Template for Web API using controllers

Dear all,

maybe I just didn't find it but I'm missing a template to create a Web API solution that uses MVC…

What I mean is producing the same result in Rider as using the following command line:

dotnet new webapi -controllers -f net8.0

Sure, it's not a problem to use the command mentioned above but I just was confused that imho this is the template that is missing in Rider.

Many thanks and best regards,

Start from .NET 8, minimal API is the default type when creating new API project with dotnet CLI. 

As Rider is using the default parameters of dotnet CLI, the controller-based API project is not considered in .NET 8. You can install more templates in the new solution dialog.

You can create new projects and open them in Rider anytime.
