Much needed. However, confusion exists in deciding which nugget to use. Ex Rinsin.onewire or Microsoft.IoT.Lightning, etc.

Description should mention that it requires downloading Visual Studio's Universal Windows App Development Tools before it will work.

Works as expected, very good entry point for developing UWP apps for Raspberry Pi 2.

Not clear why this isn't using the Visual Micro solution.

Ne se charge pas !?
Erreur : ce modèle a tenté de charger un assembly de composant 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Universal.TemplateWizards, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.
Pour plus d'informations sur ce problème ainsi que sur l'activation de ce modèle, consultez la documentation relative à la personnalisation des modèles de projet.

Après de (trop) longues recherches il s'avère qu'il faut installer "Windows Universel" depuis le gestionnaire de projets comme indiqué sur ce site au point 5 :

Merci pour la convivialité...

Would not load something about: System.Security.Cryptography.CryptographicException: SignatureDescription could not be created for the signature algorithm supplied.
at System.Security.Cryptography.Xml.SignedXml.CheckSignedInfo(AsymmetricAlgorithm key)

Very disappointed.

    • Where are these templates for VS 2013, I have read that we can use either 2013 or 2015 to edit author IoT projects but I can't find the project templates. 
      This installation only works with VS 2015.
