Implementing CRUD operations in your ASP.NET Core application can be a very tedious and time-consuming task. EasyData helps to add all necessary functionality (and even more) in a matter of minutes.


One of the first tasks for most business applications is to implement CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations for the main entities the app works with.

Every developer faces the following problems as part of solving the task:

  • The creation of CRUD pages and forms is very boring and time-consuming. Believe me, I’ve been there a lot of times.

  • If you do it manually, it can be very slow and error-prone (missed fields, forgotten validators, etc).

  • Of course, you can use the scaffolding tool provided by Visual Studio. However, it’s also not a quick process either, because you need to run that tool for each model class. As a result, you get many .cs and .cshtml files, which you'll have to edit manually if something in the default behavior or appearance doesn't suit your needs. In the event of changes in the model classes, you'll need to update those generated controllers and pages manually or regenerate the code and forms from scratch for each affected model class.

  • Moreover, even the built-in scaffolding doesn't provide some important, often essential functions such as paging or search.
