The JSON required by this code is provided by the .NET SDK webapi template. You run the web service app created by the template, which will generate weather forecast (as JSON).

You can try this on your own machine, with the following .NET SDK commands. It requires .NET 5.0 Preview 8 or later.

rich@thundera ~ % dotnet new webapi -o webapi
rich@thundera ~ % cd webapi 
rich@thundera webapi % dotnet run

Make sure you've run dotnet dev-certs https --trust first or the handshake between client and server won't work.

That will start the webserver, which will expose the forecast service at the following URL by default: https://localhost:5001/WeatherForecast. You can then run the sample above.

rich@thundera ~ % git clone weather-forecast
rich@thundera ~ % cd weather-forecast
rich@thundera weather-forecast % dotnet run

All we need now is dotnet run script <path-to-.cs-file> which uses a default .csproj
