missing “ASP.NET Core Web Application (.NET Core)” template

I am trying to develop a ASP.NET Core application. I tried following the documentation (for example this tutorial), but I fail to find the ASP.NET Core template. The dialog that should contain it looks like that instead: the new project dialog.

I am using Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 Version 14.0.25431.01 Update 3, and installed the Microsoft .NET Core 1.0.1 VS 2015 Tooling Preview 2 (I have also repaired and reinstalled it, without success).

Answer

Ensure you have the Microsoft Web Development Tools installed which you can find in the Visual Studio installer under Windows and Web Development

Once installed, start up Visual Studio and check your templates again and you should see the ASP.NET Core templates.
