Avalonia is a WPF/UWP-inspired cross-platform XAML-based UI framework providing a flexible styling system and supporting a wide range of Operating Systems such as Windows (.NET Framework, .NET Core), Linux (via Xorg), macOS and with experimental support for Android and iOS.
Avalonia is ready for General-Purpose Desktop App Development. However, there may be some bugs and breaking changes as we continue along into this project's development. To see the status of some of our features, please see our Roadmap here.

Awesome Avalonia is curated list of awesome Avalonia UI tools, libraries, projects and resources.
Avalonia Visual Studio Extension contains project and control templates that will help you get started. After installing it, open "New Project" dialog in Visual Studio, choose "Avalonia" in "Visual C#" section, select "Avalonia .NET Core Application" and press OK (screenshot). Now you can write code and markup that will work on multiple platforms!
For those without Visual Studio, a starter guide for .NET Core CLI can be found here.
If you need to develop Avalonia app with JetBrains Rider, go and vote on this issue in their tracker. JetBrains won't do things without their users telling them that they want the feature, so only YOU can make it happen.
Avalonia is delivered via NuGet package manager. You can find the packages here: stable(ish)
Use these commands in the Package Manager console to install Avalonia manually:
Install-Package Avalonia Install-Package Avalonia.Desktop
Bleeding Edge Builds
or use nightly build feeds as described here: https://github.com/AvaloniaUI/Avalonia/wiki/Using-nightly-build-feed
You can take a look at the getting started page for an overview of how to get started but probably the best thing to do for now is to already know a little bit about WPF/Silverlight/UWP/XAML and ask questions in our Gitter room.
