Build Compelling Websites with ASP.NET
Building websites should be easy. WebMatrix's new, easy-to-use ASP.NET Web Pages and other tools, makes it as easy as it should be.
Lightweight Coding Syntax
ASP.NET Web Pages is easy to learn and lets you transition effortlessly between HTML and server side code. Creating layouts lets you avoid writing repetitive markup and minimizes the number of characters you need to enter.
Web Helpers jump-start your use of common services such as Twitter, ReCaptcha, Gravatars, Bing maps, and many others.
Extend with NuGet
WebMatrix takes advantage of the full power of the NuGet Gallery. The NuGet gallery has over 6,000 packages that help you integrate Facebook, debug your applications, and much, much more.
To make databases easy, WebMatrix uses SQL Server Compact Edition, an integrated lightweight database engine, and fully supports SQL Server and MySQL. You can create, edit, and delete database schema and data directly within WebMatrix.
Publish to the Cloud
You can publish your ASP.NET website to Windows Azure or any hosting provider that supports FTP or Web Deploy.
