Learn how to get started with functional programming with Xamarin, F#, and Fabulous to create amazing native mobile apps. Guest blogger and Fabulous maintainer Timothé Larivière walks you through what Fabulous is, how to get started, and how to build real world functional native mobile apps.
Let me introduce you to F# Functional App Development using Xamarin.Forms with the Fabulous project, which brings the Elmish Model-View-Update (MVU) architecture to Xamarin. It is a great way for F# developers to rapidly build mobile applications as you will see in this blog post.
Although Xamarin technologies are most commonly used to develop mobile applications, Xamarin.Mac makes it easy to use your preferred .NET language to develop desktop Mac apps. There are many C# examples in Xamarin’s mac-samples directory on Github, but it's also easy to use F# to develop desktop Mac apps as well.
