Where is the support for Xamarin.Mac from popular nugets?

I was trying to port my Xamarin.Forms app to Mac platform and I was surprised to see so many popular nugets not supporting the mac platform. Pretty much all of the Xamarin plugins and Xamarin Essentials are not supported.

    So a few things:

    • If the nuget in question doesn't use platform specific code / native libraries and is packaged as netstandard2, it should just work.
    • You can try setting your Target Framework to Full instead of Modern, as Modern is less supported as it requires a special build, just like Xamarin.iOS.
    • Please consider filing issues against the individual libraries asking for support. That is a build configuration issue (and possibly code as well) that the library in question would need to make.
