I’ve already done some tests with ASP.NET Core to see if it’s a viable option. So far, I’m quite impressed. I’m not sure if it’s because of the fact that I have a great IDE to work with, compared to when I’ve been doing PHP projects, or if I just like the structure, and workflow better. I felt I could get up and running quicker with this, compared to something like Laravel. Getting started with Laravel felt much more overwhelming for some reason.
Anyway, Here’s what I’ve done so far.
- Test ASP.NET Core on Linux, using this guide by Scot Hanselman, as well as the guide in the docs.
- PostgreSQL database connection and migration with EF Core. Used several resources for this, will try to find them when I do the setup for my new project, if decide to use PostgresQL.
- A basic MVC app with a database and some editable content.
All of this was quite easy, considering I’ve never used this framework before.
