Get Started with ASP.NET Core 1.1


These instructions are for ASP.NET Core 1.1. Looking for the latest version? See the current version of this tutorial.

  1. Install the .NET Core SDK Installer for SDK 1.0.4 from the .NET Core All Downloads page.

  2. Create a folder for a new .NET Core project.

    On macOS and Linux, open a terminal window. On Windows, open a command prompt.

    mkdir aspnetcoreapp
    cd aspnetcoreapp
  3. If you have installed a later SDK version on your machine, create a global.json file to select the 1.0.4 SDK.

      "sdk": { "version": "1.0.4" }
  4. Create a new .NET Core project.

    dotnet new web
  5. Restore the packages.

    dotnet restore
  6. Run the app.

    The dotnet run command builds the app first if needed.
