This document is for .NET developers who would like to understand or contribute to the Photino.NET project. It is a reference implementation of the Photino.Native project for the .NET development platform.
If Blazor UIs are desired, please see the Photino.Blazor documentation which builds on Photino.NET.
NOTE: Photino.Blazor is no longer being maintained by this group. We envision it be superceded by .NET 6 and MAUI (Xamarin Forms vNext).
The Visual Studio solution source code can be found in the GitHub repository and you can download a .zip file from there.
If you just want to use the Photino.NET component, download or install the NuGet package. If you only want to build and run Photino.Net-based projects, we recommend you install the Project Templates for Visual Studio and/or for dotnet CLI & VS Code as described here
The GitHub repository includes .yml files for automated CI/CD builds, packaging and deployments via Azure DevOps Pipelines. Please refer to these files for the latest information on dependencies and build commands.
Use standard Visual Studio build procedures for Visual Studio. If you're using the dotnet CLI (with or without VS CODE), use the standard
dotnet build, and
dotnet run commands.
