    Project mention: Newbie seeking advice? | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2021-11-16

    I'd try building my own system like eshop on containers (popular in .NET world). https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/architecture/microservices/ https://github.com/dotnet-architecture/eShopOnContainers https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/architecture/cloud-native/introduce-eshoponcontainers-reference-app

  • GitHub repo Mono

    Mono open source ECMA CLI, C# and .NET implementation.

    Project mention: Can someone ELI5 the difference between c#, .net, core, etc? | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-11-11

    That's the Mono runtime that's part of .NET (i.e. the code in dotnet/runtime/src/mono). But I don't think the Mono framework (i.e. the code in mono/mono) is used for much.

  • GitHub repo 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: Beginner MVVM + Reactive Question (C# + UniRx) | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 2021-11-10

    If you're trying to use reactive with MVVM, you might have a look at ReactiveUI, an MVVM toolkit designed to work with reactive extensions. Specifically in this case, you could leverage DynamicData (RXUI's preferred method of handling collections), which lets you trigger updates based on change notification from child items, among other things. I'm still relatively new to RXUI myself, but if you have any questions I can certainly try to help a bit more.

  • GitHub repo Uno Platform

    Build Mobile, Desktop and WebAssembly apps with C# and XAML. Today. Open source and professionally supported.

    Project mention: I'm learning C# so I can make cross-platform GUIs | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-11-25

    I’ve been working on some projects lately that involves GUI applications for a Raspberry pi, WASM, and UWP. I’ve chosen to follow the Uno-Platform as my main go to although I am still experimenting. I didn’t have the best results initially using Avolonia UI on the raspberry pi although I haven’t dove as deep into it as I had the Uno-Platform. Uno has a very large and active development community and their documentation is up to date with the newest Microsoft products. This includes the team actively working on .Net 5, .Net6, .Net Maui, and WinUI3. They provide many samples on GitHub as well as useful examples written by supporters on their “blog” section over at Uno Platform Website

  • GitHub repo 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: Looking for advice on how to build out an "adapter" webAPI | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-11-23

    I personally would make an ASP.NET Core Api and use the Refit library to send HTTP Rest requests to Dynamics. It works well with DI and handles most issues you would encounter with HttpClient.

  • GitHub repo Xamarin.Forms

    Xamarin.Forms Official Home

    Project mention: Legacy Xamarin Native App, stick with Xamarin Native or change to Xamarin Forms / Maui? | reddit.com/r/xamarindevelopers | 2021-08-21

    You asked a bunch of questions there, I will try to answer them separately. 1) I am a XN expert and have a ton of experience in it, and from my research, it’s extremely difficult to get an experienced xamarin native developer. Xamarin Native is amazing experience to have, but There’s literally NO WAY left for someone to train themselves in xamarin native and I wrote about that here https://blog.devgenius.io/usingxamarinuniversitytolearnmobiledevelopment-808b6dec3e8b?sk=1c196f32400196f14dff7359f8ee51c0 So yes, I highly recommend running away from using xamarin native apps. Companies are having such a hard time finding experienced devs at regular rates. So anything is better really. 2) As to what language to select, Cross Platform >> Swift/Kotlin, these are also specialized skills that are just as rare to find both of in one senior skilled developer. Microsoft is actually putting in a lot of effort into building out the new Maui platform which is a piece of cake for xamarin forms developers to learn. There’s several migration tools already built as well, and the advantage of using Xamarin for you would be that you can keep your ViewModel layer exactly the same, you just have to build your view layer (also pretty easy to do with hot reload). Finally, it is important to note that more than 50% of ALL new mobile app development is moving towards React Native. The ability to use typescript (TS) instead of JavaScript removed the biggest negative against RN. Also keep in mind there’s no easy way of migrating from Xamarin Native to Xamarin forms except for starting a Xamarin forms app from scratch because of This issue https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/issues/8153

  • GitHub repo NLog

  • GitHub repo xamarin-forms-samples

    Sample apps built using the Xamarin.Forms framework

    Project mention: .NET MAUI: .NET Multi-Platform App UI | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-20

    > Plus you can't share UI code between Android and iOS. You still need to build the UI's natively with no code reuse.

