Launch .Net Core with VSCode for starters

Image
To use VSCode for .net core you would need Omnisharp extension so that we can debug our application just like as in Visual Studio.

Using the dotnet new command we create a web and an API project
dotnet new webapp appname.web
dotnet new webapi appname.api

Create a solution so that it wraps all the projects in one place
dotnet new sln appname
dotnet sln add appname.web appname.api

After building the Web and the API projects we need to create the launch.json which VScode refers to build and debug the application. For a complete reference on doing these projects consider this great resource.
You can always use VSCode terminal to run these above commands as well, also note you can open multiple terminals the same VSCode instance like this.

Setup the launch.json by clicking on add configuration and select .Net core web app. we will need to add two such configurations one for web and another for web api. For web api you need to launch the browser on running the app…

Here is .NET Core application I was working on which had a similar kind of ask, and I wanted to use VSCode to debug my application.

This is how we do it, first, we need to create a solution so that we keep both the API and Web project in one place

dotnet new sln -n appname
dotnet sln add src/appname/appname.web.csproj
dotnet sln add src/appname/apname.api.csproj

Open "launch.json" and Click on add configuration and add then select

.NET Core Launch (web) 

No go ahead and rename to web or web-api, also add a development URL with a different than web configs the "env" property

"env": {
"ASPNETCORE_ENVIRONMENT": "Development",
"ASPNETCORE_URLS": "https://localhost:5001"…
