  • Open Visual Studio 2015 and create a new project of type ASP.NET 5 Web Application.
  • On this project I create a solution called Demo.

  • Press OK, and a new screen will appear, with several options of template to use on our project.

On the solution on the top of controller folder, select the option Add New Scaffold Item.


On the new screen, select the option MVC6 Controller with views using entity framework.


Select the name of the controller, class model and data context class.

The new controllers and views associated, was created with sucess.
