Visual Studio ASP.NET Web Forms Site and GitHub RRS feed

  • Question

  • User2131847472 posted

    Hi, I have a project to do that require me to push my ASP.NET Web Forms Site to GitHub but right now I am having some problem. I use a .gitignore that takes out /bin and /packages from the project because from what I understand it's not needed. When I commit to Git I commit The "Websites" file that is only missing the /bin and the "Projects" file that only contain a ".vs" file and a "*.sln". When I checkout that branch on an other computer the nuget are all dead and there is no reference anymore. Am I doing something wrong? I can restore the nuget but I get a ton of error to some things missing like "optimization" and other thing like that.

    Hi Sl-lAD0W,

    According to your description, in default, the folder packages and bin won’t commit.

    You said there seems lost files, I suggest you could run the following command before commit.

    git add -a

    When others pull the code, there will no packages and bin, VS will auto restore them when compile.

    If you still has error, could you give the GitHub Address to me, I will try it.

    I also suggest you could use the default .gitignore file, see the following content.

    ## Ignore Visual Studio temporary files, build results, and
    ## files generated by popular Visual Studio add-ons.

    Thanks for the quick answer. So here are the step I did.
    1-Created a ASP.NET Web Forms Site.
    2-Took the "Projects" folder and the "Websites" folderthat only contain the site that I created. 
    3-Took the gitignore file you gave me in your answer and put it in the same folder as the other 2 folder
    4-Commited and pushed those things to git. So on my github interface I see 2 folder and 1 gitignore file on my commit.
    5-Downloaded that project
    6-Unzip it
    7-Open Visual studio 2017 and use the open project/solution option
    8-Get the ".sln" file that is in the "Projects" folder
    9-I get that error on build : 

    Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
    Error The CodeDom provider type "Microsoft.CodeDom.Providers.DotNetCompilerPlatform.CSharpCodeProvider, Microsoft.CodeDom.Providers.DotNetCompilerPlatform, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" could not be located. C:\Users\Simon\Desktop\GRYB-PFE-Simon\GRYB-PFE-Simon\WebSites\GRYB_Admin\Web.config 118

    10-I can get that error to go away by installaling that Nuget but then there is like 20 error that comes up for the other Nuget.

    Is there something I don't understand?

    Hi  Sl-lAD0W,

    According to your description, that’s so hard to give your correct suggestion.

    You said there still has 20 more errors, might there still missing some assemblies with your project, I’m unsure why.


    If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me any time.

    Best Regards

    Here is the result of what I am downloading from GitHub. https://ufile.io/oxgmq ; I tried with packages and without but the only way I got it to kinda work was with the /bin in the git repo. If you want to download the file and try to import it. It's the zip I downloaded from my Git repo.

    Thanks again.

    Hi SI-IAD0W,

    I'm not sure why this doesn't work for you. In case it helps, here's a typical .gitignore file.


    Here's a pretty comprehensive example from github:
