CLI template for Laconic apps

March 01, 2021

It is now much easier to start experimenting with Laconic: I’ve pushed the dotnet new template to NuGet.

First, install the template:

dotnet new -i Laconic.AppTemplate

Now, create a new app:

dotnet new laconicapp -o MyApp

MyApp directory should contain your new app. It’s bare-bones, with just the absolute minimum of files necessary to make it work on iOS and Android.

And, in a friendly attempt to poke a bit of fun, the template reproduces the functionality of the entire MvvmCross intro app. Don’t forget to click on all the “Next” links ;-). MVU is just a much simpler paradigm than MVVM.
