Even at these early development versions of the ASP.NET 5 framework, there are several ways to develop and run DNX projects:
- Visual Studio 2015 with the Microsoft Web Developer Tools
- Visual Studio Code
- Omnisharp project. Allows .NET development with editors Atom, Brackets, Emacs, Sublime Text, Vim, Visual Studio Code as well as with the Yeoman scaffolder.
Recall that a DNX project is cross-platform independently of on what platform it was developed.
Create scaffolds with yeoman.
Testing with DNX
instructions but don’t
run from the command line. Instead, after adding the
test command in
project.json build the solution. In the standard toolbar, look for the button
with the green play symbol, click the arrow at its right to show the dropdown
test. Now start execution without debugging (Ctrl+F5)
As you can see Visual Studio automatically created a Debug profile for you
based in the command created in the
project.json file. The name of the Debug
profile is the same as the name of command. You can see the profiles in the
Project Properties, tab Debug.
Additionally, the Test Explorer should have your tests as of now, you can run from there too.
