  • 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 UWP Community Toolkit

    The Windows Community Toolkit is a collection of helpers, extensions, and custom controls. It simplifies and demonstrates common developer tasks building UWP and .NET apps for Windows 10. The toolkit is part of the .NET Foundation.

    Project mention: Automated nameof(Field) | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-11-19

    See types like ObservableObject here for far-flung examples with all the bells and whistles you'd ever need.

  • GitHub repo Windows UI Library

    Windows UI Library: the latest Windows 10 native controls and Fluent styles for your applications

    Project mention: Redesigned Notepad for Windows 11 | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-12-07

    Yes, because WinUI is a clusterfuck so they need to keep using what they have.

    Currently 2307 issues open, https://github.com/microsoft/microsoft-ui-xaml/issues

    And this is just one repo, then you can hop into C#/WinRT, AppSDK, C++/WinRT ones as well.

    Hence why they keep releasing WinUI 2.x series, although 2.6 was supposed to be the very last one before WinUI 3.0 goes stable.

    However if you go to the community meetings everything is rosy and we should all be jumping into WinUI 3.0.

  • GitHub repo MVVMCross

    The .NET MVVM framework for cross-platform solutions, including Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Windows and Mac.

  • GitHub repo LCUI

    A small C library for building user interfaces with C, XML and CSS.

    Project mention: C in Web Dev | reddit.com/r/C_Programming | 2021-12-04

    https://github.com/lc-soft/LCUI seems kind of interesting, but haven't tried it.

  • GitHub repo react-native-share

    Social share, sending simple data to other apps.

    Project mention: Receive in Share extension (iOS) and Share Intent (android) | reddit.com/r/reactnative | 2021-12-02
  • GitHub repo ProjectReunion

    Project mention: What is the main framework used for making desktop windows apps? | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-12-05

    If you have further questions, I highly encourage you start a discussion on the Windows App SDK repository where you'll get answers from the folks leading this effort, rather than, well, the Microsoft Store team.

  • GitHub repo MQTTnet

    MQTTnet is a high performance .NET library for MQTT based communication. It provides a MQTT client and a MQTT server (broker). The implementation is based on the documentation from http://mqtt.org/.

    Project mention: ESP32 MQTT with Firebase | reddit.com/r/esp32 | 2021-09-12

    For example, I used MQTTnet which is a very nice (high performance & extensible) library. And it's free/open source. If you're not writing your server code in .NET, then look for whatever broker libraries are available on your server platform.

  • 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 WindowsTemplateStudio

    Windows Template Studio quickly builds a UWP app, using a wizard-based UI to turn your needs into a foundation of Windows 10 patterns and best practices.

    Project mention: Lets talk about Maui is it near ready? Preview 7 | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-09-17

    Not sure if they have plans to support MAUI or not (there is an open issue asking about it), but they do support WPF today.

  • GitHub repo FluentFTP

    An FTP and FTPS client for .NET & .NET Standard, optimized for speed. Provides extensive FTP commands, File uploads/downloads, SSL/TLS connections, Automatic directory listing parsing, File hashing/checksums, File permissions/CHMOD, FTP proxies, FXP support, UTF-8 support, Async/await support, Powershell support and more. Written entirely in C#, with no external dependencies.

    Project mention: Issues FTP/PS | reddit.com/r/PowerShell | 2021-05-31

    The PSFTP module is dependent upon System.Net.FtpWebRequest underneath. I believe this has some issues but, unfortunately, is also no longer under any development by MS. I believe they acknowledge there are known bugs for certain scenarios so it may not work but won’t be fixed. I believe that official recommendation is to look for a third-party alternative library! Consider https://github.com/robinrodricks/FluentFTP I believe that is a highly recommended library. Of course this is not a wrapped up PowerShell module like PSFTP, per se, but if you look in the Powershell folder of the git you will find example of usages. Also see here https://github.com/robinrodricks/FluentFTP/issues/434 the library can be used from PowerShell. Likely there are other alternatives too, but fundamentally you probably cannot use the native .Net Framework dependency. I believe newer .Net has superseded all this with entirely different API but that is likely not suitable for your current usage hence the third-party alternative as a recommendation.

  • GitHub repo DirectXTK

    The DirectX Tool Kit (aka DirectXTK) is a collection of helper classes for writing DirectX 11.x code in C++

    Project mention: How do I get started with Frank Luna's DX11 book? | reddit.com/r/GraphicsProgramming | 2021-11-04
  • GitHub repo Unigram

    Telegram for Windows 10

    Project mention: [Q] Secret chat for Telegram desktop? | reddit.com/r/Telegram | 2021-05-09

    It's third-party UWP app, but it's open-source and listed on official Telegram website, so it's safe.

  • 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 XamarinCommunityToolkit

    The Xamarin Community Toolkit is a collection of Animations, Behaviors, Converters, and Effects for mobile development with Xamarin.Forms. It simplifies and demonstrates common developer tasks building iOS, Android, and UWP apps with Xamarin.Forms.

    Project mention: Ripple effect in Xamarin.Android | dev.to | 2021-07-04

    If you want your controls to have ripple effect in Xamarin.Android you can use the TouchEffect from the Xamarin Community Toolkit, for most use cases it should work well.

  • 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.
