Visual Studio and Xamarin

    Question

  • Hi

    I know that Microsoft bought the Xamarin nowadays. Because of that ş have a question about that.

    Can we add Xamarin on our entire Visual Studio 2013 as a extension? Or must be install seperately? 

    Thx

  • When you install Xamarin extension from the Xamarin site, you need to choose if you want to select Xamarin Studio or not. Also when you install VS2015 CE, there's an option of selecting the packages you want to install with the VS.

    To install Xamarin Studio separately:

    https://www.xamarin.com/download

    To install VS2015 community with Xamarin:

  • In the future this is a possibility, but nothing has been confirmed with the recent acquisition, so you'll likely be waiting a bit before a clear answer appears.

  • so now that Xamarin is available for VS2015 Community, where is the instruction on how to properly install?

    I downloaded and installed Xamarin extension (from Xamarin site) to my existing VS2015. but things are looking a bit confusing.  where the heck is the Xamarin Studio?

    should I download and install the complete vs2015 ce?

    please advise or at least, there must be a page somewhere that explains all this.
