What is ASP.NET Core?
ASP.NET Core is a free and open-source rewrite of the ASP.NET framework running on .NET Core and on Full Framework.
The advantages of ASP.NET Core are:
- ASP.NET Core is a free, open-source, and cross-platform rewrite of the ASP.NET framework. This includes even the pipeline and the hosting model.
- ASP.NET Core can run on .NET Core and on Full Framework.
- ASP.NET is lightweight and fast.
- Before the rewrite ASP.NET was tied to IIS. Now it is not anymore. Therefore ASP.NET can be self-hosted or it can be hosted by any web server very easily.
- ASP.NET is built on top of libuv. That is the same library that is used by Node.js.
