Missing Silverlight and Waiting for Blazor? CSHTML5 for C# Web Development Goes Open Source

Microsoft's experimental Blazor project to allow .NET coding for Web projects via experimental WebAssembly may be getting all the attention, but new open source tooling does something similar, acting like a bridge between the death of Silverlight and the production readiness of WebAssembly.

There are good reasons to keep working with Blazor 0.8.0.0 ... but you're going to need to make some changes.

Configuring Your Application-Wide Objects in ASP.NET Core
