Create XPC Services?

Am I just missing where it's at in Xamarin Studio? I am trying to find where I would make XPC services Xamarin.Mac. Is there an alternative I could pursue if XPC is not available?

    Until these are added is it possible to access them via P/Invoke?

    The problem is that XPC services require some packaging magic (provided by the Xcode template) that we don't have yet. You could p/invoke into the relevant APIs, but unless you duplicate the packaging you won't act like a service.

    Has this changed at all or is XPC still unsupported at this time?

  • ChrisHamonsChrisHamons USXamarin Team Xamurai

    We have not added XPC support so far. It's still on our very long term roadmap (along with almost every other API on macOS).

    Just a friendly reminder that Xamarin.Mac and Xamarin.iOS are open source ( if you are interesting on hacking on features you are interested in. :)
