Is there any way to convert Xamarin Forms UI (xaml) to Native UI project?

Hi Everybody
Do you know tool / how to convert project Xamarin Forms UI (xaml) to :
1. IOS UI project ( Storyboard)
2. Android UI project (axml)

I think very cool if have a tool like that .
We will design UI using Xamarin.Forms then got Native UI project :D

    yes you build the XF project and get an ios and android app. XF compiles directly to native platform.

    Thanks for your reply
    What Xamarin Studio do when we click button build ?
    Is there anywhere store UI file generated after build?

    I don't think it's going to be possible to convert a XAML project to native. A Xamarin.Forms app has an internal layout engine that works separately to (i.e. on top of) the native layout engine for each platform. You would need that code as well in order to make the XAML come alive and actually display something.

    Understandably enough, Xamarin has kept all of that magic private.
