I often find myself changing the views markup on my personal website, as they are compiled into a dll it means I have to use VS to make the changes and republish. Is it possible to have the *.cshtml files published uncompiled so I can simply edit it them on the server.

Hope this makes sense

What I have tried:

Googling and the usual stuff - why does what have you tried have to be between 30 and 50000 characters :-)

If "What I have tried" is less than 30 characters, it probably means the poster has not tried anything. Fortunately your skills at CCC mark you out as a definite trier. :)

Other way round now. :(

Build-time and publish-time compilation of Razor files is enabled by default by the Razor SDK. When enabled, runtime compilation complements build-time compilation, allowing Razor files to be updated if they're edited.

Hi Richard I had to add this to the csproj file - all is good now

<PropertyGroup>    <PreserveCompilationContext>true</PreserveCompilationContext>    <MvcRazorCompileOnPublish>false</MvcRazorCompileOnPublish>    <CopyRazorGenerateFilesToPublishDirectory>true</CopyRazorGenerateFilesToPublishDirectory>  </PropertyGroup>
