    Generator - Asp.Net vNext Basic Website Build Status

    A yeoman generator for a basic vNext 'Hello world' website.

    The motivation for this is down to the official generator taking an 'all or nothing' approach to the generation of a vNext website - you can either choose to generate an empty project, or a site that contains everything you need in terms of a fully functioning site, with account support, databases and so on.

    This generator will generate the an empty website - the basics of what you need in order to get a site up and running, with support for static files and optional support for Gulp and Twitter Bootstrap. The rest is up to you.


    $ yo aspnet-basic

    You will be asked for the name of the application to be generated, which affects the C# namespaces.

    You will also be asked if you would like:

    • Support for the Gulp build system
    • Twitter Bootstrap to be included by default



    The following gulp commands are available, provided you have chosen Gulp support when running the generator. This assumes that you have installed Gulp globally:

    • $ gulp Runs the default gulp task
    • $ gulp bootstrap Copies the Bootstrap assets to the wwwroot folder (if you have chosen Bootstrap support when generating the site)


    npm i generator-aspnet-basic
