ASP.NET 5 New Features

The popular Microsoft web platform ASP.NET has just received a brand new update which comes with some interesting changes. Known as the APS.NET MVC 5, it delivers a top-quality programming mechanism which will enable you to build highly interactive and data-based websites.

What is ASP.NET MVC 5?

ASP.NET 5 is an open-source web framework for creating advanced and modern web applications. These web applications can be developed and run on Mac, Windows, and Linux successfully. The ASP.Net MVC 5 comes with some advanced features and provides developers with extensible and high performing model to develop modern web applications. 

New ASP.NET MVC 5 Features

Following are the fundamental new features in MVC 5 that we will be talking about in this piece.

  • Scaffolding
  • Bootstrap
  • One ASP.NET
  • Attribute Routing 
  • Filter Overriding

Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 carries a new Scaffolding structure for ASP.NET Web API 2 as well as ASP.NET MVC 5. In simple terms, Scaffolding is a mechanism of code generation developed specifically for web applications based on ASP.NET.

Through this framework, you can easily and swiftly generate interactive code that can work well with data models. It decreases the time needed to create an MVC application using standard data procedures. With Scaffolding, there is a data-first approach that makes data operations swift and code creation fast.


Twitter Bootstrap comes as a default user interface mechanism in Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 for an MVC-based application. It is a free collection of CSS and HTML-based design templates created for Twitter. They help in designing buttons, navigation, forms, tables, etc. The Bootstrap advantage allows rapid user interface development. Created with the help of basic CSS and HTML-based templates, you get a highly responsive and efficient interface.


This is a unified new project system for the benefit of .NET Web Developers. One major benefit of One ASP.NET is that it makes it easier for coders and developers to use multiple frameworks such as Web API, Web Forms, and MVC within a single project. In other words, One ASP.NET enables you to utilize stuff like ASP.NET Web Forms, MVC, SignalR, and ASP.NET Web in a single web application.

Attribute Routing

The best feature of ASP.NET MVC is its routing feature. As the name suggests attributes are used to define routes. With the attribute routing feature, you can specify your routes by annotating your actions and controllers. It provides you more control over the URIs in your web applications. Convention based routing is still supported in the MVC., in fact, both of the techniques can be used to develop the web applications by the developers.

Filter Overriding

With ASP.Net MVC 5 new feature of filter overriding, you can clear or change specific filters types from the global filter or control level filter. Override filters are a set of filter types that should not run for a given scope that can be either an or a controller. This allows you to add global filters, but then exclude some from specific actions or controllers”.

Parting Thought

ASP.NET MVC 5 allows users to build highly dynamic and interactive websites with the help of Model-View-Controller. The focus here is on building a clean architecture together with test-focused development for the best results. It is a really good tool for IT professionals, especially coders and developers because it can enhance their work efficiency significantly.
