Creating a New Solution

You can use the ABP CLI to create a new project using this startup template. Or alternatively, you can directly create this startup template via Suite.

Creating a New Solution via ABP CLI

Firstly, install the ABP CLI if you haven't installed it before:

dotnet tool install -g Volo.Abp.Cli

Then, use the abp new command in an empty folder to create a new solution:

abp new Acme.BookStore -t app-nolayers-pro
  • Acme.BookStore is the solution name, like YourCompany.YourProduct. You can use single-level, two-level or three-level naming.
  • In this example, the -t (or alternatively --template) option specifies the template name.

Specify the UI Framework

This template provides multiple UI frameworks:

  • mvc: ASP.NET Core MVC UI with Razor Pages (default)
  • blazor-server: Blazor Server UI
  • angular: Angular UI
  • none: Without UI (for HTTP API development)

This template doesn't have Blazor WebAssembly UI, because it requires at least 3 projects (server-side, UI and shared library between these two projects). We are recommending using the layered application startup template for Blazor WebAssembly projects.

Use the -u (or --ui) option to specify the UI framework while creating the solution:

abp new Acme.BookStore -t app-nolayers-pro -u angular

This example specifies the UI type (the -u option) as angular. You can also specify mvc, blazor-server or none for the UI type.

Specify the Database Provider

This template supports the following database providers:

  • ef: Entity Framework Core (default)
  • mongodb: MongoDB

Use the -d (or --database-provider) option to specify the database provider while creating the solution:

abp new Acme.BookStore -t app-nolayers-pro -d mongodb

Creating a New Solution via Suite

ABP Suite allows you to create a new ABP solution from UI.
