Installation Notes

  • When creating a new project please wait for all dependencies (“dotnet restore” & “npm install”) to be restored.
    When using VisualStudio this is automatic, check the output window or status bar to know that the package/dependencies restore process is complete before launching your program for the first time.
  • If you get this error: Unable to resolve ‘OpenIddict’, do the below steps to add myget.org to nuget package sources;
    Copy the “NuGet.config” from the project folder to the solution’s folder (i.e. copy to the same folder location as your solutions file) and restart your IDE
    Add myget.org to your package sources in VisualStudio.
    Visual Studio -> Tools -> Options -> NuGet Package Manager -> Package Sources, Add “aspnet-contrib”, this URL “https://www.myget.org/F/aspnet-contrib/api/v3/index.json
  • If you get any other errors, consider running manually the steps to build the project and note where the errors occur.
    Open command prompt and do the below steps:

    1. run ‘dotnet restore’ from the two project folders – Restore nuget packages
    2. run ‘npm install’ from the project with package.json – Restore npm packages
    3. run ‘npm run dev-build’ from the project with package.json – Build webpack vendor packages
    4. Try running the application again – Test to make sure it all works

    *When I say “run from the project folder” I mean run the commands on the command line from those folders
    If any step fails, post the error details on the support forum for the needed assistance.

    Hi Eben,
    Thanks for great post, I ‘m trying to learn Angular for better opportunity. I have gone through your excellent post. But I’m trying to implement it from scratch how should I proceed?
    Query : UpdateUser with “UserEditViewModel” parameter AND UpdateUser with “JsonPatchDocument” in this case when Patch request will be called?

    Hi Dev,
    The Http PATCH API is another way to updating your models. In this case it is not used in the Angular frontend but is an implementation example for when you might want to use it.
    The template uses Http PUT which is a much simpler approach to updating data through a REST API
