Bolero - F# Tools for Blazor

Build status

Bolero is a set of tools and libraries to run F# applications in WebAssembly using Blazor.

It includes:

  • HTML functions using a familiar syntax similar to WebSharper.UI or Elmish.React.
  • Templating to write HTML in a separate file and bind it to F# using a type provider.
  • Elmish integration: run an Elmish program as a Blazor component, and Blazor components as Elmish views.
  • Routing: associate the page's current URL with a field in the Elmish model, defined as a discriminated union. Define path parameters directly on this union.
  • Remoting: define asynchronous functions running on the server and simply call them from the client.
  • F#-specific optimizations: Bolero strips F# signature data from assemblies to reduce the size of the served application.

Bolero is an early stage project, and Blazor itself is considered experimental, so expect the API to fluctuate.
