Create an MVC Web API Project

In order to create an MVC Web API, you must need Visual Studio, ASP.Net framework 4.0 or above and MVC 4 template installed.

Steps to create basic MVC Web API:

  1. Open Visual Studio, select File > New > Project > Visual C# > Web > ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Application > Name: Your MVC Project Name and click OK.

    MVC Project Name
    MVC Project Name
  2. Select Web API project template from the list and click OK.

  3. Visual Studio will now create basic MVC Web API project. Here I have created a folder name Presentation to organize my code.

  4. You can now additional models, views and controllers based on your requirements. But for now I would like to add a class library under another folder Integration.

    Integration.Facebook Class Library
  5. Finally I will add Integration.Facebook Class Library and rename the Class1.cs to Helper.cs

  6. You can now add your logic in Helper.cs class. I will add sample code in my next post “Integration of Facebook”.
