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

        As far as i know, Angular is not responsible for creating Database. You will have to fall on .NET Core or Entity Framework as you are using SQL 2017 to accomplish that.

        Please read more from here http://ankitsharmablogs.com/asp-net-core-crud-using-angular-5-and-entity-framework-core/

        NOTE: QuickApp – ASP.NET Core 2.1 + Angular 6 startup project template has it all done for your.
        You don’t have to worry to go through all those configuration and setting. All you need is to understand them.

        You’ll need to update your connection string and then run the ps command update-database.

      To Debug In Chrome.

      1. From Visual Studio, Select Web Browser from the Debug Target dropdown and Click Google Chrome from the sub-menu.
      2. Again, set the debug target as the name of your application.
      3. Start the debug process, which opens chrome.
      4. Press F12 to open chrome developer tools window after the application is started.
      5. Select the Sources Tab and navigate to webpack://.
      6. Double-click the folder without a name. and from there you will see src folder
      7. Navigate to the file you wish to debug and place your breakpoints, and refresh the page .

    Hello Eben,
    This is my first time to try out your quickstart app using VS 2017. I have quick question, when I initial launched the application, I’m expecting the database to be created in my local SQL Server 2016 server, but I cannot see the database. Any steps I missed?

    Super Great Template. tnx !



    1. It’s not using bootstrap v4 as described but v3.
    2. I would use “primeNg” nstead of “ngx-datatable” for tables. it has much more futures.
    3. I think that each component has to hod it’s own folder and subfolders as it’s children components and not on folder for everything: “./ClientApp/src/app/components/controls/”.

    That’s for now…

    Still, I like this template very much !

      We have plans for a react version in the future. But for now I can’t give you a timeline on it.
