Blazor Getting Started,.NET Web Framework

Blazor: An Overview

Blazor, a new.NET web framework from Microsoft, was recently released. Blazor is a free, open-source Web framework for creating Web apps that run in a browser using C#. Here, we'll learn about Blazor, how to set up the Blazor development environment on our machine, and how to use Blazor and Visual Studio 2017 to run our first ASP.NET core program. We'll also use Blazor to create a sample calculator application.


What exactly is Blazor?

Blazor is a new.NET web framework for creating client-side applications that run in the browser using WebAssembly and C#/Razor. It can make developing single-page applications (SPAs) easier while also allowing full-stack web development with.NET.

 

Using.NET to develop client-side applications has several benefits, which are listed below.

  • .NET provides a stable and easy-to-use set of APIs and tools for all platforms.

  • C# and F# are two modern languages that have a lot of features that make programming easier and more interesting for developers.

  • Visual Studio, one of the best IDEs available, provides a great.NET development experience on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, and macOS.

  • In web development,.NET provides features like speed, performance, security, scalability, and reliability that make full-stack development easier.


What is WebAssembly and how does it work?

WebAssembly (abbreviated Wasm) is a low-level assembly-like language that runs in a modern web browser and has a compact binary format. Humans cannot read or write it because it is a low-level binary code, but we can compile code from other languages to WebAssembly to make it easier to execute in the browser. It's a subset of JavaScript that's meant to work alongside and complement JavaScript. It allows us to run code written in multiple languages at near-native speeds on the web.

WebAssembly is a web standard that is supported by all major browsers without the need for plugins.


Why should you use Blazor?

Blazor's full-stack web development with.NET makes web development easier and more productive. It runs on the real.NET runtime in all browsers and supports .NET Standard without the need for any additional plugins. Blazor is lightweight, has reusable components, and is open-source with strong community support.

Blazor also supports features of a SPA framework such as:

  • Routing

  • Layouts

  • Forms and validation

  • JavaScript interop

  • Build on save during development

  • Server-side rendering

  • Dependency Injection


Prerequisites

  • Install .NET Core 2.1 Preview 2 SDK 

  • Install the latest preview of Visual Studio 2017 (15.7)
