How to Migrate Your Xamarin App in 6 Steps

  1. Get to Know .NET MAUI

    It is designed to facilitate cross-platform development using the latest technologies, abstracting them into one common framework built on .NET. It comes with performance improvements, unification of critical libraries and extended accessibility support. It enables you to implement the app logic in a single codebase, avoid weaknesses and benefit from native experiences. To walk you through the basics, check the How to create your first .NET MAUI app.

  2. Familiarize Yourself With Telerik UI for .NET MAUI

    Through the years we have proved ourselves at building advanced and optimized components, not only with technology, but also by the full service we have to offer to assure high product quality. You can refer to the detailed documentation for guidance on how to configure and use the components.

  3. Analyze your Application

    Evaluate the current UI and architecture of your app and try to identify how you could share UI layout, design, resource files and business logic across platforms. We do see .NET MAUI as the cross-platform strategy to invest in as it enables developers to have one consolidated project that produces executables for each platform, but with all native user experiences.

  4. Start Building

    Once you know your goal, you can start replacing the old components with their Telerik UI for .NET MAUI counterparts. To customize the appearance and behavior of the native controls on each platform, you will need to port any custom renderers from Xamarin.Forms to handlers which are much easier to extend or override when needed. For a detailed guide, go to the official topic on how to migrate custom renderers to handlers.

  5. Migrate Business Logic

    .NET MAUI is the evolution of .NET cross-platform for developers who want to transition from mobile to truly cross-platform. If you have an Xamarin.Forms app and your business layer is already written in XAML and C#, then NET MAUI would be the intuitive choice to reuse most of the existing logic. To make the process smoother, see also the blog post on Tips & Tricks for Migrating from Xamarin to .NET MAUI.

  6. Refactor and Optimize

    Once your app is functioning well, think about whether you can optimize it further. .NET MAUI enables developers to directly consume native APIs completely in C# allowing further extensibility. It will optimize all necessary resources for each platform’s specific requirements and allows decoupling of custom code from the native UI. Aiming to solve some of the most pressing developer challenges, sharing logic and UI reusability are just a few of the advantages to capitalize on.
