Win Application Framework (WAF)
Successor of the WPF Application Framework
The Win Application Framework (WAF) is a lightweight Framework that helps you to create well-structured XAML Applications (MAUI, Xamarin, WPF, WinUI). It supports you in applying various architectural patterns:
How to get started?
- WAF comes with realistic real-world sample applications. Please have a look at them. See Sample Applications below.
- The Wiki provides further guidance.
- **.Core* (.NET Standard 2.0 and .NET Framework 4.6.1): Support for all .NET based applications.
- **.Wpf* (.NET Core 3.1 and .NET Framework 4.6.1): Extended support for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
