Microsoft Blazor is a C# and HTML based web app development framework announced by Microsoft in 2018. The solution incorporates two approaches for web app development: 1) Blazor Server where the web browser acts as a thin-client and most of the app business logic and computation runs on a server in the cloud and 2) Blazer WebAssembly which produces a single-page app that runs entirely in the browser and the business logic of the application is compiled into Wasm portable binary code. On January 14th, 2020, Microsoft announced experimental Xamarin.Forms binding for Microsoft Blazor. These Mobile Blazor bindings allow developers to use Xamarin forms to create native iOS and Android applications using C# and .NET, creating a mechanism that facilitates sharing code between Blazor web apps and mobile apps. At this time both the Blazer WebAssembly and Mobile Blazor solutions are experimental.
