  • ComputeSharp

    A .NET library to run C# code in parallel on the GPU through DX12, D2D1, and dynamically generated HLSL compute and pixel shaders, with the goal of making GPU computing easy to use for all .NET developers! 🚀

    Project mention: Is there a real time graphics llibrary in c# | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2023-05-17

    A couple other options than what has been suggested so far: - TerraFX.Interop.Windows. Raw, blittable, 1:1 bindings for all Win32, D2D/D3D11/D3D12 APIs (there's also a version with Vulkan bindings). As close to doing #include as you can get in C#. This is my personal favorite, I use it in my own ComputeSharp library, and transitively we use it in the Microsoft Store too 🙂 - Silk.NET another version of high-performance bindings, more opinionated than TerraFX and with some additional helpers to make it a bit easier to use.

  • Maui

    The .NET MAUI Community Toolkit is a community-created library that contains .NET MAUI Extensions, Advanced UI/UX Controls, and Behaviors to help make your life as a .NET MAUI developer easier (by CommunityToolkit)

    Project mention: Trying to use interaction triggers in WPF but I get an error message | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2023-05-24

    There's a host of "community toolkits" for various XAML frameworks and it's possible I"m a bit out of date and behaviors moved to one of those. I can't find one for WPF, but for example this is the MAUI one and it has an extensive collection of behaviors. (Those only work in MAUI though, "for reasons" there's not one consistent way to cross-framework develop behaviors.)

  • ambie

  • scanner

    An all-in-one scanner app built for the Universal Windows Platform

    Project mention: Photo restoration & upscaling | reddit.com/r/photoshop | 2023-01-28

    Actually that was my first thought to achieve my end goal. Unfortunately I'm using an old scanner (CanoScan Lide 90) that isn't supported by any working drivers. The only way I got it to work was to use "Scanner" - https://github.com/simon-knuth/scanner , the downside was for some odd reason, it only supports scanning to a maximum of 600 dpi.
