    Project mention: How exactly does Unity integrate with IDEs - how does the editor build work? | /r/Unity3D | 2023-07-23

    In the video you basically install .NET 7.0 SDK with the deb packages from Microsoft repos AND mono deb packages from repos laid out in https://www.mono-project.com/ apart from Unity and VS Code. And then you configure VS Code so that it always uses Mono installed in the system (not Unity Editor's own instance???)

  • Uno Platform

    Project mention: A Proposal for an asynchronous Rust GUI framework | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-03

  • ReactiveUI

    An advanced, composable, functional reactive model-view-viewmodel framework for all .NET platforms that is inspired by functional reactive programming. ReactiveUI allows you to abstract mutable state away from your user interfaces, express the idea around a feature in one readable place and improve the testability of your application.

    Project mention: Humble Chronicles: Managing State with Signals | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-05-19

    ReactiveUI is based on Rx and very popular in the .Net world: https://www.reactiveui.net/.

  • Refit

    The automatic type-safe REST library for .NET Core, Xamarin and .NET. Heavily inspired by Square's Retrofit library, Refit turns your REST API into a live interface.

    Project mention: Http calls on mobile, what is the preferred way / best practice | /r/dotnetMAUI | 2023-07-11

    Another question that rises is, would it be better to use some HttpClient package to handle the requests, like Refit in combination with Polly. But then again, it seems Refit also uses the HttpClient factory, which was a bad thing according to the previous?

  • NLog

    NLog - Advanced and Structured Logging for Various .NET Platforms

    Project mention: Logging in ASP.NET | dev.to | 2023-05-24


  • Xamarin.Forms

  • MessagePack for C# (.NET, .NET Core, Unity, Xamarin)

    Extremely Fast MessagePack Serializer for C#(.NET, .NET Core, Unity, Xamarin). / msgpack.org[C#]

    Project mention: Fury: 170x faster than JDK, fast serialization powered by JIT and Zero-copy | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-07

    Given it's a binary serialization framework, it should not be too difficult, because the domain is well-explored and numerous libraries exist in C# which address same goals that Fury does.

    More popular/newer examples are https://github.com/Cysharp/MemoryPack (which is similar to Fury with its own spec, C#-code first schema), https://github.com/MessagePack-CSharp/MessagePack-CSharp or even gRPC / Protobuf tooling https://github.com/grpc/grpc-dotnet

  • xamarin-forms-samples

    Project mention: Any language for Mac and PC? | /r/learnprogramming | 2023-02-01

    For MVVM-based UI it looks like this could help: https://github.com/MvvmCross/MvvmCross

  • SkiaSharp

    SkiaSharp is a cross-platform 2D graphics API for .NET platforms based on Google's Skia Graphics Library. It provides a comprehensive 2D API that can be used across mobile, server and desktop models to render images.

    Project mention: Jellyfin: The Free Software Media System | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-06-18

    It looks like the port was compiled with a binary SkiaSharp [0] since that requires Google tooling to build. Interesting to see the committer allowing this. Apparently it is not the first time.
