Opening ASP.NET Core Visual studio solution in Visual Studio code

In this blog post, We are going to see how we can open an ASP.NET Core solution in visual studio code.  So what we are waiting for. First, we are going to create an ASP.NET Core web application like below.

ASPNETCoreApplication

Then select web application like below.

ASPNETCoreWebApplication

Now once you created Ok it will create an ASP.NET Core Web Application like below.

SolutionExplorer

Now let’s run that application to make sure that its work fine.

edgeASPNETCoreApplication

Open ASP.NET Core Solution in Visual Studio Code:

For those who don’t know What is Visual Studio code is here is the definition from the Wikipedia.

Visual Studio Code is a source code editor developed by Microsoft for Windows, Linux and macOS. It includes support for debugging, embedded Git control, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets, and code refactoring
It is a cross-platform open source editor for writing code from Microsoft. You can find more information about that from the following links.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_Studio_Code
https://code.visualstudio.com/

Now we are going to see how we can open the same application with Visual Studio code. But before doing that we need to make sure that the computer have .NET Core installed on your machine and Also make sure that Visual Studio Code C# support is there in Visual Studio code. You can find more about that from the following link.

https://code.visualstudio.com/Docs/languages/csharp
https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/runtimes/dotnet

Since Visual Studio Code is not a full fledge IDE(Integrated Development Environment) like Visual Studio. We need to open the folder which contains the solution and source code. You can do that from Visual Studio Code.

OpenFolderInVisualStudioCode

Then select the src folder of your application like below.

SRCFolderApplicationinVisualStudioCode

Once you click on “Select Folder” it will open source code like below.

SourceCodeInVisualStudioCode


Now when you open any CSharp file on the right bottom you will see a text like installing OmniSharp.  OmniSharp is a set of tooling and editor integrations and Libraries that together creates great IntelliSense and  other tooling support for popular editors like Code, Sublime Text, Brackets, Atom,Emacs and Vim etc. You can find more information about that on the following link.

http://www.omnisharp.net/

Once you click on that text you can also see the progress of installation of Omnisharp libraries in output windows like below.

OmniSharpOutputWindowVisualStudioCode

Once it installed it will automatically select the project which you have in solution. If you have multiple projects then you can click on that and it will ask you to select the project for which you need all IntelliSense .

SelectApplicationInVisualStudioCode

That’s it. Now you have most of the experience that you got in Full Visual Studio and full fledge IntelliSense to all the .NET Features.

VisualStudioCodeExperience

Disclaimer: I have tested it on the windows machine and its works perfectly fine. For macOS and Linux I would expect the same. For further information, you can follow a GitHub Issue which is already created by the community. You can find that GitHub issue at the following link.

https://github.com/OmniSharp/omnisharp-vscode/issues/283

That’s it. It’s very easy to use light weight Visual Studio Code for same development experience like Full Fledge Visual Studio.

Angular 1.5 packages for Sublime Text 3

One of my friends was using Sublime text 3 as  editor for the Angular.js application but he was using it without packages so he has to do manually all the things. I suggested him few packages and now he is much more productive than ever. So in the blog post, I’m going to share few tips and packages working with Sublime text.

Installing package on Sublime Text 3:

Sublime Text 3 support packages that make Sublime Text 3 a great choice for any kind of Web Development project. This makes developer’s life easy and developers will be much more productive than ever. Sublime Test does not come with inbuilt package manager but there is a third party package manager called “Package Control”. You can find more information about that on the following location.

 https://packagecontrol.io/

There is instruction provided for installation at the following link.

https://packagecontrol.io/installation

Angular.js 1.5 packages for Sublime text:

JS Hint:
If you have ever work with JavaScript you should be knowing about linter for JavaScript. JS Hint is a JavaScript linter which will look your code and verify that it has proper styling, proper syntax, and error related to JavaScript best practices.

To make sure that this plugin works correctly. You need to install JS Hint installed globally via npm:

After installing that you can create lots of angular boilerplate code very easily. For example, If you want to create an angular controller just type ngcontroller.

Publishing existing applications to Github with Visual Studio 2015

Before some time, I have published a blog post for using Github with Visual studio team explorer.  So with reference to this blog post, one of the users email me that how we can publish the existing applications to Github? So I thought it would be a great idea to write a blog post about it. So in this blog post, We are going to learn how we can publish existing application to Github with visual studio 2015. Visual Studio 2015 comes with Team explorer and when you install the visual studio 2015 there is an option to install the Github extension for visual studio. If you have not installed it then you can also insert separately from the following link.

https://visualstudio.github.com/

How to publish existing applications to Github with Visual Studio 2015:

To demonstrate this we are going to use console application, So I have created a core console application with File-> New project.

Sample-Conole-Application

Once created application, I have added it to the source via right clicking solution explorer and Click on Add Solution to Source control.

add-to-source-control-github-sample-application

It will add the solution to default source control, In my visual studio git is configured as default source control. But if it not there it will ask between Git or Team server. Once you click on add solution to source control it will create a local git repository. Now It’s time to write some code. Here is a sample code that I have written.
using System;

namespace GithubConsoleApp
{
    public class Program
    {
        public static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Console.Write("Github sample application");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}
Now it's time to commit code to Local Git repository with team explorer like following.

commit-changes-in-git

Now once you click sync it will try to sync with the remote repository of GIT since we don’t have the remote repository.

different-service-for-hosting-github-service

Here, there are three options available, Github, Team Services or custom remote repository. Since we are going to use Github so click on GetStarted for GitHub option. It will load following screen.

github-publishing-sample-application

Here in above screenshot, My Github account is already configured otherwise it will ask for your Github Credentials.  Now click on publish it will create a new repository in Github and publish the whole history to GitHub also.

published-app-sample-application

You can see the same thing on Github.com also.

published-application-on-github

That’s it. It’s very easy to use Github tools with Visual Studio 2015. Hope you like it. Stay tuned for more!!.
You can find sample Github repository used in this application at - https://github.com/dotnetjalps/GithubConsoleApp
