Welcome to another Tuesday TNWiki Article Spotlight.
In today’s post, we are going to talk about putting all the pieces together. What I mean is there are a lot of articles on the TechNet Wiki that show you a small portion of something, but today, we are going to look at the big picture. To do this, we can use the TechNet Wiki article Angular 5, ASP.NET Core CRUD For Inventory Management Using EF And WEB API by Syed Shanu.
I always love reading Syed’s posts. His articles are about trying to solve a real-world problem and he documents all the steps using multiple tools. Case in point – the article we are looking at uses Angular 5, ASP.NET Core, Entity Framework and Web API to showcase how to do CRUD operations on an inventory management system. He also sets the bar even higher by tweaking reorder levels and priority status both automatically and manually within the system.
In the article, Syed takes the reader through creating a new project using Entity Framework as a DB interface, and Angular 5 as the GUI, so ASP.NET Core can process the CRUD operations via Web API. The article also has a link to the source code of the demo app.
If you are new to Angular 5 or ASP.NET Core, the article also has a link to the introductory article Getting started with Angular5 and ASP.NET Core.
Syed’s inventory management system article won a silver medal in the Microsoft TechNet Guru Awards: December 2017 under the ASP.NET category.
