F# with visual IDE support project template is available

Hi all,

 

Little known to all, there’s a WPF project template that supports F#, with the help of F# type providers! Yes, we can now create WPF app using F# with visual IDE support of XAML!

This handy extension is created by Daniel Mohl, one of Visual F# MVP!

fsharp_wpftemplate

The project template is available as Visual Studio extension for VS 2012 and VS 2013: http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/e0907c99-bb04-4eb8-9692-9333d5ff4399

Note: it’s also available for VS 2010 but I believe VS 2010 is now nearly at the end of lifecycle. So please VS 2012 at least.

The project template is available under Visual F#->WPF like below:

fsharp_wpfprojecttemplate_createproject

Create it, and now you’ll have WPF visual IDE for F#:

fsharp_wpf_visualide

Now F# is becoming more fun to use for WPF developers!
