I will have to create the animations for myself anyway, so I will try to add animations for LinearBarSeries, LineSeries and maybe BoxPlotSeries. In the meantime I have another question. Is it possible to enable the trackers in touch mode? They work great on the desktop (UWP), but not on mobile?
@GeertvanHorrik I can help, I dont think you need it but this is the animation livechart uses
rendering system is totally different
data changes every 0.5 secs so all the movement you see is animated

@beto-rodriguez nice. The thing that we have to do in OxyPlot is animate the actual values, they invalidate the plot. A good example can be found here: https://github.com/oxyplot/oxyplot/blob/develop/Source/Examples/WPF/WpfExamples/Examples/AnimationsDemo/AnimationExtensions.cs
so for a line, something like that is a good way to animate LineSeries. What I have in mind is when a user sets up the markers + line, we redraw from the beginning (without markers), then add the markers ones a line has been drawn. It might be a bit complex, but since this can all be an extension method, it should be highly reusable on all platforms.
