Getting Started

This tutorial assumes that you've already purchased an ABP Commercial license and have an active ABP Commercial account.

This document assumes that you prefer to use Blazor WebAssembly as the UI framework and Entity Framework Core as the database provider. For other options, please change the preference on top of this document.

Create a new project

There are two ways of creating a new project: ABP Suite and ABP CLI.

Using the ABP Suite to create a new project

ABP Suite is the recommended way to create new solutions for the ABP Commercial.

Run the ABP Suite with the following command:

abp suite

This command starts the ABP Suite and opens in your default browser:

suite-ui

Click the Create a new solution button and fill the modal form:

suite-create-new-solution-angular

Select the UI framework, Database provider, and other options based on your preferences, then click on the OK button.

For Angular and Blazor WebAssembly UIs, you get a Progressive Web Application (PWA) checkbox option at the bottom of the Create a new solution modal form.

You can use a different level of namespaces, e.g: BookStore, Acme.BookStore or Acme.Retail.BookStore.

Using the ABP CLI to create a new project

Use the new command of the ABP CLI to create a new project:

abp new Acme.BookStore -t app-pro -u blazor --separate-identity-server
  • -t argument specifies the startup template name. app-pro is the startup template that contains the essential ABP Commercial Modules pre-installed and configured for you.

  • --separate-identity-server argument separates the identity server application from the API host application. If not specified, you will have a single endpoint on the server.

You can use a different level of namespaces; e.g: BookStore, Acme.BookStore or Acme.Retail.BookStore.

Theme

Lepton X

Lepton

A modern, mature, responsive UI theme with different style and color options.

Basic theme

A minimalist UI theme with plain Bootstrap colors and styles. Ideal if you will build your own UI theme.

Mobile Development

React Native

You can specify the -m react-native option to create a new application with React Native. This is a basic React Native startup template to develop mobile applications integrated to your ABP-based backends.

See the Getting Started with the React Native document to learn how to configure and run the React Native application.

MAUI

You can specify the -m maui option to create a new application with MAUI. This is a basic MAUI startup template to develop mobile applications integrated into your ABP based backends.

See the Getting Started with the MAUI document to learn how to configure and run the MAUI application.

If you don't need a mobile project in your solution, you can provide the -m none option to the ABP CLI.

ABP CLI commands & options

ABP CLI document covers all of the available commands and options for the ABP CLI. The main difference for the ABP Commercial is the template names. See the ABP Commercial Startup Templates document for other commercial templates.

The solution structure

The solution has a layered structure (based on the Domain Driven Design) and contains unit & integration test projects. See the solution structure document to understand the solution structure in details.
