No official iOS client?

Aldariann 1 Reputation point

as an iOS mobile developper, I was interested in adopting the 5 backend stack.
Unfortunately, it seems there is no "officially" supported iOS client for signalr.

There is one and the author did a good work, but I was more looking for something officially supported and more regularly updated.

I was thinking that MSFT would be at the forefront of this and have up to date, shinny iOS clients for all its products, it is not the case.

Are there plans to create an official client for signalr?

(i don't use xamarin and don't intend to).

A set of technologies in the .NET Framework for building web applications and XML web services.

    SignalR is more like a protocol, for which anyone can write a client implementation. For various reasons, Microsoft only writes and supports a few of its own.

    You might use the JavaScript one if you insist on an "official" implementation, as an iOS app can host JavaScript code,
