Thought to share new .Net Core 2.1 version features. Its announced now. And it has got some cool features. First of all to update the existing one, you need to have updated Visual Studio 2017 with 15.7 Preview 1 or newer. Once those updates, in place then you can install the utility directly from this page https://www.microsoft.com/net/download/dotnet-core/sdk-2.1.300-preview1.
In this section, I thought to share new changes happened around .Net Core. With the release of ” Version: 1.0.0-preview3-004056“, Microsoft has scrapped the idea of project.json file and .xproj. You can download the updated version from the same link http://dot.net/. Let me quickly show demo around the same.
In this segment, we will talk about Dot Net Watch Tool. Dotnet watch tool is a file watcher for dotnet that restarts the application when changes in the source code are detected. This is actually similar to nodemon, if you are familiar to node js, then this must be familiar to you. If you are using IIS Express then, it actually does this restart for you already. This piece is really helpful if you are running the app in console.
