Avalonia - Mobile is here

Avalonia now supports iOS and Android!

Steven Kirk

Today I appeared on the famous dotnet rocks podcast.

We discussed how Avalonia is gravitating from Desktop development to include Mobile development.

As promised I have readied some templates and documentation for those early adoptors to begin testing and discovering the new possibilities this brings to Avalonia.

I have put together the following to help you get started:

  1. A sample application "Wordle-onia"

This simple port of Wordle can run on Desktop, Browser, iOS and Android.

  1. Dotnet templates to get you started easily.
dotnet new -i avalonia.templates
dotnet new avalonia.xplat
  1. Some documentation to help you get started and understand how to use the templates.

Please remember although Avalonia is a production ready environment on Desktop, we are entering the early phases for mobile. We believe now is the time that you can see the true potential of Avalonia on mobile and the performance is demonstrably excellent.

However there is still work to be done ahead of our 11.0 release planned for early Summer.

As always if you have any issues with the docs or templates.

Please join us on our telegram group so we can resolve any issues.

Have fun! Dan
