MVC4 – Basic Project Template

This is my second post on Exploring MVC 4 Templates. & i will discuss“Basic Project Template”

In Visual Studio 2010 . Create a new ASP.NET MVC4 Project.  Select “Basic” from given list of Templates & click OK.

This should create a project for you with following defaults.

mvcBasicProject

A Basic MVC project has no files under Controllers, Views & Models. Comparing with “Empty” Project,  App_Start folder contains BundleConfig.cs file & there is a Scripts folder in the solution. Project disk size is less than 30 MB.

In order to make this template working, we will add a HomeController & a Index view like we did in this post.
