This project provides a cross-platform mvvm mobile development framework built on top of:

  • Silverlight for WP7, WP8
  • Mono for Android (or Xamarin.Android)
  • MonoTouch for iOS (or Xamarin.iOS)
  • the WinRT XAML framework for Windows 8 Store apps.
  • Windows Universal projects (WPA8.1 and Windows 8.1 Store apps)

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

Ninja Plugin

I have started a tutorial series entitled N+1 Days of MvvmCross starting with the basics of your first MvvmCross application and covering lists, commands, binding, and more with samples for each device. The code for N+1 Days of MvvmCross is available on GitHub

About MvvmCross...

This project was born from:

  • a fork once long ago of the MonoCross project, moving away from MVC and towards MVVM
  • an extension project from
  • some ideas from MvvmLight
  • some ideas from ASP.NET MVC
  • some ideas from OpenNetCF (Phone7.Fx)
  • lots of my own ideas - and my blog

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

How to get involved

If you have questions, then please ask them on StackOverflow with tag MvvmCross

Alternatively, people on Xamarin Forums can be very helpful

There is a Jabbr room - on #mvvmcross - but please ask questions on StackOverflow if you can - this helps make the questions and the answers better!

If I haven't seen your question and no-one else has helped, then you can also contact me - me at slodge dot com - but please be patient with me if I'm busy with work.

If you need professional support, then please do contact me - I work freelance and can assist. Please do consider hiring me - everyone likes 'free', but I'm worth paying for :)

If you find bugs or have feature requests, then please report them through GitHub -

If you would like to help make MvvmCross even better, then please do:

  • new code - including pull requests via GitHub - or you can fork the project and build your own extensions
  • new plugins - can be hosted in your own repositories
  • please do blog about your adventures with MvvmCross - we're currently very light on documentation!
  • if you use the framework, then please let me know - we love to see what people are doing with it.
