    Blazor and bridge.net

    I hope you are aware of the Microsoft plans to release Blazor framework http://blazor.net early next year. What will be your reaction to it? Are you going continue supporting and extending bridge.net system? Are you going support web assemblies architecture as well? Any plans in this regards?

    Thank you,
    Alex

    At this point, major feature development within Bridge is on hold.

    Blazor looks pretty cool. If it works well for your project, you should use it.

      Hi Geoffrey,

      Does this mean it's effectively EOL ? (End of Life) for Bridge ?

      Are you working on a WebAssembly replacement ? Or just monitoring Blazor / Typescript / etc ?

      Thanks
      Andrew

        Not end of life for Bridge. We just don't have the resources (time + money) to dedicate to the project right now.

          I think the generic question is:
          "Would WASM replace JavaScript"

          I think not.
          (further discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/javascript/...sm_replace_js/)

          But if I had to choose between Blazor WASM or Blazor + Bridge.NET, I would choose the one that gives the simplest and straightforward path to wrap already existing JavaScript or WASM libraries.

          Wrappers are going to be a very interesting project, specially for people like me who would like to use SQLite on the client side.

            Hi JorgeVG,

            Maybe the sql.js lib support using Retyped could be of some assistance to you, see

            https://retyped.com/?q=sql#search

            Hope this helps.

              Thank you geoffrey.mcgill
              and yes, http://retyped.com is just what I need.
              I will check if retyped.sqlite3 is using Script.Call() under the hood, or if it is implemented entirely in C#.

              Thanks
