Don't know if you guys where to fast for the business or what went wrong but i hat to spent 1 Hour and add all references to all the packages by my self because the solution set up with the ninja is unable to handle nuget packages correctly... we are soon in the Year 2015, i kind of expect that... Otherwise i do not use a tool, and do it manually...
Created a Solution with Android, Windows Store and iOS
This plugin is awesome! It will help you to start with Portable Class Library in MonoTouch, Droid, etc. Just couple clicks and you may have entire multiplatform solution with MVVM Cross. Good work Adrian!
when generating a project for Xamarin Forms with the Ninja Coder, the Windows Phone Application is stuck at the loading screen. Nothing happens and the first page ist not loading. I guess this has to do something with the RootFrame.Navigating event, that cancels the navigation. I am not sure how to fix this. Anyone else discovering the same issue?
The installer package for 3.3.0 seems to be broken. It does not contain the latest Project Templates from the source branch and so for example the Windows Phone project is not launching correctly. Please create a new build with the right templates.
I just used latest version 3.2.0 with vs.net 2013 to create a sample project test1 with all defaults (Xamarin.Forms)
1. generated 6 projects
NO Errors at this point all clean
3. try to run on IOS 8.1 simulator and getting
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Test1.Core' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
What am I missing? is Xamarin.Forms option still work in progress?
Thank you for great tool
is VS.NET 2013 Update 4 a problem?
I uploaded a link to a recording to demonstrate problem if you want to see.
i will let you know shortly about windows/ android result.....
Can we carry this on via github issues.
if you create an issue here - we can continue looking into it.
It might be worth looking into if the exception contains any more info too.
PS video was really helpful - what tool do you use?
I used Ninja to generate my projects. I got a null ref exception on this line of code in App.xaml.cs:
PhoneApplicationService.Current.UserIdleDetectionMode = IdleDetectionMode.Disabled
Solution was to add this to App.xaml inside the Application tags:
<!--Required object that handles lifetime events for the application-->
I created the handlers for the events that were missing. After this all is working.
When I want to create a new project with the extension the options involving Xamarin.Forms are showing: Not available in this version.
Which version is meant here? The version of the Extension? Or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance.
The Xamarin Forms option is still a work in progress - I have a version that is still being tested (but is nearly complete) - if you would like to try it send me your email address or get in touch via twitter @asudbury.
Also keep in mind if you are interested in the Xamarin iOS and Android development that Xamarin doesn't support Visual Studio 2013 yet. They are still working on this. So any port Ninja to 2013 would be lacking this modules unless used via a unsupported hack of some kind.
I am putting the finishing touches to version 3.0.0 of the Ninja. This will include support for VS2013.
I am aiming to have a beta version of it available next week - if you would like to help test it (just the vs2013 part) that would be great.
Can you please let me know if the support for VS 2013 is made available in the latest release (3.1.0) Or is it still in beta?
I am working on Windows 8.1 Store apps. By using the latest version of this tool, it is allowing to create Windows Store app on VS 2013, but targeting to Windows 8 (but not 8.1).
When re-targeting the Windows 8 project to 8.1, error gets generated as below:
"Some NuGet packages were installed using a target framework different from the current target framework and may need to be reinstalled. For more information, visit http://docs.nuget.org/docs/workflows/reinstalling-packages. Packages affected: MvvmCross.HotTuna.CrossCore, MvvmCross.HotTuna.MvvmCrossLibraries"
Our plan is to create cross platform apps (Windows 8.1 and iOS)
So, is there any guidance available to create Windows Store 8.1 apps using this tool.
It seems that projects generated can't pull in the newer 3.2.1 via Nuget. Error message refers to incompatible profiles. It is mentioned in the Mvx release notes that a newer profile should be used like 78. I however can't find out how to ask Ninja to use that instead of 158 (dropdown list in settings only contains 158)
The code is already open source on github.
Things are changing at a fast pace - let me know what changes you are thinking of - I may have them covered.
It would be best to add Issues to the github repository regarding changes.
