Custom Tag Helpers with ASP.Net Core & MVC 6

I was playing around with the new tag helper functionality in MVC 6 and decided to put together a quick tutorial on how to create custom tag helpers for your own MVC 6 projects.

I was never really a fan of mixing markup and code within Razor views and I believe tag helpers are a much nicer way to separate out code a functionality in your web projects.
