To create a new project:

  1. Run Visual Studio
  2. Open the Package Manager Console (Visual Studio main menu: Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Package Manager Console)
  3. Create the directory for your new project, for example:
PM> mkdir C:\Users\Valentina.Cupac\source\repos\MyWebShop
  1. Go inside the new directory:
PM> cd C:\Users\Valentina.Cupac\source\repos\MyWebShop
  1. Create the Visual Studio Solution based on the Optivem Template:
PM> dotnet new optivem
  1. Open the solution (Visual Studio main menu: File > Open Project/Solution, selecting the folder and inside it the solution MyWebShop.sln)

  2. Rebuild the solution

  3. Set MyWebShop.Web.RestApi as the StartUp project

  4. Inside MyWebShop.Web.RestApi, open up the file appsettings.Development.json, you can adjust the DefaultConnection to the location where the database should be created

  5. Inside the Package Manager Console, run the command to create the database:

PM> Update-Database
  1. Run the application

  2. Browser opens up https://localhost:44315/api/values

  3. Go to the Swagger page https://localhost:44315/swagger/index.html where you can execute any API calls

  4. Stop Debugging

  5. Open up the Test Explorer (Visual Studio main menu: Test > Windows > Test Explorer)

  6. Rebuild the solution to discover all the tests
