Xamarin.Forms Samples

The samples in this repository demonstrate how to use different aspects of Xamarin.Forms to build cross-platform apps. Please visit the Xamarin.Forms sample gallery to download individual samples.

License

See the license file and any additional license information attached to each sample.

Samples Submission Guidelines

This repository welcomes contributions and suggestions. If you want to create a new sample, you need to work with an employee to help bring the new sample into the repository. Start by raising a GitHub issue in this repository that outlines your proposed sample. Please note that samples in the MASTER branch of this repository shouldn't rely on preview or pre-release NuGet packages.

The Xamarin.Forms sample gallery is powered by this repository, and therefore each sample needs to comply with the following requirements:

  • Screenshots - a folder called Screenshots that has at least one screen shot of the sample on each platform (preferably a screen shot for every page or every major piece of functionality). For an example of this, see TodoREST.

  • Readme - a README.md file that has the name of the sample, a description, and author attribution. For an example of this, see TodoREST.

  • Metadata - a Metadata.xml file that has the following information:

    • ID - a GUID for the sample.

    • IsFullApplication - a boolean value that indicates whether the sample is a full app, which could be submitted to an app store, or a feature sample.

    • Brief - a short description of what the sample does.

    • Level - the intended audience level for the sample: Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced. Only the getting started samples are Beginner, as they are intended for people who are just starting with the platform. Most samples are Intermediate, and a few, that dive deep into difficult APIs, should be Advanced.

    • Minimum License Requirement - Starter, Indie, Business, or Enterprise: denotes the license that a user has to have in order to build and run the sample.

    • Tags: a list of relevant tags for the app. These are:

      • Animation
      • Behaviors
      • Custom Renderers
      • Data
      • Dependencey Service
      • Effects
      • Games
      • Getting Started
      • Graphics
      • Navigation
      • Styles
      • Templates
      • Text
      • Touch
      • User Interface
      • Web Services
      • Xamarin Live Player
      • Xamarin.Forms
      • XAML
    • SupportedPlatforms: a comma-separated list of the supported platforms. Valid values are currently iOS, Android, and Windows.

    • Gallery: a boolean value that indicates whether the sample should appear in the Xamarin.Forms sample gallery.

    For an example of a Metadata.xml file, see TodoREST.

  • Buildable solution and .csproj file - the project must build and have the appropriate project scaffolding (solution + .csproj).

This approach ensures that all samples integrate with the Xamarin.Forms sample gallery.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on the Xamarin Forums.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
