C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 Blueprints

By: Dirk Strauss, Jas Rademeyer

Overview of this book

.NET Core is a general purpose, modular, cross-platform, and open source implementation of .NET. With the latest release of .NET Core, many more APIs are expected to show up, which will make APIs consistent across .Net Framework, .NET Core, and Xamarin. This step-by-step guide will teach you the essential .NET Core and C# concepts with the help of real-world projects. The book starts with a brief introduction to the latest features of C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 before moving on to explain how C# 7 can be implemented using the object-oriented paradigm. You'll learn to work with relational data using Entity Framework and see how to use ASP.NET Core practically. This book will show you how .NET Core allows the creations of cross-platform applications. You'll also learn about SignalR to add real-time functionality to your application. Then you will see how to use MongoDB and how to implement MongoDB into your applications. You'll learn about serverless computing and OAuth concepts, along with running ASP.NET Core applications with Docker Compose. This project-based guide uses practical applications to demonstrate these concepts. By the end of the book, you'll be proficient in developing applications using .NET Core 2.0.

Solution overview

Now you should have a complete, buildable solution. Let's have a quick look at the solution in Solution Explorer:

Starting at the top, let me list the changes we've made to our Chapter5 project:

  1. The following is the SignalR Asp.NET Core library we added through NuGet:

Dependencies/NuGet/Microsoft.AspNetCore.SignalR (1.0.0-alpha2-final)

  1. We copied this JavaScript library manually from the node_modules folder after we downloaded it using npm:


  1.  Our client page with HTML markup, styling and JavaScript all in one:  one.wwwroot/index.html



If you are going to use this application as a base and extend it, I recommend moving the JavaScript code to a separate .js file. It is easier to manage and is another good coding standard to follow.

  1. Chat.cs: This is our chat server code—or rather any custom Task methods that we declared
  2. Startup.cs: This file is standard in an Asp.NET Code web application, but we changed the configuration to...
