If you’re using Visual Studio Code or another text editor to work on your ASP.NET Core web app then you’ll want to know how to add (and start using) MVC.

We’ve recently adopted the excellent S#arp Architecture for our projects. I highly recommend taking a look at the project site.
On Friday I created a simple WCF service using S#arp’s Northwind sample site for reference.

This post outlines how to make NUnit and RhinoMocks appear as options when generating a test project during creation of a new MVC app.
