Project template

Jul 19, 2013 at 11:41 AM
Are there any plans to provide a Visual Studio project template for Katana? Something that could provide UI over selecting middlewares and creating the initial Startup class would be a big driver for adoption, and would indicate strong commitment from Microsoft to the platform.

Something for this has already released in the Visual Studio 2013 Preview, where you can select different authentication middleware to include in a new project and your Startup class: http://www.dotnetcurry.com/ShowArticle.aspx?ID=916

Oh, nice. Any chance that might be extended to include arbitrary middleware from NuGet?

Probably nothing so liberal, but adding middleware from nuget is already an OK experience. That said, the new UI is supposed to be extensible.

I do expect we'll add at least more of our own middleware to the templates as we build them.

Well, the main thing is that it gets people into the ecosystem, aware of OWIN and pipelines, which is the start of something good.
