Apart from those, there are many features/advantages of Blazor:
- Blazer doesn’t require browser plugins.
- Enables Full .NET debugging.
- It uses the latest web browser capabilities.
- Model for building compassable UI.
- Browser compatibility (even for older versions).
- Dependency injection is available.
- Can share code between client and server.
Blazor vs. React
Many find React as the best library for web component development. Though its difficult to compare the two, we have to agree that React is well-established and earned its respect with a proven track record and by having a strong community around it.
React’s eco-system is booming with libraries and frameworks that streamline the development of optimized React apps. Among these tools and libraries are, what I consider, real deal-brakers like Bit (Github) that help in managing and sharing React components.
Libraries that make React a “universal language”, capable of delivering apps for the web, CLI, iOS, Android, Windows, and more, coupled with component sharing tools, like Bit, make React too hard to pass.
In comparison, Blazor is new but, it brings the flavor from its well-established counterpart Razor. So we don’t need to consider it entirely novel to developers. Besides, since Blazor uses C# for development, the transition for any .NET developer would be faster. Although React brings a large variety of features and advantages with its maturity, we can also notice several advanced features available with Blazor regardless of its’ age.
- Similar to React, we can deploy Blazor also as static files.
- Can use NuGet packages.
- We can use the same components, both the client & server-side (though that is, of course, also possible when using JS/TS)
- Blazor has built-in support for routing, validations, and form handling.
