Xamarin.Forms Demo Apps
Many of the Xamarin.Forms samples in this repo are discussed in Intro_To_Xamarin.Forms.pdf document.
EmployeeDirectoryXaml - port of the existing Xamarin Employee Directory sample… (uses PCLStorage Nuget). Still in-progress.
Evolve13 - port of the Xamarin Evolve conference app used last year (uses SQLite.Net-PCL Nuget), using the MasterDetailPage.
FormsBasics - simple explanations of basic Xamarin.Forms concepts like views, controls and layouts.
HttpClient - simple example of using HttpClient for network communication with Xamarin.Forms.
PlatformSpecific - simple examples of how to do various platform-specific operations (in code and in XAML).
RestaurantGuide - how to render HTML using Razor templates and the Xamarin.Forms
Roget1911 - port of an old Silverlight sample, demonstrating a deep navigation structure generated from parsed XML files (uses PCLStorage Nuget).
Todo - simple todo list application that demonstrates how to load a pre-populated database and then read and write data to it (uses SQLite.Net-PCL Nuget). Also shows how to add platform-specific code to a Xamarin.Forms app, by implementing the text-to-speech engines on iOS and Android.
TodoAzure - same todo list application logic XAML, and using Windows Azure Mobile Services for cloud data storage (Windows Azure Nuget/Component).
TodoAzureSync - same todo list application logic XAML, and using Windows Azure Mobile Services offline sync component for cloud data storage (Windows Azure Nuget/Component).
TodoL10nResx - todo list that is localized/globalized using RESX files.
TodoL10nVernacular - todo list that is localized/globalized using Vernacular.
TodoMvvm - same todo list application logic, demonstrating Mvvm architecture with Xamarin.Forms. Uses data-binding and the command pattern to wire up model, view and view model objects (uses SQLite.Net-PCL Nuget).
TodoParse - similar to the Azure examples but uses Parse instead.
TodoXaml - same todo list application logic, but using XAML to declaratively build the screen layouts (rather than C# code, uses SQLite.Net-PCL Nuget).
- TicTacForms - simple tic tac toe game ~ still under development…
