Radzen Open Sources 60+ Blazor Components

Radzen, a development tooling vendor that provides third-party components for .NET coders, open sourced its controls for Blazor, Microsoft's red-hot open source project that enables web development in C#.

Radzen is one of the companies specifically mentioned by Microsoft in its Blazor documentation as filling out the rich UI component ecosystem, along with Telerik, DevExpress, Syncfusion, Infragistics, GrapeCity and jQWidgets.

The company this week announced the open sourcing of Blazor components in this tweet:

The company hasn't provided any further updates on the move, on Twitter or its blog site.

The Radzen Blazor Components GitHub site already shows 689 stars and 84 forks as of this writing, listing these features:

  • The first in the industry WYSIWYG Blazor design time canvas
  • Scaffolding a complete CRUD applications from a database
  • Built-in security - authentication and authorization
  • Visual Studio Code and Professional support
  • Deployment to IIS and Azure
  • Dedicated support with 24 hour guaranteed response time
  • Active community forum

Meanwhile, the Blazor Component Library web site notes that more than 60 native Blazor UI controls are now available for use, installable via NuGet or by copying the source code. Paid support is available with a subscription. The NuGet entry shows 264,686 total downloads as of this writing.

In describing the native controls it says:

  • The components are implemented in C# and take full advantage of the Blazor framework.
  • They do not depend on or wrap existing JavaScript frameworks or libraries.
  • Both server-side and client-side (WASM) Blazor are supported.

Controls include the usual gamut of forms, charts, gauges, data grids, editors and so on.

Developers wanting to try out the new open source offerings can use "get started" guidance.
