.NET-based Dev Stack for Modern Web Apps

MVVM is a great pattern for large line-of-business web apps with complicated user interfaces and interactive forms.

No need to write tons of javascript code, build your REST APIs, deal with AJAX requests, serialization, date formats etc.

 

With DotVVM, you only have to write a viewmodel in C# and a view in HTML. The rest is taken care of.

ViewModel = C#

public class ContactFormViewModel 
{
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string Email { get; set; }
    public void Submit() 
    {
        ContactService.Submit(Name, Email);
    }
}

View = HTML

<div class="form-control">
    <dot:TextBox Text="{value: Name}" />
</div>
<div class="form-control">
    <dot:TextBox Text="{value: Email}" />
</div>
<div class="button-bar">
    <dot:Button Text="Submit"
        Click="{command: Submit()}" />
</div>

Controls

DotVVM includes a set of 20 built-in controls. All controls support data-binding, and render CSS-styleable HTML.

You can of course build your own controls and use them accross multiple projects.

  <ContentTemplate> 
    ... 
  </ContentTemplate> 
  <FooterTemplate> 
    <bs:Button Type="Primary" Text="Save" Click="{command: Save()}" /> 
  </FooterTemplate> 
</bs:ModalDialog> 

You can also buy Bootstrap for DotVVM, a set of controls which wrap all Bootstrap components and widgets. They support data-binding and integrate nicely with DotVVM validation. They will help you build modern-looking app really quickly.
