Overview of this book

Building Blazor WebAssembly Applications with gRPC will take you to the next level in your web development career. After working through all the essentials of gRPC, Blazor, and source generators, you will be far from a beginner C# developer and would qualify as a developer with intermediate knowledge of the Blazor ecosystem. After a quick primer on the basics of Blazor technology, REST, gRPC, and source generators, you’ll dive straight into building Blazor WASM applications. You’ll learn about everything from two-way bindings and Razor syntax to project setup. The practical emphasis continues throughout the book as you steam through creating data repositories, working with REST, and building and registering gRPC services. The chapters also cover how to manage source generators, C# and debugging best practices, and more. There is no shorter path than this book to solidify your gRPC-enabled web development knowledge. By the end of this book, your knowledge of building Blazor applications with one of the most modern and powerful frameworks around will equip you with a highly sought-after skill set that you can leverage in the best way possible.

Creating data services

In the real world, we will probably continue with creating an interface as a descriptor of the methods available in our services. However, for the purpose of this book, the approach without interfaces will be better, as it will lower the amount of code needed to run the application, without any drawbacks. If we need to use interfaces in the future, we can generate them using Visual Studio refactoring tools at any time.

The first service class that we will create will be a generic BaseService class that will handle all our database communication:


using AutoMapper;
using MediaLibrary.Server.Data;
using MediaLibrary.Shared.Model;
using Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore;
namespace MediaLibrary.Server.Services;
public abstract class BaseService<TEntity, TModel>
    where TEntity : BaseEntity
    where TModel : IModel, new()
    private readonly MediaLibraryDbContext _dbContext...
