Style an App interface or build in functionality RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys.. My first post!

    I am a web developer - last few projects I have built using .NET (Web Pages, Razor Syntax with Webmatrix/VS Studio for Web).

    I want to build an app that interfaces with one of my web applications I have already built.

    My first question is - Do I need to (for example) build my Metro app with the database information into it (for authentication) or style the app to interface with the pre-existing web application (avoids double up of code)?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Hi Aaron,

    Welcome to the forum.

    As you are experienced with HTML and Asp.net related and would like to build a web application base on a pre-existing one, I would suggest you go through the migration documentation: Migrating a web app or Migrating a website.

    I think the best practice for you is to style the app interface and querying the data AJAX, however if you are interested with Windows Store App Authentication, you can also ref to the sample: https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Web-Authentication-d0485122
