I’m new to wisej & web development in general.
I like what I’ve seen so far using the trial version but I’d like to know more about deployment.
I have some past experience with IIS & recall it used to be a nightmare to configure & would rather avoid it if possible.
I’m interested in self hosting & would like deployment as simple as possible.
Is it possible to package to package app & server up into one Installer? If so, can you explain how/the process please?
Also, is it possible to make an .exe web app?
Ideally it’d be great to launch an .exe which self hosts & runs in a browser. Pretty much a desktop app but with server built in.
Wisej was designed also for this type of deployment. Look at the HostService extension. It’s provided with the full source code and free. See also https://wisej.com/blog/self-hosting-and-standalone-web-apps/
Also, Wisej is capable of running as a single exe (really 1 file) as a service, a process or a desktop app. However, to package everything into a single exe you have to use ILMerge and do some other changes to let Wisej serve web.config and other system files from embedded resources. We are working on a tool called Wisej Container Builder that can do all of that easily.
An example of this approach is here: https://wisej.com/support/question/owin-self-hosted-application-in-single-binary
