I'm evaluating Xamarin for a new project that will be targeting different platforms (iOS, Android, UWP).
When I add the NuGet package to my PCL project, I get the following error :
Impossible dâ€™installer le package Â«Â Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore 1.0.1Â Â». Vous essayez dâ€™installer ce package dans un projet ciblant Â«Â .NETPortable,Version=v4.5,Profile=Profile111Â Â», mais le package ne contient aucun fichier de contenu ou rÃ©fÃ©rence dâ€™assembly compatible avec cette infrastructure.
So I guess that EF Core is not supported by Xamarin.
Many thanks in advance, Julien
This is a current action item for the EF team:
As of 10 days ago there is a task to see if this will be supported:
Now that Xamarin supports netstandard we are going to do another round of testing and see if we are ready to have Xamarin be one of our supported scenarios. Once we've looked at this we can make a call if we call it supported for 1.1. I'm going to start by porting a sample app I did back in the beta5 days.
For some time I've also been interested in EF Core working on Xamarin.iOS, and have been monitoring the progress of the respective projects. There's good news now:
We are closing this issue as we believe the root cause has been removed in newer versions of Xamarin iOS. That said, support for Xamarin is still considered a work in progress. Please refer to the call for help at #4269 (comment), and create new issues for any problems you find.
