What is the better ways of adding UWP to Grial-UI #367
Sorry for the delay.
There are 3 main challenges in order to run Grial in UWP:
Solving 1 and 2 is a must, if not runtime exceptions will be thrown as soon as you run your app. The absence of custom renderers (3) will cause visual issues but should not tear down your app. So you can leave those for a second round.
In order to run Grial in UWP you will need to:
After doing the above you should be able to run the UWP version of the project. Since there are no custom renderers there are several stuff that will not look good, still you should be able to see most of the screens if not all.

@chrisgate, @TopperDEL UWP is always on the table when we discuss what's next. There are some customers (as you guys) asking for it, but not enough for it to jump to the top of the backlog. What we provide here is just a workaround to be able to execute Grial in the context of UWP. We do not support UWP. Making it official implies a considerable amount of work on implementing it, testing it, etc.
If you want to go through the UWP path you will need to implement several things on your own. We can help you providing guidance. Some customers had gone in that direction and succeeded.
@chrisgate I can't find your email based on your Github user. Please write me an email to l r o d r i g u e z at uxdivers.com and I will answer back sharing this stuff.
@chrisgate I managed to get UWP working but currently only with an older Grial- and Xamarin-Version. I would have to create a new solution and add grial manually to get it possibly working with the latest versions. But by downgrading I could use the ready-prepared grial-solution they provide. So far everything is working and I'm happy. I would love to see UWP officially supported, though, but I also understand Leo's comment.
