How to Build Web App with Blazor Framework?

What is Blazor Framework?

Web App with Blazor Framework is an open-source web framework for building interactive clientside Web UI with .Net. It enables Developers to make rich interactive UIs using C# and HTML rather than Javascript. C# code is executed both on the server-side and client browser which means developers can reuse their C# code rather than learning a new javascript framework.

Blazor can run C# code by using WebAssembly. WebAssembly relies on open web standards, so for Blazor applications to figure, there’s no need for any extra plugin like in the past days.
