A BIG guy in WPF, XAML and cool things around!
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 20:25

José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:28

Capture.PNG
I don't hold my breath, but it's possitive
I gave him the URL of the project :)

José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:42
he's totally swamped with his daily job
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:42
yes, i can imagine!
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:42
but hopefully he will have some time and (maybe) like the project
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:43
i think he's already aware of it tbh
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:43
if somebody in the official team gets involved...
that could be very nice
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:43
i don't think they would tbh
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:43
yes, it's very unlikely
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:44
but i'm sure there's someone there trying to get system.xaml open sourced
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:44
I hope!
it damages the system a lot
XAML is tightly coupled
not being cross-platform is doing more harm than good
it depends on the Windows platform too much
being so abstract as it is!!!
because XAML is like XML with some butter
I cannot believe how much coupled it is
Depends on System and System.Diagnostics and... ComponentModel
that are super fat assemblies
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:47
well that's not a problem as they're all available on all platforms
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:47
ComponentModel?
and Diagnostics?
do you mean, Mono?
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:47
yeah
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:48
I'm going there right now :) Mono
too look at some classes
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:54
nice!
I have a war against XamlType, TypeConverter and TypeDescriptor
they are NASTY!
I wonder if there is anyone that is trying to make some PCLs out of them
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:56
not that i've heard of
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 22:58
ahhh, I keep on dreaming...
Steven Kirk
@grokys
Feb 12 2015 22:59
xamarin.forms use xaml but i think they use their own implementation? might be worth asking there
José Manuel Nieto
@SuperJMN
Feb 12 2015 23:00
I should go there, yeah
