Create Folder for New Project
Create an empty MySerene (or a name you like) folder.

Serin has to be run from a completely empty directory
Run Serin to Create a New Project
While inside an empty directory, run serin:
Type an application name, e.g. MySerene and press enter. Take a break while Serin creates your project, initializes static content and restores packages etc.
After Serin creates your project, you will have a MySerene.Web folder under current directory. Enter that directory:

For OSX / Linux, first restore packages:
> dotnet restore
Make sure you run this command under MySerene.AspNetCore folder.
> dotnet run
