Readme file error on SignalR SelfHost package

SignalR LogoWhen installing Microsoft.SignalR.SelfHost package, there was, as in any SignalR nuget package
a readme file opened. However, this time there’s an error in the file that caused me an hour
of head-scratching.


The readme suggested you call the self-hosted web application as the following:
(Copied from the readme file)


using System;

using Microsoft.Owin.Hosting;


namespace MyWebApplication


    public class Program


        static void Main(string[] args)


            using (WebApplication.Start<Startup>("http://localhost:8080/"))


                Console.WriteLine("Server running at http://localhost:8080/");






However, the compiler will tell you that there is no class named WebApplication .

After my head-scratching I’ve finally found the error: The class is named WebApp

and not WebApplication.

 I hope the readme file will be corrected soon, meanwhile you can use this post.
