Blazor allows you to assign a route directly to a component in your application. These are called Blazor pages.

To assign a route to a component, use the @page attribute at the top of your .razor file.

@page "/developers"


Creating Blazor Pages

You can create a new Blazor page by hand or by running the following Spark CLI command:

spark make page Developers/Index

Just like a normal component, after running this command Spark will create 2 new files in your application.

The first will be a code behind file: Pages/Developers/Index.cs

namespace MyApp.Pages.Developers;

public partial class Index
    protected override void OnInitialized()

The second will be the Razor file: Pages/Developers/Index.razor

@page "/developers/index"


Organizing Pages

It is advised to create your Blazor pages in a subdirectory of the Pages folder and not the root of the Pages folder.

For example, lets say our app has a list of developers and open source work they’ve done.

We would want the following pages in the Pages/Developers directory:

  • Pages/Developers/Index.razor Show a list of developers
  • Pages/Developers/Show.razor Show 1 developer
  • Pages/Developers/Create.razor Create developer
  • Pages/Developers/Edit.razor Edit developer
  • Pages/Developers/Delete.razor Delete developer

Component Naming Conventions

Blazer pages and components should always use PascalCase naming.

<MyComponent />


Route Parameters

Parameters can be passed into a Blazor page through the url. For example, lets say you have a page to show the details about a developer.

You can setup a route parameter in your URL to pass in the Id. Then setup a public property in your Blazor page with the same name.

@page "/developers/{Id:int}"

@if (developer != null) {

@code {
    public int Id { get; set; }
	private Developer developer { get; set; }
	protected override async Task OnInitializedAsync()
		developer = await _developerService.Get(Id);

Route parameter names are case insensitive.

Page title and metadata

You can set a Blazor pages <title> element by using the PageTitle component.

@page "/developers"

<PageTitle>This is the developers page</PageTitle>

To set metadata, like the pages description, use the HeadContent component.

@page "/developers"

<PageTitle>This is the developers page</PageTitle>
    <meta name="description" content="This is a page that shows all the developers.">


By default, Spark apps use the render-mode of server. This means any code in your razor pages and components isn’t ran until the SignalR connection is setup by the browser.

This has 1 downside, search engines will not be able to index your content. If SEO is important in your app, you will want to update the render-mode to ServerPrerendered.

You can do this by updating the render mode in Pages/_Layout.cshtml to:

<component type="typeof(HeadOutlet)" render-mode="ServerPrerendered" />

and updating the render mode in Pages/_Host.cshtml to:

<component type="typeof(App)" render-mode="ServerPrerendered" />

Using the render mode of ServerPrerendered has 1 side effect.

Any code in your razor pages or components will be ran twice. Once on the server and once when the page is loaded in the browser.

Blazor pages use standard html anchor elements to navigate to other Blazor pages.

@page "/developers"

<a href="/">Go to home page</a>
