ReactiveUI - Documentation

If you have not noticed yet, the ReactiveUI team has made quite significant progress writing some documentation. It can be found here.

The nice thing about this is that they also described some concepts, like the usage of Rx framework itself and the whole idea of FRP, with some links to videos and papers.

Learn ReactiveUI

When I first looked at ReactiveUI (RxUI), I found that there is not much documentation out there about this awesome framework. Apart form the blogpost-style ebook, made by Paul Betts back in 2011 and the actual paper book from APress (this one), there were nearly no other comprehensive sources of information. And the release cycle of RxUI was so dynamic that these 2011 books looked badly outdated, compared with current development of the framework. [Read More]

Autofac and ReactiveUI 6

Today, I updated my previous helper class that replaced the standard RxUI service locator with Autofac container. ReactiveUI 6 introduced some breaking changes and I had to update the code to make it work. Basically, RxApp has no method to register a custom resolver. Instead, it always uses the ModernDependencyResolver locator from Splat. However, this locator can work with any other type of resolver that implements IMutableDependencyResolver interface. There is one new member in this interface, ServiceRegistrationCallback, which is used nowhere in RxUI6 so I didn't bother implementing it. [Read More]

Autofac and ReactiveUI

Update I published a new post about using Autofac with ReactiveUI 6. ReactiveUI uses an internal dependency resolver. Most of the cases are covered by it and it also can be used to resolve references other that ReactiveUI internal interfaces. However, if you want to use another container to inject constructor parameters or properties, you have to have your view models and views to be registered and resolved by a container. [Read More]
