No executable found matching command “dotnet-ef”

Using the latest Entity Framework Core 1.1 is different from the previous version. I got the error “No executable found matching command “dotnet-ef”” when I run “dotnet ef migrations add Init” at the command prompt.

In order to correct this, you have to add the Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools.DotNet Version 1.1.0-preview4-final as one of your dependencies and configure your project.json as follows


"tools": {

"Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools.DotNet": {
"version": "1.1.0-preview4-final",
"type": "build"
}
}

Enjoy coding the latest EF Core.
