FreshMVVM 101:Introduction


I love to use custom frameworks in my Xamarin forms based applications and FreshMVVM is one of the best frameworks available in the market that built for Xamarin Forms. In this series I will discussing about key features of FreshMVVM to help you build awesome Xamarin Apps

According to author Michael Ridland his GitHub says, FreshMvvm is a super light Mvvm Framework designed specifically for Xamarin.Forms. It’s designed to be Easy, Simple and Flexible.

How does it compare to other options?

  • Automatic wiring of BindingContext
  • Automatic wiring of Page events (eg. appearing)
  • Basic methods (with values) on PageModel (init, reverseinit)
