Accessing the Component Store from a .NET Class Library on Mac

wallymwallym USInsider, Beta ✭✭✭

I have a project that I am designing to share as much code as possible. That project uses JSON.NET. I'd like to pull the JSON.NET component from the Xamarin Component Store. That does not appear to be possible in XS. Is it impossible to access the Component Store when a .NET class library project is selected?

    The Component packages can currently only contain library binaries for the frameworks used in mobile platforms - iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

    Support for PCL frameworks in Components will be added when we release PCL support. It'll be possible to add them to PCL projects as well as to iOS/Android/WP7 projects.

    Thanks @mhutch I wasn't sure how this worked. Then I found the Nuget addin for XS and really solved the problem. Keep up the good work on XS!
