Meet Gorilla Player, the missing link between Xamarin Forms and Preview
Build layouts, create styles, fine tune values, preview images, all that without compiling; AWESOME!
Preview your UI across multiple devices at the same time on iOS, Android or all of them at the same time
Use our Xamarin Studio Addin to interact with Gorilla Player and enjoy the journey while you build and preview amazing UIs
Ok, want to know more about Gorilla's features?
Hi, I'm Gorilla Player! I allow to instant preview your XAML files...my main purpose in life is to save you time, tons of it.
Do you prefer working with styles, colors instead of a mess of inline attributes? No problem, Gorilla gives you instant preview for all kind of resources.
If you define resources in the same file or a different one (e.g. App.xaml), Gorilla will take care of it. Just work as you are used to.
Enjoy the pleasure of working with modular XAML for your app. Watch while you build.
ContentViews are handy for reuse and modularization. Gorilla will get them too.
Add Sample Data easily
Feed your UI with sample data directly from XAML using JSON or C# objects.
You can also use sample data to simulate your view models (you can play easily with its values to test different visual states of your UI).
Simultaneously preview on Multiple Platforms and devices
Android and iOS preview, one at a time or all of them simultaneously without compiling!
Early XAML Errors Notifications
Gorilla will look your code and will provide better feedback about issues.
Provides an SDK to integrate it to your Apps and take advantage of features like CustomRenderers, styling done directly in the Xamarin Forms host platform, external assemblies, etc.
