Mugen MVVM Toolkit makes it easier to develop cross-platform application using the Model-View-ViewModel design pattern.

The Mugen MVVM Toolkit makes extensive use of Net Standard Library to provide maintainable cross platform C# native applications.

The Mugen MVVM Toolkit provides a cross-platform MVVM development framework built on top of:

- WinForms


- Xamarin.Android

- Xamarin.iOS

- Xamarin.Forms


The MVVM framework includes the following features that differs this project from other frameworks:

- Deep integration with each platform.

- Supports state preservation and restoration for mobile platforms.

- Full Fragment support for Android, you do not need to worry about activity, fragments, sub-fragments or their state all this makes the framework.

- Solves the nested user controls problem in MVVM, all view models are dynamically created by you, using the GetViewModel method and you do not need to use the ViewModelLocator.

- Supports all kinds of navigation like modal window, page navigation, tab navigation, back stack fragment navigation for android. You can also easily add a new kind of navigation.

- Navigation system works with view models and allows to expect the completion of the operation. You can pass any parameters between view models.

- Good design mode support, for xaml platforms supports the creation of design view model with any constructor parameters.

- Supports bindings on all platforms, all of the native binding features available for WPF platform available on all platforms and even more.

- Binding supports C# language expressions like Linq, Extension methods, method call, ternary operator (?:), coalescing operator (??), etc.

- Supports subscription to any control event.

- Built-in support for validation.

- You can easily write their own extensions for bindings.

- Supports attached members (properties, events, methods), you can extend any object as you want.

- Special editor for WinForms, you do not need to write code to create bindings.

- Binding parser builds syntax tree that allows you to easily change or extend the bindings, without manipulation of the raw text.

- Binding supports fluent syntax.

- Excellent binding performance.
