EPiServer and Visual Studio 2015



is it possible to create EPiServer project based on vnext web template (the one that leverages dnx and new project structure) in Visual Studio 2015?

Thanks in advance,

If I understand correctly you are just talking about the tooling and .NET 4.6, that should work, IDE change should not impact any framework layer stuffs and .NET 4.6 still use the dependencies from system.web. But you are are talking about the new .NET framework (Core), I don't think that will happen so quick. If you look into the vNext source code from the github, you will realise how many stuffs have been rewritten by MS. It's definitely not that easy task.

VNext on Core is not supported till now by EPiserver and no date has been released yet that when it will be available.

What about this piece of documentation which implies Visual Studio 2015 is already supported?

Visual Studio 2015 are supported but not VNext and 5.

It is only in preview mode right now and supporting it demans a very big rewrite of EPiServer since it is very different from earlier versions.

You can create new projects in VS2015, switch to .Net 4.6 and use all C# v6 goodies :)

Valdis, C# v6, but not the new version of MVC, or am I wrong?

yup, you are right. C# v6, but not Asp.Net vNext (btw, it's still in beta).
