point of their application development cycle. For example, Web applications (such as social networks) usually require users to upload a profile picture during registration or in the case of desktop ones, users may required to upload private documents.
This post will show you how to upload multipart/form-data files using Web API with both Web and Desktop clients. More particular here’s what we gonna see:

  • Web API File Upload Controller: Create an action for Uploading multipart-form data
  • Web client: Create an AngularJS web client to upload multiple files at once using the Angular File Upload module
  • Desktop client: Create an Windows Form client to upload multiple files using HttpClient

Let’s start:

The Controller

Create a solution named WebApiFileUpload and add a new empty Web Application named WebApiFileUpload.API selecting both the Web…
