To get started with this Boilerplate, here are the available options.

  • Install using the FSH CLI tool. Use this for release versions of the Boilerplate only.
  • Fork the Repository. Use this if you want to always keep your version of the Boilerplate up-to date with the latest changes.

Make sure that your DEV enviroment is setup, Read the Development Environment Guide



Before creating your first fullstackhero solution, you should ensure that your local machine has:

  • .NET 7 You can find the download here.
  • NodeJS (16+) You can find the download here.

After you have installed .NET, you will need to install the fsh console tool.

dotnet tool install --global FSH.CLI
fsh install

This isntall the FSH CLI tools and the associated Templates. You are now ready to create your first FSH project!

FSH .NET WebAPI Boilerplate

Here's how you would create a Solution using the FSH .NET WebAPI Boilerplate.

Simply navigate to a new directory (wherever you want to place your new solution), and open up Command Prompt at the opened directory.

Run the following command. Note that, in this demonstration, I am naming my new solution as FSH.Starter.

fsh api new FSH.Starter


fsh api n FSH.Starter

This will create a new .NET 7 WEBAPI solution for you using the FSH Templates. For further steps and details, Read the Getting Started Guide


To update the tool & templates, run the following commands

dotnet tool update FSH.CLI --global
fsh update
