You can scaffold the same way in VS code running in Linux, Mac OSx as you were able to do the same in Visual Studio.


Step 1 : -After creating the project open your .csproj file and update the following line. If you are using Repository pattern with dependency injection the you have to add in both .csproj file in Web and Data folder.

  <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Composition" Version="1.0.31" ExcludeAssets="All" 
  /><PackageReference Include="System.Composition" Version="1.0.31" />
  <DotNetCliToolReference Include="Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools.DotNet" Version="2.0.0" 
Step 2 : -Run 

dotnet restore

 and make sure your file restoration completes with no errors.

Step 3: – Open the command line tools by clicking on terminal.

Step 4: – Now you can scaffold using the following command.

dotnet ef dbcontext scaffold 'Server=Your_server;Database=Your_Db;Trusted_Connection=True;User Id=sa;Password=Your_Password;Integrated Security=false;' Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -o Models -f
