Explore the Possibilities of the Blazor Playground App

Unsure about how to integrate specific styles, scripts, and services for your desired UI? The Syncfusion Blazor Playground offers a solution for exploring and building with Blazor components.

The Syncfusion Blazor Playground app is a free online code editor that offers a powerful and feature-rich environment for Blazor development and exploring Syncfusion’ Blazor UI components. It lets users write, edit, and preview Blazor components in real time with all necessary resources preloaded and ready to use. The Playground handles everything, from NuGet installation to script and style resource referencing and service registration.

Let’s explore the marvelous features of the  Blazor Playground app in detail.

Effortlessly render Blazor components

Getting started with Syncfusion Blazor components is a guide compatible with the Playground app. To render a component, we need to follow these configuration steps:

  1. First, find the Syncfusion Blazor user guide or demo page with the component you want. For example: Blazor Calendar.
  2. Then, copy the corresponding full code snippet.
  3. Paste it into the Playground editor.
  4. Execute the code by pressing the Run button or using <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>R</kbd>. Then, view the output in the result view. Refer to the following image.

Built-in code snippets

Built-in code snippets are available in the Syncfusion Blazor Playground app for over 80 UI components. You can utilize these snippets to render Syncfusion Blazor components without the need to search for the code from user guides or demo pages. To use these snippets:

  1. Click the Snippets menu in the Playground app and select your desired component from the pop-up.
  2. Execute the code by pressing the Run button or using <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>R</kbd>. Then, view the output in the result view. Refer to the following image.

Code editor for all Blazor components

Beyond Syncfusion Blazor components, you can write, compile, and run general Blazor components in the Playground app, too.

For example, you can render a basic layout as follows.

Real-time preview

The Playground editor seamlessly integrates with a real-time preview window. Every line of code you write will be reflected in the rendered UI, allowing you to customize the code snippet and experiment with it.

Managing NuGet packages

The Syncfusion Blazor Playground simplifies the addition or removal of NuGet packages with just a single click. By default, it includes the Syncfusion.Blazor NuGet package, but users can install additional packages from the Syncfusion Blazor library according to their component requirements.

For example, if you are going to explore the Blazor DataGrid component, you need to:

  1. Click NuGet Asset Manager in the top-right corner.
  2. Remove or uninstall the Syncfusion.Blazor NuGet package from the pop-up.
  3. Search for and install the Syncfusion.Blazor.Grid package.
  4. Include the namespace @using Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids at the top of the editor.

Working with components

The Playground editor enables the seamless addition and removal of Razor components, integrating them into the main _index.razor page. Additionally, users can remove child components with a single click using the close button if they are no longer needed.

Refer to the following image to see how the Blazor DataGrid is added as a child component inside a Dialog and integrated.
