One of the things my team has been working on has been a new
view engine option for ASP.NET.
ASP.NET MVC has always supported the concept of "view
engines" – which are the pluggable modules that implement different
template syntax options. The “default” view engine for ASP.NET MVC today
uses the same .aspx/.ascx/.master file templates as ASP.NET Web Forms.
Other popular ASP.NET MVC view engines used today include Spark and NHaml.
The new view-engine option we've been working on is
optimized around HTML generation using a code-focused templating approach. The
codename for this new view engine is "Razor", and we'll be shipping
the first public beta of it shortly.
