Once we are done building our custom site, we can deploy it
just like we did with BlogEngine.NET. All we need to do is click the “Publish”
button within WebMatrix, select a remote hosting provider, and our simple
application will be live on the Internet.
Open in Visual Studio
Projects created with WebMatrix can also be opened within
Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Web Developer 2010 Express (which is free).
These tools provide an even richer set of features for web development, and a
work environment more focused on professional development. WebMatrix
projects can be opened within Visual Studio simply by clicking the “Visual
Studio” icon on the top-right of Ribbon UI:
This will launch VS 2010 or Visual Web Developer 2010
Express, and open it to edit the current Web site that is open within
WebMatrix. We’ll be shipping an update to VS 2010/VWD 2010 in the future
that adds editor and project-system support for IIS Express, SQL CE, and the
new Razor syntax.
How to Learn More
to learn more about WebMatrix. An early beta of WebMatrix can now be downloaded
You can read online tutorials and watch videos about WebMatrix by
visiting the www.asp.net
web-site. Today’s beta is a first preview of a lot of this technology,
and so the documentation and samples will continue to be refined in the weeks
and months ahead. We will also obviously be refining the feature-set
based on your feedback and input.
