Wow, lots of libraries and especially videos this week about .NET MAUI. I just got back from a full week at HQ in Redmond meeting with teammates I haven't seen in more than 2 years or...ever.
Table of Contents:
A .NET MAUI implementation of a Google library, this gives you Material Design colors so you can easily utilize them in your app plus some helpers. You can use the colors as defined, or add your own overrides and fallbacks. The readme has code snippets:
C# implementation of Google's Material color utilities
- HCT: a color space similar to HSL but with perceptually accurate colors
- Quantize and score: extract the best colors from an image for theming
- Scheme: turn a single color into a palette for theming
Features not in Google's version:
- Style: different ways to generate palettes, available from Android 13
- A generic scheme that supports different color types and adding type-safe custom colors
A library for adding Material You colors to your .NET MAUI app
- Dynamic theming on every platform (except iOS)
- Light/dark theme support
- Automatically storing and reapplying seed color/dark mode/style preferences
All of these can be turned on/off at any time.
There are sample projects for the console, Blazor and .NET MAUI in the Playground folder. These showcase different ways to use the two libraries.

Steema has released an update to TeeChart for .NET MAUI. This includes charts, map, and gauge controls covering dozens of use cases.
The team shipped 1.1.0 and Pedro Jesus has guest-blogged about customizing controls and the toolkit. This release includes the long awaited (BY ME) IconTintColorBehavior!

Matthew Leibowitz on the .NET MAUI team shipped a bunch of updates this past week, including a SkiaSharp view for .NET MAUI that plays Lottie animations!

Gerald VersluisEasy-peasy! Matter of a couple of minutes to set it up! I think I need to record a little video...
The monkey is to remind us of the Xamarin past of .NET MAUI. We need someone to make a .NET bot Lottie animation! twitter.com/jfversluis/sta…12:30 PM - 15 Jul 2022Gerald Versluis @jfversluisLottie animations for .NET MAUI anyone? 👀 https://t.co/FblRMBzo5c
I may have highlighted this one before. I've built calendar controls before, and it's so fun I would prefer to just use something like this. ;) Check it out.
Now with .NET MAUI support.
