WPF in Linux

Keerthana Kolandasamy 16 Reputation points

According to this blog(https://devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet/announcing-net-5-0-preview-1/), The .NET Core and .NET 5 (latest .NET platforms) will support WPF. But looks like the support is limited only to Windows OS.

Is there any recommendation to develop/build/run desktop GUI applications in Linux, that could reuses the .NET Core Libraries we have already created?

    check out the ui library used to build edge for linux, i have been testing edge for linux for months and its looks stable but it may depend on what are you goin to build for example here is a link to check about skia https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/which-one-is-better-skia-api-as-the-graphics-api-or-opengl-es/m-p/1260220
    i havent tested it my self but it sems promising

    the following link will help you to get informed on some of ui libraries used for crossplataform building


    gtk# and skiasharp seems as the best optios for the cuestion in my opinion
