After reading .NET Core on Raspberry Pi and successfully running a console application on Windows 10 IoT Core on my Raspberry Pi 3 I decided to write: Step by step: Running ASP.NET Core on Raspberry Pi.

First be aware of the following prerequisites:

Now let’s start:

1. Create a folder for your new project
2. Create a global.json file
3. Create the ASP.NET Core project
4. Modify the project file
5. Add a Nuget.config file and restore packages
6. Modify Program.cs
7. Publish the application
8. Copy libuv.dll
9. Copy the files to your Raspberry
10. Run the application

You should be good to go and be able to browse on port 5000 of you RPi.

Get the code here: https://github.com/cmendible/dotnetcore.samples/tree/master/aspnet.on.rpi

Hope it helps!
