    The Windows App SDK empowers all Windows desktop apps with modern Windows UI, APIs, and platform features, including back-compat support, shipped via NuGet.

    Project mention: For the past year and a half I've been working on Wintoys, an app that let's you experience Windows in your way and keep it fresh everyday while having everything you need in one place | /r/Windows10 | 2023-05-06

    Development for WinAppSdk and WinUI 3 is also very slow and Microsoft seems to not want to push it and invest more developers into it for some reason. They try to improve the framework, is just it's a small team. For example it was a headacke to apply the Mica backgrop and required unmanaged code, they made it simpler and reduced it to a line of code but it took months. I have 2 out of 7 issues fixed on WinAppSdk repository and 0 out of 8 issues fixed in the WinUI 3 repository (some of the older than a year). This are just my issues, there are many other opened by other developers. So yeah, it wasn't fun at all. PoweshellSDK had an issue with the Import-Module command and it wasn't fixed for more than a year and probably won't be ever fixed, but I'm glad I found a workaround, even more clean and more safe, otherwise I couldn't have added the posibility to uninstall and change Store apps.

    Project mention: Windows11-ish file explorer | /r/Windows11 | 2022-12-12

    If the mica doesn't apply for the entire window consistently even after enabling the above said option, then you can use ExplorerFrame! It is an experimental project, but it has worked consistently for me (Sidenote: You have to use dark mode for this to work properly, for now at least).
