Create a webapi

February 12th, 2017

Prerequisite

See Compile Aspnet core 1.1 outside Docker container but run within

Create a controller

Create a file TodoController.cs file in the same folder as HomeController.cs file. In a real application we should probably put it in a folder “api” or similar.

Fill it with the text below (which is a refinement of https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/tutorials/first-web-api ):

[Update:There is now a

1
dotnet new -t webapi

or similar so you don’t have to copypaste the code below. I plan to write about it as soon as I can.]

}
</item>

Compile:

1
dotnet build

And start the web server with the application:

1
dotnet bin/Debug/netcoreapp1.1/MyWs.dll

Call the controller

Start another terminal.

First check what we have.

1
curl localhost:5000/api/Todo

Then check one item.

1
curl localhost:5000/api/Todo/2

Create a new.

1
2
curl --data "Name=Three" localhost:5000/api/Todo/
curl localhost:5000/api/Todo/3

Update an existing according to Stack overflow.

5
curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-X PUT \
--data '"Tva"' \
localhost:5000/api/todo/2
curl localhost:5000/api/Todo/2

Image processing in dotnet core

February 6th, 2017

There is no native image processing lib for dotnet core but someone at Microsoft has been kind enough to list 4 alternatives here.

Compile Aspnet core 1.1 outside Docker container but run within

January 14th, 2017

Prerequisite

OSX

Docker

Dotnet core 1.1

A folder named (e.g.) /Users/yourname/Docker/Dandelion
and a folder named (e.g.) /Users/yourname/Docker/Dandelion/MyWeb

Create the web

In MyWeb run

1
2
3
4
dotnet new -t web
dotnet restore
dotnet build
dotnet publish

Now we have a web site compiled and ready to run with [dotnet run].
You can run the app and then [curl localhost] to find out if it is runnable; but if you got no error message earlier all should be ok.

Create an image

Go to the Dandelion folder.

Create a file Dockerfile and paste into it:

1
2
3
FROM microsoft/dotnet
EXPOSE 80
ENV "ASPNETCORE_URLS=http://+:80"

Then, to create the image run

1
docker build -t yourname/dandelion .

Note that the name must be all small caps.

If you want to check that the image is created just execute [docker images] which should show the new image at the top of the list.

Start the container

Go to the Dandelion folder. (you are probably already standing there)

Execute

1
2
3
4
5
docker run -p 80:80 \
-ti --rm \
-v /Users/yourname/Documents/Docker/Dandelion/MyWeb/bin/Debug/netcoreapp1.1/publish:/MyWeb \
yourname/dandelion \
/bin/bash -c 'cd /MyWeb; dotnet MyWeb.dll'

and your web should start.

Verify result

Either open another console and execute

1
curl localhost

or go to localhost in your web browser.

Create and run an Aspnet core 1.1 web site in Docker container on OSX

January 7th, 2017

Prerequisite:

Docker and Dotnet Core 1.1 should be installed on the host (=OSX).

You have a folder somewhere, for instance /User/yourname/Documents/Docker/mywebapp.

Create the image

In your folder, create the dockerfile

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
FROM microsoft/dotnet
# VOLUME /Documents/Docker/mywebapp
EXPOSE 80
ENV "ASPNETCORE_URLS=http://+:80"
RUN mkdir app
WORKDIR /app
RUN dotnet new -t web
RUN dotnet restore

Then execute

1
docker build -t mynick/myimage .

in a terminal in said folder.

If you now execute

1
docker images

you can se the new image as mynick/myimage.

Create the container and start the web server

In the terminal execute

1
2
3
4
docker run \
-p 80:80 \
-ti --rm mynick/myimage \
/bin/bash -c 'cd /app; dotnet run;'

Behold result

In a terminal execute

1
curl localhost

or in a web browser go to

1
localhost
