Uno Platform allows you to create single-codebase, cross-platform applications which run on iOS, Android, Web, macOS, Linux and Windows. You'll be creating cross-platform .NET applications with XAML and C# in no time.

The following sections will guide you through your development environment setup, a simple Hello World app, and more advanced tutorials.

To set up your development environment, first select the operating system you're developing on.

If you're developing on Windows, we recommend you use Visual Studio 2022, for the richest XAML development experience and broadest platform coverage.

If you already use and love JetBrains Rider or Visual Studio Code, you can also use them to develop Uno Platform applications. Check the support matrix below to see which target platforms they support.
