    Vue.js helpers in cshtml?

    Is it not possible to integrate Vue.js into a MVC project in a way, such that you can use all the Vue.js features directly in a .cshtml view? Or do you have to load it in with a template?

    Running Vue in development mode

    I'm encountering a very odd message after deploying, You are running Vue in development mode.

    You can see my deployed site at http://vuejs-dotnet.gear.host/

    I see you already have defined the plugin necessary to indicate production mode in the webpack.config.vendor.js file. Do you know what is going on? I can't seem to get rid of this message in production, all files have been minified and optimized, your help would be appreciated.

  • dotnet new template

    dotnet new template

    I've generated the dotnet new template of the current repo. (re #28)

    • The whole repo had to be put into a /contents dir
    • a .template.config dir was created with the template.json file which configures the dotnet new template
    • changed the title on the menu as the template string replace changes it to the project name
    • a nuspec file was added to generate the nuget

    I've also uploaded a nuget at https://www.nuget.org/packages/aspnetcore-vuejs/1.0.0 (the ownership can be changed if you decide you like this)

    This can be tested via dotnet new -i aspnetcore-vuejs

    dotnet new is not installing the latest version of this starter project referencing aspnet core 2.1

    per your readme, I ran this command to install this template: dotnet new -i aspnetcore-vuejs

    when i created a new template from that, i noticed that the aspnet core version was still 2.0.3 and not 2.1.x. Did you deploy any of the latest changes so the dotnet new command pulls the newer version.

    This is what dotnet new installed Installing aspnetcore-vuejs 1.0.1.

    Blank Page on start up

    Just to expand upon bug #91

    I have tried npm run build, npm installand it does not matter, every time that I attempt to start the Application in .NET Core it will fail to load, main js, vendor css, and vendor js.

    I think that the starter app is fantastic considering that there are not a lot of other vue spa resources out there for .NET Core, but this makes it very difficult to work with when everytime you run the app it fails.

    Is there any solution to this?

    I have attached a picture of when i do an npm install Capture

    Here is a pic of what it looks like when an npm run build is run Capture2
