Has anyone been able to use Xamarin Forms Player https://github.com/MobileEssentials/FormsPlayer with Telerik Controls. This tool, at least when using Android, reduces the 'shoot yourself in the face' factor down considerably when tweaking up the design for Xamarin Forms.
I have a folder for DummyView.xaml with a corresponding DummyView.json that I use to try out different design things. Instead of waiting for a rebuild, deploy, then view cycle, as soon as I hit save, I see the updated layout instantly. However, with the Telerik ListView at least, I just get a bunch of exceptions and can't see the layout.
