Wednesday, April 9, 2014 1:45 PM

Creating Reusable Components For ASP.NET Razor Web Pages

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 7:39 PM

ASP.NET Web Pages WebMatrix

There are a number of ways that you can maximise code re-use within a Razor Web Pages site: Layout pages, helpers, functions and so on. As you build more sites, you soon find that you are repeating code between them. You might have a collection of custom utility functions and extension methods, for example that you find yourself copying and pasting across sites. Over time, this will become a maintenance nightmare as different versions of the methods live in different sites. This article shows how to solve that problem easily by creating a library that can be shared across multiple sites.
