Book Description

An evolution of Xamarin.Forms, .NET MAUI is a cross-platform framework for creating native mobile and desktop apps with C# and XAML. Using .NET MAUI, you can develop apps that’ll run on Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows from a single shared codebase. In this revised edition of .NET MAUI Cross-Platform Application Development you will be introduced to .NET 8 and get up to speed with app development in no time. The book begins by showing you how to develop a cross-platform application using .NET MAUI, including guidance for migrating from Xamarin.Forms. You’ll gain all the knowledge needed to create a cross-platform application for Android, iOS, the mac OS, and Windows following an example project step by step. As you advance, you’ll integrate the latest frontend technology into your app using Blazor components, including the new Blazor Bindings feature. After this, you’ll learn how to test and deploy your apps. With new coverage on creating mock .NET MAUI components, you can develop unit tests for your application. You will additionally learn how to perform Razor component testing using bUnit. By the end of this book, you’ll have learned how to develop your own cross-platform applications using .NET MAUI.

What you will learn

  • Develop high-performance apps with logical user interfaces
  • Improve the maintainability of apps using the MVVM design pattern
  • Understand the progression from Xamarin.Forms and how to migrate to .NET
  • Delve into templated components and Razor class libraries for crafting Blazor UI elements
  • Publish your creations to major app stores with guidance on preparation and processes
  • Extend your testing repertoire with bUnit for Razor components for reliable unit testing

Who this book is for

This book is for mobile developers interested in cross-platform application development with working experience of the .NET Core framework, as well as junior engineers who’ve just begun their career in mobile app development. Native app developers (desktop) or Xamarin developers who want to migrate to .NET MAUI will also benefit from this book. Basic knowledge of modern object-oriented programming languages, such as C#, Java or Kotlin, is assumed.
