Create a Blazor WebAssembly App in Visual Studio for Mac

You can create Blazor WebAssembly App in Visual Studio for mac by the following way.

Install Syncfusion Blazor Packages in the App

Here’s an example of how to add Blazor Calendar component in the app, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio (Tools → NuGet Package Manager → Manage NuGet Packages for Solution), search and install Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars and Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes.


Syncfusion Blazor components are available in Refer to NuGet packages topic for available NuGet packages list with component details.

Register Syncfusion Blazor Service

Open ~/_Imports.razor file and import the following namespace.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars

Now, register the Syncfusion Blazor Service in the ~/Program.cs file of your Blazor WebAssembly App.

using Syncfusion.Blazor;

var builder = WebAssemblyHostBuilder.CreateDefault(args);

Add stylesheet and script resources

The theme stylesheet and script can be accessed from NuGet through Static Web Assets. Reference the stylesheet and script in the <head> of the main page as follows:

  • For Blazor WebAssembly app, include it in the ~wwwroot/index.html file.
    <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Themes/bootstrap5.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor.Core/scripts/syncfusion-blazor.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


Check out the Blazor Themes topic to discover various methods (Static Web Assets, CDN, and CRG) for referencing themes in your Blazor application. Also, check out the Adding Script Reference topic to learn different approaches for adding script references in your Blazor application.

Add Syncfusion Blazor component

<SfCalendar TValue="DateTime" />
  • +F5 to run the app. Then, the Syncfusion Blazor Calendar component will be rendered in the default web browser.
