SkiaSharp is a cross-platform 2D graphics API for .NET platforms based on Google's Skia Graphics Library (https://skia.org/). It provides a comprehensive 2D API that can be used across mobile, server and desktop models to render images.
SkiaSharp provides cross-platform bindings for:
- .NET Standard 1.3
- .NET Core
- Windows Classic Desktop (Windows.Forms / WPF)
- Windows UWP (Desktop / Mobile / Xbox / HoloLens)
The API Documentation is available on the web to browse.
SkiaSharp is available as a convenience NuGet package, to use install the package like this:

Make sure the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 is installed if this error occurs on Windows:
Unable to load DLL 'libSkiaSharp.dll': The specified module could not be found.
At this point in time, we do not ship a native Linux binary in the NuGet package, but you can either download our internal Linux binaries attached to the specific release or you can build your own using the directions below.
Before building SkiaSharp:
- Python 2.7 is available in the
PATHenvironment variable on Windows
- Android NDK r14 is available in the
ANDROID_NDK_HOMEenvironment variable on macOS
- .NET Core is installed on all platforms
First, clone the repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/mono/SkiaSharp.git
Next, set up the submodules:
$ cd SkiaSharp $ git submodule update --init --recursive
Finally, build everything:
$ ./bootstrapper.sh -t everything
> .\bootstrapper.ps1 -Target everything