    Utterly false - Xamarin Forms is totally cross-platform UI; you're probably mistaking it for Xamarin Native, which is used as a target renderer for each platform. Look at this sample project: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-forms-samples/tree/master...

    The .iOS and .Android project folders target each platform respectively, with a single project shared between them that defines UI that is rendered onto each platform. You claim to have experience with using it, but obviously haven't done anything even as simple as a HelloWorld.

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

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

    Project mention: What are some inconveniences with using 2FA keys? | reddit.com/r/yubikey | 2021-11-28

    Yeah, tons of sites have TOTP. Just remember to save their recovery codes when you enable TOTP. Also, I like Bitwarden Authenticator because you will back up your TOTP seeds automatically. Oh, a warning: the Android app's QR scanning is flaky . If you have an opportunity to set up TOTP on a desktop instead, that will be less aggravating.

  • GitHub repo TensorFlowSharp

    TensorFlow API for .NET languages

    Project mention: .NET Core In Artificial Intelligence Series-Overview | dev.to | 2021-08-17

    TensorFlowSharp is a TensorFlow model runtime. Compared with TensorFlow.NET, it lacks many functions such as graph calculation and training. (Github https://github.com/migueldeicaza/TensorFlowSharp)

  • GitHub repo 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.

    With the new support for native dependency for WASM and Blazor. I think it will as the sample used for that was SkiaSharp drawing using WebGL.

  • GitHub repo Caliburn.Micro

    A small, yet powerful framework, designed for building applications across all XAML platforms. Its strong support for MV* patterns will enable you to build your solution quickly, without the need to sacrifice code quality or testability.

    Project mention: 3rd party frameworks to add ease of use to XAML/WPF? | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-07-08

    I haven't done WPF/XAML stuff in years but I really liked Caliburn Micro, largely because of the convention-based auto-binding.

  • GitHub repo CppSharp

    Tools and libraries to glue C/C++ APIs to high-level languages

    Project mention: Generate your first Xamarin application with JHipster.NET | dev.to | 2021-02-26

    akavache >= 7.1.1

  • GitHub repo xamarin-macios

    Bridges the worlds of .NET with the native APIs of macOS, iOS, tvOS, and watchOS.

    Project mention: Proof of concept: iOS app written in pure Rust | reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-11-08

    I think code generation is the way to go, at least for the initial version. Apple has quite a lot of APIs, creating bindings manually is a huge undertaking. Another idea I have is to generate Rust bindings from Xamarin source code https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/tree/main/src. Xamarin has a very good coverage of the API surface, and might be even easier than generating from raw Apple's header files.

  • GitHub repo Microcharts

    Create cross-platform (Xamarin, Windows, ...) simple charts.

    Project mention: QuestPDF 2021.11 - a new version of the open-source, MIT-licensed, C# library for generating PDF documents with fluent API, now with several community-driven improvements 🎉 Please help me make it popular 🚀 | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-11-09

    That's correct. Personally, I haven't tested SVG rendering but I know that others have incorporated Skia-related libraries with great success, e.g. when integrating charts with the Microcharts library. At some point, I should add an article in the documentation about it 😁

  • GitHub repo Xamarin.Essentials

    Essential cross platform APIs for your mobile apps.

    Project mention: Can anyone clarify what this ‘Pegasus API’ is? Is this Norman on iPhone 11? | reddit.com/r/iosdev | 2021-05-21

    I don't know where you're seeing "xamarin/Essentials", but that's a repo for code used in writing cross-platform mobile applications. That message refers to this issue: https://github.com/xamarin/Essentials/pull/1457. It's something that was fixed in the project 7 months ago.
