Create a web app with ASP.NET Core MVC on macOS with Visual Studio for Mac

This series of tutorials teaches you the basics of building an ASP.NET Core MVC web app using Visual Studio for Mac.

This tutorial teaches ASP.NET Core MVC web development with controllers and views. Razor Pages is a feature of the ASP.NET Core MVC framework that makes building and testing web UI easier and more productive. You can use Razor pages alongside controllers and views in the same project.

After using Razor pages, many developers prefer it over controllers and views. We recommend you try the Razor Pages tutorial before the MVC/Controller/Views version. The Razor Pages tutorial:

  • Is the preferred approach for new application development.
  • Is easier to follow.
  • Covers more features.
