When working with Docker, most folks are very familiar with deploying and building Linux-based containers. ASP.NET Core is a web framework that works great on both Windows and Linux, and can run on both the cross-platform .NET Core framework and the classic .NET Framework. Last week, I was asked about how to package that ASP.NET Core application such that it runs on .NET Framework on a Windows-based container with IIS. I took some time on my live-stream show and walked through the process.
I recorded another short video to show the various ways that you can configure an ASP.NET Core application.
In the video, I show how to configure your application with:
- Strongly-typed configuration classes
- environment variables
- environment variables in web.config
Interested in seeing more sample videos like this? I have more ideas and demos that I show at events that I can convert to YouTube videos if there is interest.
“I’m planning to build a new web application in a software as a service (SaaS) model. Which option is better: ASP.NET MVC 5 or ASP.NET Core?”
After my last tip, I heard from Thomas and Shayne asking about alternative techniques for using npm and Gulp with ASP.NET Core. In this video, I explore both of their suggestions. Thanks for the tip guys!
After the initial response to my previous video, I’ve decided to keep with the idea of the series and recorded a video about ScriptBundles and how to use the Node tools with ASP.NET Core. This video is very much inspired by my earlier blog post: “Where Did My ASP.NET Bundles Go in ASP.NET 5?”
