How to add the SignalR client library in ASP.NET Core 2?

Hi, I'm using SignalR with .net core2 in Visual studio 2017 to send message to all users. But I don't know how can I add the SignalR client library.

My current javascript code is :

<script src="Scripts/jquery-1.6.4.min.js"
<script src="Scripts/jquery.signalR-0.5.2.min.js"
<script src="signalr/hubs" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

var myHubProxy = $.connection.hub.CreateHubProxy("MyHub");
myHubProxy.on('ClientsListener', function (msg) {
// alert to test
alert(' message from server');
$.connection.hub.start().done(function () {


In Which my project not contains those scripts :

<script src="Scripts/jquery-1.6.4.min.js"type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="Scripts/jquery.signalR-0.5.2.min.js"type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="signalr/hubs" type="text/javascript"></script>

Please how can add the SignalR client library. I was try this : But I remarked  no file clled Client_side library to add it .


  • In Solution Explorer, right-click the project, and select Add > Client-Side Library.

  • In the Add Client-Side Library dialog, for Provider select unpkg.

  • For Library, enter @aspnet/signalr@1, and select the latest version that isn't preview.

Thanks in advance.

Install using Nuget, Go to Tools->Nuget -> Nuget Package manager Console and use the command below

Install-Package Microsoft.AspNetCore.SignalR

Note: This file <script src="signalr/hubs" type="text/javascript"></script> is automatically created, you would not find it in any folder.

If you want to install it using Library Manager (LibMan) to get the client library from unpkg

Read this :

And you can easily add jQuery library, using Nuget or by adding jQuery cdn link.
