.Net Core MVC Installation

Steps to install the Sneat .Net Core MVC on your system🧑‍💻


  1. First of all, make sure you have installed Node (LTS). If Node.js is already installed in your system, make sure the installed version is LTS and jump to step 2.
  2. Once you have npm installed you can run the following command to install and upgrade yarn. If you want to use npm than you can skip this step.
  3. npm install --global yarn
  4. Install the Gulp CLI: Open Terminal/Command Prompt and run the following command and wait until it finishes. If you have already installed Gulp CLI, you can skip this step and jump to step 3.
