Two weeks of blazor.. I'm sold

Have been doing development since the 90s and generally have always found the mix of js, html, css and c# to be laborious.

Even react which I find to be the least annoying js framework is painful. Most of the time I would just go back to html, css and jquery to get stuff done quicker.

But blazor, wow, just doing server side blazor for two weeks and I'm making stuff with such little faff. Everything works so painlessly.

Using radzen ui components but not their ide, this is seriously impressive stuff.

Has anyone tested how well server side blazor scales when using azure signalr service? . Now I have used this there's no going back.

Blazor becoming the next big thing. Hell fucking yes.

I'm working on a new internal web app at work and casually suggested MVC/jQuery was an oddly old choice for a new project. We are now writing it in Blazor and everything is just wonderful.

meh, if they don't get these huge bundle sizes for wasm blazor in check it will stay relatively niche.

edit: rofl at the downvotes without any counterarguments. Says a lot about the blazor and c# community.

People here don't think payload size is important. Until they reduce that, blazor wasm is just niche.

But I believe blazer server is going to thrive sooner than later, despite being less scalable than wasm.

I'm sure that blazor server gets used a lot in .net shops, nothing wrong with that. The concept is not new. Vaadin and Phoenix live view offering the same concept for years if not for over a decade and you didn't hear about it outside of their respective ecosystems.
