Download and Install .NET 6.x

Go here to download the correct .NET 6.x SDK depending on your OS (Windows, macOS or Linux) and then install the same.

**Create a project and run **

Open a terminal window and run below command to verify the version.

sunilvijendra> dotnet --list-sdks
6.0.300 [/usr/local/share/dotnet/sdk]

Now running below command will show the project templates which can be used to create the project.

dotnet new --list

I chose 'webapp' which creates and basic ASP.NET Core WebApp. (Note: Use the short name in the following command.

And -o option is the output location and below command will create a directory named "helloworld" in the current directory and create all required files from the template.

dotnet new webapp -o helloworld

Now change to the newly created directory and run the app.

cd helloworld
dotnet run

The output will show the URL where the app is run.

dotnet run
info: Microsoft.Hosting.Lifetime[14]
      Now listening on: https://localhost:7005
info: Microsoft.Hosting.Lifetime[14]
      Now listening on: http://localhost:5111
info: Microsoft.Hosting.Lifetime[0]
      Application started. Press Ctrl+C to shut down.
info: Microsoft.Hosting.Lifetime[0]
      Hosting environment: Development
info: Microsoft.Hosting.Lifetime[0]
      Content root path: /Users/sunilvijendra/TechProjects/AzureBeckonsContainers/helloworld/

Now open a browser and check to see if the basic page is up and running (in the above case: localhost:5111). It should look like below:


If you are seeing the above page, then pat you back! You just built your first .NET 6.0 WebApp!!
