How to run ASP.NET 5 beta apps on Everleap

Frank CheungASP.NET 5 is the very latest yes, and it’s pretty cool. But it’s also a significant departure from previous .NET versions. This version introduces a more modular .NET that has been optimized to run in the cloud.

You can read a lot more about it on the various Microsoft sites out there, and it’s still in beta, so expect some things to change. But if you are the curious type and want to run an asp.net 5.0 beta application on Everleap right now, I’m going to show you exactly how to do it. You may be surprised at how easy it is.

The publishing may take a while because you are publishing all of the libraries to the server.

After you have published the site, you will notice a new directory named approot under the site directory.  This directory contains all of the packages.

That’s all there is to it.

As I mentioned, .NET 5 rethinks a lot of the old .NET concepts that we’ve become familiar with. But in the end most of it should be familiar to you.
