MvvmCross vNext

This project provides a cross-platform mvvm mobile development framework built on top of Silverlight for WP7, Mono for Android and MonoTouch for iOS, and the WinRT XAML framework for Windows 8 Store applications.

This project makes extensive use of Portable Class Libraries to provide maintainable cross platform C# native applications.

Getting started

For an overview of how I personally develop, see http://slodge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/azure-to-wpmonodroidmonotouch-video-of.html or:

For a list of all sorts of resources, questions and answers, see http://slodge.blogspot.co.uk/p/mvvmcross-quicklist.html

For setting up your development environment to support portable libraries, see the steps in http://slodge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/mvvmcross-vnext-portable-class.html

To learn about what MVVM is... please look at this introduction from Infragistics http://blogs.infragistics.com/blogs/anand_raja/archive/2012/02/20/the-model-view-viewmodel-101-part-1.aspx and http://blogs.infragistics.com/blogs/anand_raja/archive/2012/03/06/introduction-to-the-model-view-viewmodel-pattern-part-2.aspx.

For some background on Portable Libraries see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dsplaisted/archive/2012/08/27/how-to-make-portable-class-libraries-work-for-you.aspx

http://vimeo.com/39019207 provides a video of me talking about this project (with poor noise quality - sorry...)

For more presentations (without sound) see http://www.slideshare.net/cirrious/

MvvmCross made it briefly to Channel9 - see http://slodge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/mvvmcross-on-channel9.html

To see how MvvmCross provides ViewModels, Views and bindings, see the samples within this project. This really is the best "Getting Started" information available.

About MvvmCross...

This project was born from:

Here is the framework in action for the sqlbits conference app: sql bits

Public projects that have used this framework include:

vNext

This is the second version of the MvvmCross platform - vNext.

This version specifically provides:

  • the same databinding and viewmodel framework from the original MvvmCross release
  • an increase of code sharing through the use of portable class libraries
  • a new plugin structure which makes it easy to consume and to reuse platform-specific code within your views and viewmodels

The motivation for the changes between version 1 and vNext are summarised in: http://www.slideshare.net/cirrious/mvvm-cross-going-portable

If you are looking for the "old" version of MvvmCross, then it's still available and still receiving updates on the master branch at https://github.com/slodge/MvvmCross/tree/master

What's here...

Currently included:

  • Mono for Android
  • MonoTouch
  • WindowsPhone (mainly WP7)
  • WinRT
  • some Console/NUnit work (although this is not supported as a full deployment target currently)

Samples:

  • Book sample
  • Conference sample
  • CustomerManagement sample
  • Tutorial sample
  • TwitterSearch sample
