At Build 2015, Microsoft has released more tools for .NET developers who own Apple Hardware. I for one love to code in .NET but also enjoy coding Ruby On Rails. In this article, I’m trying to get my first ASP.NET project run on OS X Yosemite.
The first task is to install the latest version of Mono. To do this I am using Homebrew . If you current have Mono version 3 installed, you might need to force uninstall it first.
To check the Mono version, you can run
And to remove it
brew uninstall --force mono
To install Mono you can run
brew install mono
Afterwards you can check the version again with
mono --version and you should see
Mono JIT compiler version 4.0.1 (tarball Mon Apr 27 01:00:48 PDT 2015)
Install DNX (.NET Execution Environment) via DNVM (.NET Version Manager)
brew tap aspnet/dnx brew update brew install dnvm echo "source dnvm.sh" >> ~/.bash_profile source ~/.bash_profile dnvm upgrade
brew install libuv
Making sure you running on latest version of DNX. Run following command to list all DNX versions
In my case, 1.0.0-beta5-11749 is latest update, so I use that:
dnvm use 1.0.0-beta5-11749
Running the samples
We use sample project available on GitHub from https://github.com/aspnet/home
git clone https://github.com/aspnet/home cd Home/samples/latest/HelloMvc dnu restore
You should see a bunch of output from NuGet.
After that run web server command
dnx . kestrel
And you can open Url
Install Visual Studio Code
You can download the .dmg for Visual Studio Code from https://code.visualstudio.com . After installation, you can open the sample directory HelloMvc
System.InvalidOperationException: Unable to resolve project '' from /path/to/directory/. You should run
dnx . kestrelfrom the project directory.
System.InvalidOperationException: No service for type 'Microsoft.Framework.Runtime.IApplicationEnvironment' has been registered. This means you need to update Mono to version 4.
Missing method .ctor in assembly. Check version of your DNX by
