ASP.Net MVC Core For Developing Modern Web Applications

Spread the love

There is a dramatic shift away from developing traditional ASP.NET web applications and we couldn’t be happier about it. Of course, we’re talking about the surging demand for websites and applications built upon ASP.NET MVC Core. MVC Core is a new development framework from Microsoft that we think is going to impact web app development for years. Let’s talk about what’s exciting about ASP NET MVC Core framework and why we think it’s important for you and your next website or app.

What Is ASP Net MVC Core?

It is open-source, model view controller framework designed and optimized for use with ASP.NET Core. It is test-driven development (TDD)-friendly, uses the latest web standards and supports a pattern-based way of building dynamic websites with clean separation of concerns.

ASP Net MVC Core Improvements

  • New set of tools to make modern web development simpler and easier.
  • Built on .NET Core which supports complete side-by-side app versioning.
  • Merged web stack for MVC and Web API.
  • Allows building and running cross-platform ASP.NET apps on Linux, Mac and Windows.
  • Built-in support for dependency injection.
  • Runs on IIS or can be self-hosted in your own process.
  • Environment-based configuration is cloud-ready.
  • Integrated support for creating and utilizing NuGet packages.

What’s New In ASP Net MVC Core?

Microsoft has completely overhauled the existing ASP.NET MVC framework and come out with a new and advanced ASP.NET MVC Core. The new framework not only equips you with greater flexibility but also enables you to gain competitive advantages with high-end web applications.

Key Features Of ASP Net MVC Core

Cross-Platform Capability

ASP.NET Core, unlike the .NET framework, can be run beyond Windows platforms such as Linux, Mac, etc. Visual Studio Code is a component in Visual Studio, the development tool for ASP.NET that allows developing applications in Linux and Mac operating system.
Now, our team of dot net developers is leveraging this platform independency feature of ASP.NET Core to develop a single application that can be run on multiple platforms.

Added Flexibility Of Being Open Source

Being open-source, ASP.NET Core empowers you to maintain modularity across the project development environment in order to simplify coding. It also provides you with the flexibility to add libraries and framework components as required for application deployment.
You can avail the benefits of NuGet Package Manager to manage runtime. You can also include .NET Core libraries as well as ASP.NET Core framework libraries as per your project requirement.

Improved Support For Cloud Deployment

Cloud deployment support is enhanced due to the modular architecture of this framework. The flexible environment and extended modularity provided by ASP.NET MVC Core enables you to build applications that ready to be deployed on the cloud.

Supports Hosting Independence

Unlike ASP.NET application development, when it comes to ASP.NET Core application development, the applications can run on web servers other than IIS (Internet Information Services). This is because, as ASP.NET Core supports cross-platform, it could not keep the application dependent only on IIS. Earlier, IIS used to be the default server for ASP.NET applications. Moreover, ASP.NET Core gave a specification of OWIN (Open Web Interface for .NET) application.

Newly Introduced Tag Helpers

This feature is a newly added in ASP.NET Core framework. The Tag Helpers enables your server-side code to participate in building and rendering HTML elements in Razor files. You can also use them to define custom tags, e.g., environment or to modify the behaviour of existing tags, e.g., label. It can also be used to replace HTML helper methods in some cases as it is easy to use. Furthermore, Visual Studio, IDE for .NET supports the creation of HTML elements with Tag Helpers in a better way.

Built-In Support For Dependency Injection

Support for Dependency Injection was there even in previous versions of ASP.NET MVC, however, they were using third-party IoC container. In ASP.NET MVC Core, DI is built-in first which means that DI is wired in from the very beginning. As DI is baked into the core of ASP.NET MVC, you can effectively use this built-in feature in your application. In MVC, it can be used to support the coding structure. Moreover, you can use this DI in view files with the help of @inject directive:

Support For Json Based Configurations

Being an advanced framework, ASP.NET MVC Core supports JSON based files and configuration providers. You can manage the data with various providers such as Environment Variables, Command Line Parameters, and Azure Key Vault.

Unit Testing With xUnit.Net

In ASP.NET MVC Core, Visual Studio Unit Test framework has been replaced with to perform unit testing. Moreover, the use of interfaces and DI in this framework makes it well-suited for unit testing.


As ASP NET MVC Core offers so many benefits over previous versions, this improved framework is highly preferred by our team of web developers for building high-end enterprise apps with intuitive user experience. Its rich community is an added advantage. Be it business websites or webshops, you can gain an edge over the competition with .NET development.

Don’t you think with all these built-in enhanced features it is obvious to become the default choice of developers? Which is your favourite feature, by the way? How about starting a conversation? Please get in touch with us at –, we would love to hear from you.
