Xamarin.Forms on Linux? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User174471 posted

    Given there is no Xamarin Studio for Linux, is there an implementation of the Xamarin.Forms for Desktop Linux such as Ubuntu or other distros?

    Otherwise what would the community suggest in terms of developing cross-platform GUI Apps (mainly for Desktop Windows, Mac and Linux)?

    What would be a stable and continually well supported option? and if there isn't any such options then what is the best on each of the platforms so that I can develop the GUIs separately per platform?

    Thanks
