Creating websites and web applications used to be my day-to-day job (now, luckily; I have a team to assist me). Anyway, this blog post is not about my startup but it’s about something I wish I had when I create web application project. Imagine if I could create a new project that always includes all the “Must-Have” elements in my web project instead of getting the default empty ASP MVC template (from Visual Studio) and then adding those items myself. For example, I love AngularJS & Font-Awesome; I don’t want to install them manually every time I create a new project. Hence, the born of this project template. The source code is available on GitHub – https://github.com/jeeshenlee/BvAspMvcTemplate
Below are the guides on how to install the project template to your Visual Studio.
1. Download BvAspMvcTemplate.zip from https://github.com/jeeshenlee/BvAspMvcTemplate/tree/master/Installer
2. Saved it to VS project templates folder. Mine looks like C:\Users\JeeShen\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Templates\ProjectTemplates
3. Launch Visual Studio > New Project. If done correctly, you can choose to use BvAspMvcTemplate.
Below is a sample project that I created using the project template. And also the website out of the box (not even a single line of code yet!)
Feel free to contribute to this project and send me Pull Request at GitHub. Thanks!
