      This is great feedback. We are excited about the Xamarin acquisition and the .NET ecosystem around cross-platform apps. We are currently looking at this and similar feedback on how we can improve the experience of working with both Xamarin.Forms and UWP implementations of XAML.

      Anything ever gonna happen with Xamarin's ugly XAML? I've started exploring Platform.Uno, takes UWP to Android, iOS and Web!
      XAML standard looks hopeless.

          Number 1 feature! I'm watching the Build '18 sessions about UWP and I'm so jealous of the incredible features UWP offers. Unfortunately since it's Windows only, it's not the right technology for us. Please make UWP multi-platform, and have it run on Mac, Android, iOS and web.

              MS has decided to kick all its loyal XAML devs' a$$es, and favorite HTML-CSS-JS over CS-XAML. HCJ are hardcoded languages and evil. I'm waiting for the day MS brings back Silverlight+RIA services as plugin free, via compiling to HCJ.

              Shimmy Weitzhandler commented  · 

              I think having a 'compiler' that generates Silverlight code into HTML5+CSS3+JS code would be awesome, I think it's even worth throwing away some existing SL features to make the generator compatible with HTML5+CSS3+JS.
              It's not a secret, even many devs use it a lot, JavaScript is a stinky error-prone language. Having C#+XAML generated to H+C+J would be extremely great.

              Not only that but it will also make C#+XAML the most portable language in the world, it will work on every browser supporting HTML5/CSS3/JS, could make OOB wrappers for Linux, Android, OSX/iOS and more.
              Besides that SL is already easily portable to WPF/WinRT apps.

              Not to mentioned the awesomeness of RIA Services and the integrated validation tools that only SL offers, it's currently not present for WPF nor for WinRT.

              IMHO, MS gave up an awesome technology to get attention from the js developers, which is not completely stupid, what's stupid is that the ppl who worked on those awesome technology are frustrated. Moving from Silverlight to JS is like moving from Blue Label to Red Label...

                  yes, indeed. this is an obvious one that we didn’t overlook, simply ran out of time before the Tech Preview. We expect to get this working soon. Understand that expectations can change due to internal “resource allocations,” but even so I’m giving it very good odds. :)

                    Oooh yep. That is a natural extension of what we’ve done. It’s just a lot trickier to manipulate the input line (there are different input modes that apps can subscribe to and whatnot) than it is to enable more ways to select the output. But I hear you for sure. Now that we select more like a text editor, I want it all! It’s on the backlog. :)

                    Very essential!
