For tutorials,examples and support,please see the project.You can also discuss the project in the Unity Forums.

The plugin is compatible with MacOSX,Windows,Linux,UWP,IOS and Android,and provides all the source code of the project.

Tested in Unity 3D on the following platforms:

    The configuration of trampolines is not necessary now, but in the early versions of Unity3d,if not configured, it will cause the game to crash on the iOS platform.

Quick Start

Create a view and view model of the progress bar.

public class ProgressBarViewModel : ViewModelBase
    private string tip;
    private bool enabled;
    private float value;
    public ProgressBarViewModel()

    public string Tip
        get { return this.tip; }
        set { this.Set<string>(ref this.tip, value, nameof(Tip)); }

    public bool Enabled
        get { return this.enabled; }
        set { this.Set<bool>(ref this.enabled, value, nameof(Enabled)); }

    public float Value
        get { return this.value; }
        set { this.Set<float>(ref this.value, value, nameof(Value)); }

public class ProgressBarView : UIView
    public GameObject progressBar;
    public Text progressTip;
    public Text progressText;
    public Slider progressSlider;

    protected override void Awake()
        var bindingSet = this.CreateBindingSet<ProgressBar, ProgressBarViewModel>();

        bindingSet.Bind(this.progressBar).For(v => v.activeSelf).To(vm => vm.Enabled).OneWay();
        bindingSet.Bind(this.progressTip).For(v => v.text).To(vm => vm.Tip).OneWay();
        bindingSet.Bind(this.progressText).For(v => v.text)
            .ToExpression(vm => string.Format("{0:0.00}%", vm.Value * 100)).OneWay();
        bindingSet.Bind(this.progressSlider).For(v => v.value).To(vm => vm.Value).OneWay();



  • Loxodon Framework Localization For CSV

    It supports localization files in csv format, requires Unity2018.4 or higher.

  • Loxodon Framework XLua

    It supports making games with lua scripts.

    • Installation

      • You can download the latest version of xlua from Xlua's Github repository,the file name is usually, unzip and copy it to your project.XLua Download

      • Configure a macro definition called "XLUA" in PlayerSetting/Scripting Defin Symbols.It is recommended to configure all platforms.

      • Find Loxodon.Framework.XLua.unitypackage in the LoxodonFramework/Docs/XLua directory and import it into the project.

      • In Unity2018 and above, if you use .net 4.x and .net standard 2.0, there will be compatibility issues. Please see the xlua's FAQs. XLua FAQ

      • Please see the example in the LoxodonFramework/Lua/Examples directory to enjoy your lua tour.

    • Lua precompilation tool

  • Loxodon Framework Bundle

    Loxodon Framework Bundle is an AssetBundle manager.It provides a functionality that can automatically manage/load an AssetBundle and its dependencies from local or remote location.Asset Dependency Management including BundleManifest that keep track of every AssetBundle and all of their dependencies. An AssetBundle Simulation Mode which allows for iterative testing of AssetBundles in a the Unity editor without ever building an AssetBundle.

    The asset redundancy analyzer can help you find the redundant assets included in the AssetsBundles.Create a fingerprint for the asset by collecting the characteristic data of the asset. Find out the redundant assets in all AssetBundles by fingerprint only supports the AssetBundle of Unity 5.6 or higher.

  • Loxodon Framework Log4Net

    This is a log plugin.It helps you to use Log4Net in the Unity3d.

  • Json.Net.Aot

    This implementation is actually a fork of the excellent work of SaladLab, Json.Net.Unity3D, and of course, the excellent work of the initial author, Newtonsoft!

  • LiteDB

    LiteDB is a small, fast and lightweight NoSQL embedded database.

  • SQLite4Unity3d

    When I started with Unity3d development I needed to use SQLite in my project and it was very hard to me to find a place with simple instructions on how to make it work. All I got were links to paid solutions on the Unity3d's Assets Store and a lot of different and complicated tutorials.

    At the end, I decided that there should be a simpler way and I created SQLite4Unity3d, a plugin that helps you to use SQLite in your Unity3d projects in a clear and easy way and works in iOS, Mac, Android and Windows projects.

    It uses the great sqlite-net library as a base so you will have Linq besides sql. For a further reference on what possibilities you have available with this library I encourage you to visit its github repository.
