Now that Microsoft release core .NET Framework. Is posible to run an ASP.NET 5 website on Linux?

Seem to be posible: I currently don’t undestand how ASP.NET can work on Linux or if I’m misinterpreting. If is a reality, this can lead me to jump on ASP.NET and build a website with a server here in DigitalOcean.

DigitalOcean now has a pre-configured .NET Core w/ PowerShell on 16.04 one-click. This is essentially an Ubuntu 16.04 x64 droplet with the dot net core AND powershell pre-installed.

More documentation on .Net Core here and Powershell here.

I’d love to see a DO tutorial on using .net core with linux.

I followed the MS documentation but at this step below a large amount of dependencies where not found. sudo apt-get install libunwind8 gettext libssl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev zlib1g libicu-dev uuid-dev

Did anyone actually try this? I attempted the setup on ubuntu 14 and 15.
