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

    Unlike other solutions like Uno Platform that also target Linux (as a Skia backend) and browsers (using WebAssembly), you can utilize MAUI and Blazor to target browsers. Not sure if there is a solution in the works to target Linux at all for MAUI.

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
