How will Blazor lead the coding market?

Developers have long wanted for a language to write on the client-side directly using C# or HTML. Thanks to Microsoft’s ever increasing stack of tech, that is now made possible by Blazor. 

How does Blazor work?

Blazor is a free and open-sourced framework under the same coding umbrella as Angular JS and React JS. Blazor offers all the benefits of any modern day front-end framework, except it can work entirely in C#. Its speciality is it can render .NET on the client side and create independent coding that runs under Web Assembly. 

Benefits of using Blazor

  • Blazor runs just as fast as native applications, enhancing speed, performance, and convenience at the same time. 

  • Blazor supports all the SPA features required for a holistic development like routers, components, dependency injections, etc. 

  • Blazor, like static files, can be deployed on machines that have no .NET. 

  • Blazor is supported by all the mainstream browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, etc. It can even run on older versions which do not have Web Assembly via ASM JS

  • Blazor takes much less time for development thanks to Rich IntelliSense and other features. 

Why is Blazor the future of coding?

1. It helps run .NET code directly in browser

The initial USP of Blazor was this that developers could compile .NET apps and run them with the help of Blazor. Up until recently before the release of Web Assembly, JavaScript was the default language for any in-browser logic. So, developers had to mandatorily learn JavaScript to access the full stack of ASP.NET even if they were fully equipped in .NET. But now with Blazor, everything can be done in C# only, and there is no need for developers to learn JavaScript to work on it. 

2. Same code can be applied on client and server

This is the biggest pro of Blazor. Blazor allows developers to write a class library with shared functionality. This can then be added as a reference to both sides of the app. Although they will be executed in two separate platforms, the verification code remains the same and saves the writers an extra trip. 

3. It works offline as well

Unlike other codes, Blazor does not require communication between client and server for every little action. That means, it can work even if continuous network access is interrupted. If the network is down, the app with still continue to work as it is. In fact, once it is downloaded, developers can even create an app that is not at all dependant on the internet to function. 

4. Faster than alternatives 

Because Blazor is of compiled nature, it is much faster than its counterpart JavaScript. Otherwise not a big deal in terms of calculations and basic functions, the speed will prove to be significant in case of apps which are heavy and performance intensive.
