Add support to MonoDevelop for XWT user interfaces.
A visually designer would be nice.
Xwt is a new .NET framework for creating desktop applications that run on multiple platforms from the same codebase. Xwt works by exposing one unified API across all environments that is mapped to a set of native controls on each platform.
Xwt works by creating an engine at runtime that will map to the underlying platform. These are the engines that are supported on each platform:
- Windows: WPF engine, Gtk engine (using Gtk#)
- MacOS X: Cocoa engine (using MonoMac) and Gtk engine (using Gtk#)
- Linux: Gtk engine (using Gtk#)
I find this would be a nice solution to the "no WPF support" problem.
Also i think it will be nice because with XWT you can create desktop applications that run on multiple platforms from the same codebase and not have to write a different GUI for each platform.
Xwt is nice - I would like it if someone could start it - the monodevelop team is atm busy (It's unlikely that we've the resources to start the project this year).
Some community support would be helpful - I would help with the monodevelop integration, but someone should get the designer working (maybe taking stetic as an example).
