Forum Cross Platform with Xamarin

installed Nuget package not showing up as a namespace?

I'm pretty new to Xamarin and am exploring various computer vision based applications. I'm trying to see if there's a way to write the computer vision functions by leveraging OpenCV into a single code base in PCL. I found the NuGet package EmguCV, and successfully installed in Xamarin, but it doesn't seem to populate into the Reference folder and the IDE isn't recognizing the EmguCV namespace. Could somebody help explain why this is? Also I found EmguCV components for Xamarin. How is this different than a NuGet package?

    Thanks, @mattward. That makes sense. Since EmguCV has support for both Android and iOS, does it mean that I can still write a single code in PCL and just have the individual components added to the separate Droid / iOS projects?

    Yes you can write code in the PCL. You may need to create your own abstractions and interfaces since the Xamarin Component does not provide a PCL assembly itself.
