Uno Check
Announcing: uno-check – a health check for your Uno Platform dev environment

We try to make getting into Uno Platform as easy as possible, but it can be challenging to get set up for multi-platform development. Nobody wants to be fighting with their environment when they could be coding instead. For that reason, we’ve just released the uno-check dotnet command-line tool. When you run uno-check on your machine, it checks your system to make sure you have all the prerequisites for Uno Platform development installed and up to date. If it finds problems, it either offers to fix them for you, or provides instructions to fix them yourself. Once uno-check gives you the green light, you’re all ready to go. It’s similar to the ‘flutter doctor’ tool for Flutter, or maui-check for .NET MAUI. In fact, the underlying implementation of uno-check is forked from maui-check’s implementation. Shout out to Jonathan Dick aka ‘Redth’ for developing the initial maui-check solution! Here’s how it looks in action: How to run uno-check Make sure you have the dotnet SDK installed. Open a command-line prompt. If you’re on Windows, you can run Windows Terminal if you have it installed, or else Command Prompt or Windows Powershell from the Start menu. If you’re on Mac, you can

Build cross-platform LOB applications with Uno Platform and Infragistics

Microsoft’s newest UI framework – Windows UI – is how modern native Windows applications will be built moving forward. Those very same applications can be made to run on the Web, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android by using Uno Platform. What’s more, you can integrate pixel-perfect LOB Infragistics controls such as charts and target 6 platforms simultaneously with the same code-base. Join Infragistics’ Brian Lagunas and Uno Platform’s CTO Jerome Laban for an event packed with demos showcasing Uno Platform and Infragistics Controls. We will cover the why and how of Uno Platform and how to use Infragistics controls today to build single-codebase and showcase controls needed for building modern Line of Business applications which run on Web, Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android. Infragistics is a leader in providing 3rd party UI controls in Microsoft ecosystem. Their UI controls for Uno Platform are FREE while in Preview. Anyone from the community can download these great controls and start using them NOW for free. Register now March 4, 2021. 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST

Top 10 Uno Platform developments to look forward to in 2021

December is usually dominated by top-10 lists for the year that is about to pass. While Uno-wise we had a great 2020, we’d rather look forward to 2021 and define what will make it great. This list is a compilation of our team wishes, as well as early looks at the data we are gathering from our 2021 roadmap survey (still open btw). About Uno Platform For those new to Uno Platform – it allows for creation of pixel-perfect, single-source C# and XAML apps which run natively on Windows, iOS, Android, macOS, Linux and Web via WebAssembly. Uno Platform is free and Open Source (Apache 2.0) and available on GitHub. 1. UnoConf – August 2021 UnoConf will happen– be it in Montreal or online. The Canadian government estimates that most Canadians will have access to the vaccine by late summer. This likely means that borders will be open and that hosting in-person conferences will be safe. We really miss seeing you in person and we hope to host you in Montreal in August. 2. Day-0 shipping with WinUI WinUI will likely be released in the first half of 2021. Our commitment is to have Day-0 support for WinUI, enabling you to
