Setup the new cross-platform ASP.NET Core with Visual Studio Code on a Linux machine quickly? It’s a bit tedious to do all the required installation bits, not to mention to figure out the little issues.
Using our new ARM-Template you can setup such Box on Microsoft Azure with a single click on the Deploy-Button (if you have an Azure Account already, if not get one here)!
Then fill the parameters with values
- Run full Ubuntu-Desktop? (installation will take much longer, but you can play Mahjong)
- Resource-Group Name
and click “Create”.
The ARM Template installs:
- Docker (from Docker Extension)
- Ubuntu Desktop with XRDP and xfce4 (Full or Minimal)
- Visual Studio Code
- .NET Core SDK
- NodeJS and NPM v6
- Yeoman with ASP.NET Generator
- C# Extension for Visual Studio Code in Visual Studio Code
Later use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to your machine! Computer:<DNS-Name>.<Location of Resource Group>.cloudapp.azure.com. Enter your credentials in the xrdp login dialog. Make sure “sesman-Xvnc” is selected!
You find Visual Studio Code under Development. Or you can start it from the shell with “code .”. You also may use Yeoman with the preinstalled ASP.NET Generator.
Read more about the ASP.NET Generator at the blog of Scott Hanselman.
Enjoy playing with .NET Core and Visual Studio Code running in Windows Azure
