In my daily job I need to create console applications quite often. The default Visual Studio 2017 console application template for .NET Core is very minimal and just contains the usual “Hello World”. But most of the time I need dependency injection, logging, want to have an async main, etc. I also like the structure of ASP.NET Core applications with its Startup class where you can configure your services. Therefor I created my own project template so I do not need to setup all this every time by myself.
