ASP.NET Core Blazor: moderne Businessanwendungen mit C# & WebAssembly – Full-Stack & Cross-Plattform

ASP.NET Core Blazor: moderne Businessanwendungen mit C# & WebAssembly – Full-Stack & Cross-Plattform

Das Web als Plattform und der Browser als Ausführungsumgebung haben vor vielen Jahren ihren Siegeszug als Basis für moderne Businessanwendungen angetreten. Mit dem WebAssembly-Standard kann ein Entwickler heute neben JavaScript und TypeScript auch andere nicht webnative Programmiersprachen und Frameworks nutzen, um Cross-Plattform-Lösungen für den Browser zu realisieren. In diesem Workshop widmet sich Christian Weyer dem clientseitigen Blazor WebAssembly Framework des ASP.NET-Core-Teams. Sehen Sie, wie man mit Blazor, C# und .NET Web-basierte Single Page Applications (SPAs) baut und wie man mit einer passenden Anwendungsarchitektur über API und Push Services eine Full-Stack-Lösung mit C# implementiert. Auch weiterführende Konzepte wie Interoperabilität mit der Browserplattform und Umsetzung von Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) werden thematisiert. Zur Abrundung des Workshops soll auch ein Blick auf Server-side Blazor und der Vergleich damit nicht fehlen, um einschätzen zu können, wann man was einsetzt – und wann nicht.

    locally in the browser ✅ Full support for offline scenarios ✅ Deployment: static files on web server or cloud storage; Desktop or mobile app packaging ✴ Initial download size may be large (assets cached in browser, via Service Worker) ❌ .NET Standard code is currently interpreted by special WASM-version of Mono runtime ❌ Always needs JavaScript/TypeScript, until WASM standard is being further evolved ✅ Thin Client approach for light devices ✅ Full .NET runtime on the server, not just .NET Standard ✅ No need for API-based architecture ✴ All your code is on the server ❌ Inherently stateful execution model ❌ Need for permanent physical connections ❌ No viable option to implement offline features ASP.NET Core Blazor Moderne Business-Anwendungen mit C# & WebAssembly – Full-Stack- und Cross-Plattform My Personal Comparison Blazor WebAssembly Blazor Server

  64. 64 ASP.NET Core Blazor Moderne Business-Anwendungen mit C# & WebAssembly

    – Full-Stack- und Cross-Plattform Blazor Recap Blazor WebAssembly enables SPAs based on C# and .NET Standard. You need to know Web, SPA architectures, Security et. al. – and JavaScript! Blazor is young & immature – technical architecture, app size, missing features. The ecosystem is immature – may evolve similar to JS SPA frameworks, plus commercial vendors. The modern web with PWA & Web Components can also work and live with Blazor WebAssembly. Blazor Server might be a fit for internal applications. Stateful server-side execution model.
  65. 65 § Microsoft is building a new UI framework for

    the browser – so… § ❓… ask yourself § “How do we deal with Blazor WebAssembly?” § “Why would we pick Blazor WebAssembly over an established SPA framework?” § “Why would we choose a SPA framework, and not Blazor WebAssembly?” § ❗… you need to check your § Plans for existing & new projects § Team skills § Architecture § Codebase § Try it out & build Proof-of-Concepts (with experienced people) § Web Assembly & Blazor might change the game – but it may not be a game changer for you ASP.NET Core Blazor Moderne Business-Anwendungen mit C# & WebAssembly – Full-Stack- und Cross-Plattform Call-to-Action
