WinUX UWP Toolkit
WinUX UWP is the essential toolkit to get developers started with the XAML controls, converters, behaviors, state triggers and extensions commonly used in Windows 10 app development.
I've been developing Windows apps since 2010 and with each project, I noticed a pattern of repeating similar XAML controls and extensions. This involved a lot of copy and pasting.
The aim of WinUX was to fix just that! WinUX provides a core collection of extensions to the Windows app platform to make it easier for developers to make their apps great, without the time and effort of in adding common functionality.
Information on what's contained within the toolkit will be coming soon. Please check back later.
If you're not looking to get the complete WinUX toolkit, you can easily get your hands on the core components (available on Nuget) for your Windows app needs.
Everyone is welcome to contribute towards the WinUX UWP toolkit. If you find an issue, please could you raise it in the issues section or it would be fantastic if you could have a look at rectifying the issue and submitting a pull request.
If you're looking to help out with the project, issues may be a great place to start. I'll actively monitor and review issues to make sure that quality is driven through the WinUX project.
The WinUX project has been primarily built for the universal Windows platform (UWP), so you'll need the latest version of Visual Studio 2015 (including the community edition) and the latest Windows 10 SDK which you can install as part of the Visual Studio installer.
