Kick-start Your F# WPF Apps

  • submit to reddit
Over the last few years I've announced a number of project templates that are available on Visual Studio Gallery. A few of these have provided ways to kick-start F# WPF apps. I talked about one of these templates here. While these are nice for getting acquainted with building WPF apps in F# and/or F#+C#, the files needed for the included sample app may become a bother once you have a few of these apps under your belt. Because of this, I've released an F# only Empty WPF project template (an F#/C# Empty WPF template will likely be coming soon).

To get the new template, do the following:

1. In Visual Studio 2010 or 11, navigate to File -> New and select Online Templates (or just Online if using VS11).

2. Search for "Daniel Mohl" or "F# Empty Windows App" as shown below:

3. Select the template, click OK, and agree to the install.

While it's certainly not required to use the template, you can find the full source on my GitHub.
