ASP.NET Core is primarily a server-side web development framework in which the rendering of HTML takes place on the server resulting in a strong centralization of CPU effort and large bandwidth consumption. Shifting towards a client-centric model poses a few challenges – first and foremost, data-binding. You can rely on jQuery or Vanilla JS to place dynamic calls and grab JSON from the backend, but you still have the problem of turning that JSON in HTML. Popular frameworks like Angular and React solve the problems but, although for different reasons, place further challenges and require some paradigm shift. Vue.js, instead, seems to be the perfect fit especially for developers with a strong ASP.NET background. In this session, we’ll see how to use Vue.js in conjunction with an ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core backend and how to mix and match client-side programming with a server-side markup language like Razor.
