Syncfusion has provided a Blazor Template Studio in the 2020 Volume 1 release for creating Blazor apps that integrate Syncfusion components. The various features of this extension—installing NuGet packages, adding Syncfusion Blazor component sample code, and applying built-in templates to enhance the user experience—make it a useful tool. These features save developers significant time in creating and configuring projects.
In this blog, I am going to explain how to create a Syncfusion Blazor app using the Blazor Template Studio.
The prerequisites for creating a Blazor app are:
- Visual Studio 2019
- .NET Core 3.0 SDK or Later (Download Link)

The Blazor Template Studio extension for Visual Studio is available in the Blazor setup of the Syncfusion Essential Studio 2020 Volume 1 release.

Creating a Syncfusion Blazor app
The following are the steps to create a Syncfusion Blazor app:
- In Visual Studio 2019, select File > New > Project. This opens a dialog for creating a new project.
- In the dialog, either select the Syncfusion option in the templates or search for Syncfusion in the search box.
- Select Syncfusion Blazor Template Studio from the search results and click Next.
- Provide a name for the app.
- Select the Blazor project type you need:
- Syncfusion Blazor Server App.
- Syncfusion Blazor WebAssembly App.
Note: In Syncfusion Blazor WebAssembly App project type, we can choose ASP.NET Core hosted, Progressive Web Application, or both.
Note: The Progressive Web Application option will only be available if .NET Core SDK version 3.1.102 or newer is installed.
- Select the controls you need for your app by clicking the Add option in Controls
- In the Features tab, select the features you need for the selected Syncfusion controls.
