DevExpress DevExtreme ASP.NET Core CRUD Application

DevExpress has been providing UI components since 1998 and have won many awards year in year out. They can be counted amongst the top component publishers like Telerik, Infragistics, etc. Their DevExtreme component suite has won the Visual Studio Magazine Readers Choice Best Cross-Platform suite for the past 3 years.

CodeStencil just released a stencil that targets this same DevExtreme family of components, and this stencil gives you the ability to generate a complete working application with full CRUD capabilities.  It was inspired by a demo realeased some weeks ago on YouTube showing how to easily implement the DevExtreme Grid in a Razor application, See: https://youtu.be/vMcAF07DM20  

This stencil will generate models, razor pages, services, controllers, etc. The good thing is that you have full control and configuration on how the code is generated, so you do not end up with a lot of redundant code.

Syncfusion Blazor Grid Stencil

Syncfusion has been providing UI components since 2001 and can be counted amongst the top component publishers like DevExpress, Telerik, Infragistics, etc. So it is no surprise to see them push out Blazor components to complement this new Microsoft Technology.

CodeStencil now has a stencil to help Syncfusion developers generate all the necessary code to kick off a Blazor project - The Syncfusion Blazor Grid Stencil.

This stencil will generate models, razor pages, services, controllers, etc. The good thing is that you have full control and configuration on how the code is generated, so you do not end up with a lot of redundant code you have to start deleting.

So, let's see how this is done.

If you do not have CodeStencil installed, you can download and install a free/trial copy from Downloads.

What is CodeStencil?

I have always been a firm believer of the saying.. "Do not reinvent the wheel". So, I am always looking for ways to speed up or cut out repetitive tasks.

The concept of CodeStencil is simple... string replacement.

CodeStencil is simply an IDE that helps you intelligently use existing code to build a stencil (or in familiar terms - a Template) that can be used to generate the same code, again, but at the same time allowing you to define the strings to replace.

From the screenshot below, NAMESPACE will be replaced by "Dolasoft" during code generation:

Unlike standard code generators, you do not need to learn a template language. If you do not want to build your Stencil from scratch, you can create it within minutes from already generated code.
