Not even a week ago, I explained how to create an Aurelia app in Visual Studio. Today, an update to .NET Core provides new templates to speed up your SPA development experience.

What an awesome Valentine's Day gift! (yeah, I need to get out more) ;-)

After JUST posting something about how to write Aurelia applications with Visual Studio, Microsoft shipped three NuGet packages to assist with the development of Single Page Applications (SPAs) which include templates for:

- Angular

- Aurelia

- Knockout

- React

- React with Redux

To actually use these templates in your development environment, you have two choices: command-line or Visual Studio 2017 RC.

When you generate a project, it creates a .csproj file for you along with the project files. If you have Visual Studio 2015, you won't be able to load the .csproj project. You need Visual Studio 2017 RC.

Alternatively, you can use the command line to create these projects and type dotnet run at the command line to view the project in the browser (which is what I did).

Even though I'm not providing any value with this short post, I wanted to spread the word as to how Microsoft is continuing to improve on their development tools by integrating various JavaScript frameworks to assist front-end developers in building their SPA's even quicker.

All of this goodness is located on the Microsoft WebDev Blog
