Lesson 2 - E-shop in ASP.NET Core MVC - Identity, database, and layout

C# .NET ASP.NET ASP.NET Core E-shop E-shop in ASP.NET Core MVC - Identity, database, and layout

In the previous lesson, E-shop in ASP.NET Core MVC - Solution Structure, we explained that larger applications need to be divided into multiple layers, and also prepared the structure of our solution. In today's ASP.NET Core tutorial, we're going to install the necessary packages for our project and put the user and database logic into the data layer. We'll continue by generating a database, including the basic settings. We'll also work on a visually appealing layout for the application.

NuGet package manager

Before we move to the data layer, let's install the necessary packages into this project to avoid errors and make editing the code easier. We'll use the NuGet Package Manager to install the following packages into our project. To do this, we'll use the application menu and choose Tools -> NuGet Package Manager -> Manage NuGet Packages for Solution. Here, we'll choose the Browse tab and download and install the necessary packages:

Install-Package package_name
