Ever gone through the painful process of setting up solutions from scratch although most of the features/code seems to be repetitive? fullstackhero addresses this very pain point and offers complete end-to-end solutions/boilerplates to facilitate and ease the process of getting started with web development.

What’s fullStackHero?

fullstackhero is a collection of Boilerplates that are built with Clean Architecture, the latest Packages, and Essential Features that your projects will need to get started with. Using fullstackhero boilerplates, one can easily save more than 200 hours of development and research time and kick start the application development in no time. The Essentials are already done, you just have to worry about writing the business logic. Most importantly, fullstackhero is completely FREE to use!

Getting Started with .NET Web API Boilerplate

Here is how to quickly get started with setting up .NET Web API Boilerplate on your machine in no time.

Open up your Command Prompt / Powershell and run the following command to install the solution template.

dotnet new -i FullStackHero.WebAPI.Boilerplate

This would install the .NET Web API template globally on your machine. Do note that, at the time of writing this documentation, the latest available version is 0.0.6-rc which is also one of the first stable pre-release versions of the package. It is highly likely that there is already a newer version available when you are reading this.

Now that you have installed the template locally on your machine, let’s see how you can start generating complete .NET WebAPI Solutions seamlessly.

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.


Once that is done, your new solution is created for you. As simple as that!

Here are the folders and files created for you.

Blazor Web Assembly Boilerplate

Built with .NET 6.0 and the goodness of MudBlazor Component Library. Incorporates the most essential Packages your projects will ever need. Follows Clean Architecture Principles.

GitHub Repository URL - https://github.com/fullstackhero/blazor-wasm-boilerplate


Similar to the WebAPI Boilerplate, the Blazor project too has a NuGet package that you can install on to your machine to start generating the Blazor Boilerplate with ease.

dotnet new --install FullStackHero.BlazorWebAssembly.Boilerplate

Once installed, you can run the following to generate a new Blazor project.

dotnet new fsh-blazor -o FSH.Blazor

Note that it is vital to run the API Server first. Only then can the Blazor project consume services of the API.

Once both the Blazor and API projects are running, navigate to localhost:5002 to access the Blazor WebAssembly Project. Here is what you will be welcomed with.


You can auto-fill the default username/password & tenant by clicking on the Fill Administrator Credentials button.

Anyways, here are the default login details for your reference.

Once you login, the home page will be loaded.
