gRPC & Blazor WebAssembly: A match made in heaven?

With Blazor WebAssembly, developers can write C# code for SPAs in the browser and share code with the server-side of their applications. Usually, you design and use JSON-based Web APIs to communicate between the client and the server logic. In this session, Christian Weyer demonstrates how to employ gRPC & gRPC-Web in a code-first manner to share .NET interface contracts in a strongly-typed way. With this approach, no code generation is needed, you get the same syntax and full IntelliSense on both sides. In fact, you gain the good parts we already had many years ago with WCF - now for the ubiquitous & open web. But: is really everything gold that glitters?

.NET 8 brings Native AOT to ASP.NET Core, but many frameworks and libraries rely on unbound reflection internally and thus cannot support this scenario yet. This is true for ORMs, too: EF Core and Dapper will only bring full support for Native AOT in later releases. In this post, we will implement a database access layer with Sessions using the Humble Object pattern to get a similar developer experience. We will use Npgsql as a plain ADO.NET provider targeting PostgreSQL.

Originally introduced in .NET 7, Native AOT can be used with ASP.NET Core in the upcoming .NET 8 release. In this post, we look at the benefits and drawbacks from a general perspective and perform measurements to quantify the improvements on different platforms.

There are a lot of things going on in the background, when a Blazor WebAssembly application is being started. In some cases you might want to take a bit more control over that process. One example might be the wish to display a loading screen for applications that take some time for initial preparation, or when users are on a slow internet connection. However, in order to control something, we need to understand what is happening first. This article takes you down the rabbit hole of how a Blazor WASM application starts up.

Blazor WebAssembly is a powerful framework for building web applications that run on the client-side. With Project Fugu APIs, you can extend the capabilities of these apps to access new device features and provide an enhanced user experience. In this article, learn about the benefits of using Project Fugu APIs, the wrapper packages that are available for Blazor WebAssembly, and how to use them in your application.

Whether you're a seasoned Blazor developer or just getting started, this article will help you add superpowers to your Blazor WebAssembly app.

ASP.NET Core Blazor is Microsoft's framework for implementing web-based applications, aimed at developers with knowledge of .NET and C#. It exists alongside other frameworks such as ASP.NET Core MVC. About two and a half years after the release of Blazor WebAssembly and based on our experiences from many customer projects at Thinktecture, we want to have a close look at the following questions: What is the current state of the framework? How can you successfully use Blazor? And where does it have limitations?

If you are working with Blazor, gRPC is a big issue for transferring data from APIs to clients. One issue of developing with gRPC-Web is debugging the transmitted data because the data is in an efficient binary message format. In this article, I will show you how to solve this problem with the help of my NuGet.
