Microsoft Publishes New Documentation for Blazor, ASP.NET Core

Microsoft published new documentation for its .NET 6 web-dev component, ASP.NET Core, including the red-hot Blazor framework.

The company detailed new documentation and updated documentation added in October.

First and foremost in the post is Blazor, which allows for primarily using C# in browser-based web projects instead of having to rely so heavily on JavaScript. It comes in a client-side component based on WebAssembly (WASM) -- to which C# code is compiled for use in the browser -- and a server-side component, amounting to a full-stack web-dev framework that is also being pointed to other targets.

A new piece of documentation addresses WASM deployment layout in an article titled "Deployment layout for ASP.NET Core Blazor WebAssembly apps." That technical article addresses environments that block clients from downloading and executing DLLs, which are required to make Blazor WebAssembly function. A subset of those environments allows for changing the DLL files extension to bypass security restrictions, which is thwarted by some security products that can scan the content of files traversing the network and block or quarantine DLL files. The article "describes one approach for enabling Blazor WebAssembly apps in these environments, where a multipart bundle file is created from the app's DLLs so that the DLLs can be downloaded together bypassing security restrictions."

Several Blazor articles were also updated, including:

Other topics and their new articles include:

Updated article topics include security and more.

Twenty community contributors were recognized for their help in beefing up the documentation, which Microsoft has said is a good way to get started in contributing to the open source community.
