❗ This project is not actively maintained. Consider using the handlers Xamarin provides. ❗
This library brings the latest platform-specific networking libraries to Xamarin applications via a custom HttpClient handler. Write your app using System.Net.Http, but drop this library in and it will go drastically faster. This is made possible by two native libraries:
- On iOS, NSURLSession
- On Android, via OkHttp
The good news is, you don't have to know either of these two libraries above, using ModernHttpClient is the most boring thing in the world. Here's how it works:
var httpClient = new HttpClient(new NativeMessageHandler());
How can I use this in a PCL?
Just reference the Portable version of ModernHttpClient in your Portable Library, and it will use the correct version on all platforms.
Why doesn't this build in Xamarin Studio? What gives?
