Podcast: Enhanced XAML Productivity with MFractor
In this episode of the Xamarin Podcast, I’m joined by Matthew Robbins to discuss his XAML productivity tool MFractor, building add-ins for Xamarin Studio, code generation with Roslyn, and his journey from idea to product.
MFractor: Productivity Tools for Xamarin.Forms
MFractor is an add-in for Xamarin Studio and Visual Studio for Mac that contains productivity tooling for Xamarin.Forms, including:
- XAML analysis to detect dozens of code issues at design time and enable you to fix them in a few clicks.
- The ability to easily explore projects with MVVM navigation shortcuts, XAML tooltips, image tooltips and XAML go-to declaration.
- XAML refactoring to rename namespaces, import controls, and organize your XAML.
- Capability to quickly generate C# code by implementing ViewModels, generate missing bindings, create bindable properties, and more, all from your XAML.
Check out the MFractor documentation portal for a full listing of features. Want to see it live in action? Be sure to watch Matthew Robbins demoing the features live on The Xamarin Show with Microsoft’s James Montemagno.
