Asp.Net MVC HTML Helper Alternative

Posted by coreycoogan on June 11, 2009


I’m still learning ASP.NET MVC and gearing up for 2 projects.  At first glance of a typical View, I had a classic ASP flashback.  Now that I understand how it really works, I see that the only commonality is the use of the ASP delimiter tags (<%%>).

I’m not real crazy with the default ASP.NET MVC view engine and have examined some alternatives, such as MVC Contrib and Spark.  A new strategy has emerged however, developed by Eric Hexter.  Eric is dubbing his project Opinionated Input Builders.  It’s very early stage, but it’s definitely interesting and worth checking out.
