They can be used in various scenarios after adjusting and customizing them to match your specific needs. From supplying code examples to documentation, facilitating copying examples into local test apps, or demonstrating some of the best Blazor practices, you can learn and benefit significantly from a Blazor app example. However, finding a good sample that matches your app requirements or scenario can be challenging sometimes. Some Blazor project examples are easy to get started with and fine-tune because they are kept up to date, so that you can use them as a foundation straight away. Others you may find a bit overwhelming due to things like: Third-party libraries and too many data classes. Requirements and architectural specifics. Older sample apps that don’t reflect the latest best practices and patterns because Blazor itself has undergone significant improvements. That’s why in this article, we gathered 3 top Blazor app examples you can use right away. What else will you learn in this blog post? When is it better to use a Blazor app example 3 ready-to-use Blazor web app examples A heads-up: what makes it easy to inspect a sample app and the code behind it with low code A Dev Tip When To Get Started With A Blazor App Example? Apart from the obvious – gaining a quick start and hands-on learning experience in terms of Blazor syntax, features, and other fundamentals – using Blazor sample applications brings many other advantages. For fast prototyping or a small-scale POC Blazor web app examples usually have a basic structure that can be extended or modified to match the requirements of your Blazor app. This allows you to speed up prototyping while focusing on implementing unique functionalities later. Using one such Blazor application also aids in evaluating and validating things like technical feasibility and suitability and how well Blazor can serve your project. In front of stakeholders, you can showcase core features and functionalities that you intend to implement. Gaining valuable insights Usually, samples and examples are often driven by best practices, architectural patterns, and recommended coding techniques. By examining these sample apps, then, you can gain insights directly into industry-standard approaches for architecting and developing a Blazor application. To identify potential issues One way to use Blazor project examples is to look at them as a quick resource for troubleshooting common problems and bugs. You can compare the code, structure, and implementation by examining a sample app alongside your own Blazor app. This comparison will enable you to see how the sample app handles similar features or functionalities and you can more easily identify discrepancies that may be the root cause. Our Top 3 Choice of Ready-To-Use Blazor App Examples Note that all Blazor example applications listed here are framework-agnostic. They were initially built for Blazor, but you can switch to Angular or Web Components and generate code in a single click with our low-code App Builder.
