Uno Platform Launches New Documentation Site with More How-Tos

Uno Platform has a new documentation site sporting a new tutorial section with more how-to articles.

In addition, the company said the new Uno Platform documentation was designed to improve readability while adding full-text search.

"This has been consistently a key issue in feedback from the Uno community and with these steps we are starting to deliver improvements to our docs," Uno said in a May 20 blog post.

The open source Uno Platform is a major player in the Microsoft-centric dev space, claiming the only offering that fosters development of single-codebase applications for Windows, WebAssembly, iOS, macOS, Android and Linux, targeting all OSes and browsers.

It has teamed up with Microsoft to highlight the cross-platform app development capabilities of their respective dev tooling offerings, which for Microsoft is Win UI, now out in version 3.

It has also claimed several industry breakthroughs, including being the first to achieve WebAssembly AOT compilation in Visual Studio, along with taking Xamarin.Forms to the web, also with WebAssembly. Furthermore, it made news in porting the Windows Calculator to Linux.

The new documentation site features top questions about Uno Platform, ranging from what platforms can be targeted to how it's different from Blazor and Flutter.
