.NET MAUI – Blazor – Interop

This is Part 2 in the multi-part series of .NET MAUI – Blazor articles.

In Part 1, we’ve seen an introduction on how to make use of BlazorWebView in the .NET MAUI app.

Part 3 of this series is on the streamlined process of registering the dependencies for BlazorWebView from .NET MAUI RC1 release.

Since it is implemented as a View, it’s possible to share data between .NET MAUI and Blazor and that’s the takeaway of this article. Along with that, the core logic is now abstracted as Razor Class Library (RCL), Dependency Injection, and Component routing for Navigation.

.NET MAUI, Multi-platform App UI, a framework to develop high-performant, cross-platform, native mobile and desktop applications for Android, iOS, macOS (via Mac Catalyst), and Windows from a single codebase.

And Blazor, a framework for full-stack web development with C# and Razor.

When these two modern technologies come together, then it’s certainly a delight for the .NET developers as it paves the way to leverage the skills they’re already familiar with.

.NET MAUI – Templates for Visual Studio 2022

With .NET 6 Preview 6 released on Jul 14, 2021, and now Preview 7 released on Aug 10, 2021, .NET MAUI progressed a lot with Workloads, Gestures, Clipping, Alerts, New Layouts, and mainly first-class support for Visual Studio 2022 (with Preview 3.x). But, there is a catch in here. NO item templates for Visual Studio for now :-(.

Update: This extension is now updated to support .NET MAUI Preview 10 with VS2022 Preview (17.1.0 Preview 1.0) IDE and .NET MAUI (Preview) Mobile Development workload installed. This can be downloaded and installed from the same link mentioned in this article.

Update: A more advanced all-in-one .NET MAUI App project template is now available to install. Check out this article for more details.
