Hi guys, does anybody know how to download a MVC project from GitHub and get it to work in Visual Studio?
I'm following a MVC tutorial and these are the various modules of the projects https://github.com/jongalloway/MVA-Introduction-to-ASPNET-MVC and I'd like to get them out of there, on my computer and use them on Visual Studio, but I've really got no idea as there are so many files. Has anybody done something similar before?
thanks guys, I eventually created the account anyway as I may need it in the future and downloaded it. One thing though, when I then open the project in Visual it doesn't compile, and I get like hundreds and hundreds of errors, here are just a bunch of them
Now, surely something went sideways, but literally, all I did was to open the project (module 3, although the module doesn't seem to matter because they all do that).
DaveAmour, you said you've done it, did you have this problem as well by any chance?
OK thanks. Done that but nothing changed really, as in still had hundreds of errors. Then I thought that it may have something to do with the Entity framework - which I am absolutely sure I had installed previously - but I did it again any way (right click on Reference and Manage nuget packages ) and installed it from there. Believe it or not, that worked, so I presume that the Entity Framework has to be installed on a project basis?!
Anyway, it works, altough I noticed that when I restart the project I have this window coming up:
which is a bit weird because I've used razor before. In any case, when I tried to install it, or at least when I looked for it, I realized that I wasn't sure what I was looking for...any idea? And above all, since the app seems to work, do I have to?
