7 Steps from (Angular) WebApplication to Windows Store

I have deployed fairly easy the .NET Core Alphabet applcation to Windows Store . Supposing that you already have registered the name of the application to the windows store (https://partner.microsoft.com/en-us/dashboard/windows/overview )

Those are the steps:

1. Compile the Angular Application ( with ng build –prod –build-optimizer  )

2. Create a new WinJS App for Universal Windows

3. Copy the results ( index.html and js )from the point 1 to a dist folder

4. Save the files with BOM ( either from VS, Save as, then save with encoding, either using dos2unix –m  <namefile>

5. Modify the main.js by adding : window.location.href=’dist/index.html’;    

6. Modify the Visual Assets to the images of your application

7. Right click the application, Store => Create App Package . And deploy to the store
