Can you use Xlabs.Forms.Controls.RepeaterView to Horizontally repeat?

I have some UI that I would like to repeat for a small collection (1-5 entries) and decided that rather than using a ListView that I would use the RepeaterView, so that I could repeat horizontally instead of vertically, but now matter how much I tried, it would always repeat / render vertically.

My parent component would take up the correct bounds (i.e. fill and expand horizontally), yet the RepeaterView templates (within a horizontal StackLayout) would not render horizontally, it would only take up some of the horizontal space, but each item in the list would be rendered on a new line.

In the end, I decided to use Xamarin.Forms.CarouselView, which works and looks great, but of course you don't see a preview of the images as thumbnails.

Q1 - Can you use Xlabs.Forms.Controls.RepeaterView to Horizontally repeat?

Q2 - Is there a nice drop-in component that can show you image thumbnails, then once clicked show the full-size version of the thumbnail image?

Thanks!
Rob.
