What is Blazor?

Blazor was a Microsoft experimental project which is with the goal of building a client web UI framework based on .NET and WebAssembly. Developers can use Blazor to "Build rich interactive UIs using C# instead of JavaScript.".

Blazor brings epoch-making significance to the .NET developers. Because most of .NET programmers are not comfortable with JavaScript writing webpages because they are more familiar .Net. Now, They can write web client UI using C# instead of JavaScript.

Server-side Blazor and Client-side Blazor

In the newer Blazor version, the old Server Component (or called as ASP.NET Core Razor Component) is named back to Server-side Blazor. The old client Blazor is named to Client-side Blazor.

Server-side Blazor runs on the server via SignalR

Client-side Blazor runs client-side on WebAssembly
