AWS Open Sources .NET Porting Assistant GUI

After previously open sourcing components of its Porting Assistant for .NET, Amazon Web Services open sourced the tool's GUI.

AWS last July announced the Porting Assistant for .NET to scan apps and generate a .NET Core compatibility assessment, helping speed up ports to the new platform -- .NET Core and its new successor, .NET 5 -- running on Linux.

Previously, the cloud giant had open sourced the tool's data store and subsequently the client and the source code analyzer used by the assessment APIs. The latest component to join the open source party is PortingAssistant.UI, a package providing the source code of the porting tool's UI.

Also being outsourced was AWS UI, which provides React components for web developers. These components were used in the .NET porting tool, as it was built with React, using the Electron application framework.

"AWS UI is a collection of React components that help create intuitive, responsive, and accessible user experiences for web applications," AWS said. "AWS UI is available under the terms of the Apache 2.0 open source license. This release of AWS UI is just the first step in a larger process of creating a new open source design system. Stay tuned for future updates in this space!"
