Create ASP.NET Core 2.0 Web App

To create an ASP.NET Core 2.0 web application, open VSC and click on Open folder -> and create a new folder or used existing folder to store the new web app.

In the terminal window, I will type the line below to create a new Razor pages web Application

Dotnet new razor

Once the application build Is done, All I have to do to run my Web App Is to run the command below from the folder the application Is stored In.

To view the Web App I will browse to the location listed In run output.

Dotnet run
