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.

    ReactiveUI is based on Rx and very popular in the .Net world:

    I use PropertyChanged.Fody all the time and it works fantastically and consistently for implementing INotifyPropertyChange. It is even smart enough to understand dependencies within your get/set functions (should you choose to have custom ones) and notify that property if any of it's dependent properties change. While we are on the subject, if you are using MVVM with observables, you should really check out ReactiveUI. It is wonderful.

    Personally I learned to use rx and observables by starting to use ReactiveUI combined with DynamicData for my WPF app MVVM architecture. It was maybe not to best choice out there, but I learned to work with it and some things it allows to do is awesome.
  • I want to learn WPF and was told I should use a MVVM based framework any up to date suggestions?

    My favorite framework is Reactive UI but it's a bit more advanced than most MVVM frameworks since it uses Reactive Programming. You can still try its most basic features, though.
  • Which GUI framework should I learn: WinForms, WPF, Avalonia or something else?
    3 projects | | 28 Dec 2022
    There is a lot of overlap between WPF and Avalonia so I would start with either one of those. Most certainly Avalonia if you plan to do cross platform dev. I would also highly recommend that you learn and conform to MVVM and dependency injection for your architecture in order to write clean, maintainable, and testable code. My recommendation is ReactiveUI. It leans heavily on more modern patterns like Reactive extensions and IObservable and it can do so much more than just MVVM. As such, it is also very similar to Angular so the concepts will transfer easily if you ever need to do web development. On a side note, Pluralsight has a nice quick course on SOLID design principles. If your code is a mess, it would be a good idea to take a course on this though learning MVVM will be a big step in the right direction.

    Also, about data binding and reactivity if you really enjoy WinForms, nevar forget!!
  • Getting head around {get;set} for C# Models
    2 projects | | 22 Jun 2022
    Your UI needs to bind to something that can programmatically notify it about changes, we call these things View-Models. Usually View-Models implement INotifyPropertyChanged interface (another key interface is INotifyCollectionChanged that is responsible for notifying collection views that number of items is changed and they need to update the UI accordingly). You can do that (the implementation of the interface) manually or use some library to do that for you just to cut some boilerplate code (e.g. ReactiveUI + Fody or Microsoft.Toolkit.MVVM or maybe even this or this).
  • Managing resource files for an app
    3 projects | | 22 Jun 2022
    Some projects like ReactiveUI take on a more webapp style project structure, with resources being in some static resources folder and all code being in a src folder.
  • Beginner MVVM + Reactive Question (C# + UniRx)
    2 projects | | 10 Nov 2021
    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.
