A set of pre-prepared UI views, panels and surfaces for drawing. One of these views can be added to the view hierachy, and then be used for drawing without the need for complex setup. There is also a set of extension methods for converting to/from SkiaSharp and native types.
A set of pre-prepared views for Xamarin.Forms, for fully cross-platform drawing code. There are views for both CPU and GPU backends, along with extension methods for converting to/from SkiaSharp and Xamarin.Forms types. Currently available for iOS, Android and UWP.
All the samples have been re-written from the ground up to both improve the actual apps as well as to improve the development experience.
