HTML5 apps can now be developed with C# and XAML with the release of the CSHTML5 Visual Studio Extension.
“We wanted to use our knowledge and expertise in C# and XAML to port or create web applications”, says Giovanni Albani, CEO of Userware. “The end of support for Silverlight announced for 2021 by Microsoft confirmed it was time for us to further develop CSHTML5.”
Developers have the option to either build new apps from scratch, or port their existing Silverlight, UWP, and WPF applications to the web. In practice, CSHTML5 is able to keep up to 97% of their existing code, effectively reducing to only 3% the amount of compatibility modifications required for a successful app migration.
The extension already supports 99% of C# language features, 75% of XAML, and 55% of .NET types and framework classes. CSHTML5 also supports web service calls, integration into existing web apps, sharing code between the client and the server, extensions and plugins, and more.
CSHTML5 is also free, with different upgrades you can choose from depending on your needs and project.
