gRPC-Web is becoming increasingly popular in the .NET world and, of course, in Blazor.

But not only the technology, also the tooling for gRPC-Web has an important role. For some time now, there has been a Chrome browser extension for the gRPC-Web Developer Tools.

I have made it my task to make this incredibly useful tool also usable for Blazor 😃

Getting started


You need .NET 6.0 or newer to use this library.

Download .NET 6

You also need the gRPC-Web Developer Tools Chrome Extsion

Install gRPC-Web Developer Tools

Platform support

The gRPC-Web Developer Tools only available for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browser.


You can install the package via NuGet with the Package Manager in your IDE or alternatively using the command line:

dotnet add package Thinktecture.Blazor.GrpcWebDevTools


The package can be used in Blazor WebAssembly projects.

Enable gRPC-Web Developer Tools on your project

At first you have to register a GrpcChannel in your ServiceCollection like this:

builder.Services.AddScoped(services =>
    var channel = GrpcChannel.ForAddress(backendUrl, 
        new GrpcChannelOptions 
            HttpHandler = new GrpcWebHandler(GrpcWebMode.GrpcWeb, new HttpClientHandler()) 
    return channel;

Then you can add your gRPC-Services with the extension method AddGrpcService<T>:


To enable the gRPC-Web Developer Tools on your project you have two opportunities:

  • First you can enable them via the AppSettings:
  "GrpcDevToolsEnabled": true
  • Or you can enable them with the extension method EnableGrpcWebDevTools in your Program.cs:
