What is Uno Platform?

Uno Platform is the only open-source platform for building Desktop, Web, and Mobile applications by using only C# and WinUI XAML. Using this, the developers can build performant, single codebase applications with Uno Platform today.


The Uno Platform is built on top of .NET taking advantage of Windows platform features such as accessibility, touch, keyboard inputs as well as rich controls like Charts, Gauges, and Grid.

Microsoft and Uno Platform worked together to release Project Union 0.5 and Uno Platform 3.6 on the same day, within a few hours difference.


With WinUI 3 – Project reunion 0.5 we are making investments to enable developers to improve Windows experiences. We are pleased to see open source projects like Uno Platform take that mission further by extending the reach of WinUI to Web, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android., said Mike Harsh, Microsoft Partner Group Program Manager.


We are delighted to see WinUI 3 launch as part of Project Reunion and alongside WinUI. We are very proud to work closely with Microsoft to ensure Uno Platform can provide day-zero support for WinUI 3 and bring WinUI-built applications everywhere, including Web, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android., said Francois Tanguay, CEO of Uno Platform.
