About

Avalonia is a WPF/UWP-inspired cross-platform XAML-based UI framework providing a flexible styling system and supporting a wide range of Operating Systems such as Windows (.NET Framework, .NET Core), Linux (via Xorg), MacOS and with experimental support for Android and iOS.

Avalonia is ready for General-Purpose Desktop App Development. However there may be some bugs and breaking changes as we continue along into this project's development. To see the status for some of our features, please see our Roadmap here.

Getting Started

Avalonia Visual Studio Extension contains project and control templates that will help you get started. After installing it, open "New Project" dialog in Visual Studio, choose "Avalonia" in "Visual C#" section, select "Avalonia .NET Core Application" and press OK (screenshot). Now you can write code and markup that will work on multiple platforms!

For those without Visual Studio, starter guide for .NET Core CLI can be found here.

Avalonia is delivered via NuGet package manager. You can find the packages here: (stable(ish), nightly)

Use these commands in Package Manager console to install Avalonia manually:

Install-Package Avalonia
Install-Package Avalonia.Desktop

Bleeding Edge Builds

or use nightly build feeds as described here: https://github.com/AvaloniaUI/Avalonia/wiki/Using-nightly-build-feed

Documentation

You can take a look at the getting started page for an overview of how to get started but probably the best thing to do for now is to already know a little bit about WPF/Silverlight/UWP/XAML and ask questions in our Gitter room.

There's also a high-level architecture document that is currently a little bit out of date, and I've also started writing blog posts on Avalonia at http://grokys.github.io/.

Contributions for our docs are always welcome!
