Here Tom Duffy looks at the tools provided by Xamarin and Visual Studio for building Xamarin apps and preparing for distribution.
- [Instructor] Xamarin actually creates…three separate projects, when building cross-platform app.…The main project is where the cross-platform app resides.…The code in this project is propagated…to the projects built specifically for Android and iOS.…If you are creating platform-specific code,…you could do so in each of the projects separately.…Then, at build time, the cross-platform code…would be merged with the platform-specific code.…Like all the platforms we've looked at,…building deployable apps is relatively easy in Xamarin.…
You just change the platform scheme…from debug to release, and run the project.…Alternatively, you could use the build menu…to build all the projects, or just the active one.…Also like other platforms we've looked at,…publishing an app from Xamarin to an App Store…can be challenging.…This is more due to the fact that publishing…can be challenging in general,…not because Xamarin is difficult to work with.…In fact, Visual Studio makes the process…as easy as possible.…
