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.

Exposing CRUD operations in API controllers

The client side of our Blazor WebAssembly application will communicate with the server side using the HTTP client for API calls. We need to expose the endpoints for the client. Since we have a generic service class, we should create a generic controller.

We can start with the definition of the controller as follows:


using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc;
namespace MediaLibrary.Server.Controllers;
public class BaseController<TModel, TEntity, TService> :
    where TModel : Shared.Model.IModel, new()
    where TEntity : Data.BaseEntity
    where TService : Services.BaseService<TEntity, TModel>
    private readonly TService _service;
    private readonly string _createPath;
    public BaseController...
