This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • Zigi - Delete the most useless function ever: context switching.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Markdig

    A fast, powerful, CommonMark compliant, extensible Markdown processor for .NET

    To see for yourself, create a new Blazor WebAssembly project. If you’re not sure how, check out this learning module. Next, add a reference to the Markdig package. Update the Index page to include this row:

  • gRPC

    The C based gRPC (C++, Python, Ruby, Objective-C, PHP, C#)

    Browser limitations make it impossible to implement a standard gRPC browser client because no APIs exist to control HTTP/2 communication. An open-source project called gRPC-Web provides an extension that functions in the browser and includes a proxy to handle requests from both implementations, making it possible to use gRPC from Blazor WebAssembly applications.

  • SonarLint

    Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint. Up your coding game and discover issues early. SonarLint is a free plugin that helps you find & fix bugs and security issues from the moment you start writing code. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • GrpcGenerator

    Code to generate a gRPC infrastructure for a Blazor WebAssembly application

    You can see the complete end-to-end example in the blog post How to use gRPC-Web with Blazor WebAssembly on App Service. An open-source project even generates all required gRPC infrastructure from a set of interfaces. Check out the gRPC generator to see the “grWizard” in action.

  • Hot Chocolate

    Welcome to the home of the Hot Chocolate GraphQL server for .NET, the Strawberry Shake GraphQL client for .NET and Banana Cake Pop the awesome Monaco based GraphQL IDE.

    Popular GraphQL libraries for .NET include GraphQL.NET and Hot Chocolate. To see GraphQL in action with a Blazor WebAssembly app, follow the Get started with Strawberry Shake guide. A companion to HotChocolate (GraphQL on the server), Strawberry Shake creates .NET GraphQL client proxies to consume endpoints with strongly-typed payloads.
