What is ReactiveUI?
ReactiveUI is a composable, cross-platform model-view-viewmodel framework for all .NET platforms that is inspired by functional reactive programming, which is a paradigm that allows you to abstract mutable state away from your user interfaces and express the idea around a feature in one readable place and improve the testability of your application.
There has been an excellent book written by our Alumni maintainer Kent Boogart.
Install the following packages to start building your own ReactiveUI app. Note: some of the platform-specific packages are required. This means your app won't perform as expected until you install the packages properly. See the Installation docs page for more info.
The core team members, ReactiveUI contributors and contributors in the ecosystem do this open-source work in their free time. If you use ReactiveUI, a serious task, and you'd like us to invest more time on it, please donate. This project increases your income/productivity too. It makes development and applications faster and it reduces the required bandwidth.
This is how we use the donations:
- Allow the core team to work on ReactiveUI
- Thank contributors if they invested a large amount of time in contributing
- Support projects in the ecosystem
If you want to discuss something or just need help, here is our Slack room, where there are always individuals looking to help out!
Please do not open GitHub issues for support requests.
ReactiveUI is developed under an OSI-approved open source license, making it freely usable and distributable, even for commercial use.
If you want to submit pull requests please first open a GitHub issue to discuss. We are first time PR contributors friendly.
The current source uses Visual Studio 2019 Preview. Please install the following workloads to enable building the source:
