Hey, we encourage you to contribute to .Net Core templates project: https://github.com/dotnet/templating in order to put community efforts into a single source project used by everyone in ecosystem. Thanks!
The Nancy project is based on framework's "Hello World" template: Nancy Getting Started: Introduction
The xUnit test project uses xUnit: a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for the .NET Framework
The templates that use client-side libraries are calling the
bower install script to install Bower managed dependencies. You can skip the installation process by passing the
--skip-install option to the generator, e.g.
yo aspnet --skip-install. This should allow for a better experience when
Development has been enabled.
The templates support both
