Getting Started with Avalonia

Ready to get started with Avalonia? Follow these steps to install the templates and create your first application.


To install the Avalonia templates, run the following command:

dotnet new install Avalonia.Templates

Note: For .NET 6.0 and earlier, replace install with --install instead.

Creating a New Application

Once the templates are installed, you can create a new Avalonia application by running the following command:

dotnet new -o MyApp

This will create a new folder called MyApp with your application files. To run your application, navigate to the MyApp directory and run:

cd MyApp
dotnet run

That's it! Your Avalonia application is now up and running. You can open the MyApp folder to start improving and building upon your application.
