Awesome UWP resources - inspired by Awesome .NET.

Contributions are welcome - any kind of library/software/resource is accepted. The goal is the same as the other lists': build a community-driven collection of resources. Before submitting a PR please check our guidelines.

Application framework

  • PRISM - Prism is a framework for building loosely coupled, maintainable, and testable XAML applications in WPF, Windows 10 UWP, and Xamarin Forms.
