    I am working on a project where Kendo UI SPA is a good fit.  I use Visual Studio as my development environment and found the Kendo UI SPA project template for Visual Studio 2013.  Unfortunately I am a VB programmer and the project template is only available for C#.

    Do you expect to have a VB version soon or is there perhaps a way to convert the C# project to a VB.Net project?

    Hi John!

    My name is Burke Holland and I created that project template.  It's a community project, so not officially supported by Telerik.

    However, I think we can get you up and running here.

    Create a new MVC 4 project (VB of course) and then add in the Kendo UI SPA NuGet Package.  Once you do that, you will want to add the following code to your home view...

    @using System.Web;
    @using System.Web.Optimization;
    <!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
        <meta name="description" content="">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
        <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/modernizr-2.6.2.js")"></script>
        <div id="applicationHost">
            <!-- The application is rendered here -->
        <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/require.js")" data-main="@Url.Content("~/App/main")"></script>

    Since this is really just a community project, lets continue this discussion on email and I'm sure we can get you rolling...

    I do not know anything about what code the T4 template created, but Telerik and Dev Fusion bot have a code converter.  The Telerik one is at:
    I use them all the time.
