Introduction

Republished with Permission - Original Article

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.
