Getting exposed to dotnet Core. In a sample test application trying to setup EntityFramework.Core in dotnet core app. While I was able to add the EntityFramework.Core NugGet package I can't find the 'Add'->'New Item'->'Data'->'ADO.NET Entity Data Model'
Is this not possible with EntityFramework.Core?
How does EntityFramework.Core differ from EntityFramework 7?
There is no edmx support in Entity Framework Core. It only supports a code-first approach. The option to add a new Entity Data Model will be added, but it will produce entity class files instead of an edmx file. The tooling development is a little bit behind the framework development currently.
Still no EDMX support yet for .Net core. To generate the dbcontext and entities from database, run below command in package manager console:
Scaffold-DbContext "Server=yourserver;Database=yourdatabase;Trusted_Connection=True;" Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -OutputDir Models
You will need these packages:
Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer.Design
