Quick Start

Fanray v1.1 runs on .NET Core 3.1 and SQL Server. Any of the free SQL Server editions, LocalDB, Express, Developer will be sufficient.

Clone the repo then run from either VS2019 or command line.

  • VS2019: open Fanray.sln, make sure Fan.WebApp is the startup project, Ctrl + F5
  • Command line: do the following, then go to https://localhost:5001
cd <sln folder>
dotnet restore
cd src/Core/Fan.WebApp
dotnet run

Database is created for you on app initial launch. Below is the default connection string, to adjust it go to appsettings.json

"ConnectionStrings": {
  "DefaultConnection": "Server=(localdb)\\MSSQLLocalDB;Database=Fanray;Trusted_Connection=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=true"

Note the 404 page is only displayed in Production when an invalid URL is accessed, in Development the developer exception page is shown.
