Kaasa Releases .NET MAUI Plugin for Movesense
Movesense software partner Kaasa solution GmbH just released a .NET MAUI plugin for Movesense on GitHub. .NET Multi-platform App UI (.NET MAUI) is a cross-platform framework for creating native mobile and desktop apps with C# and XAML.
The Kaasa.Mds plugin makes life easier for mobile app developers. It speeds up app development for Movesense and makes it more efficient than before. The plugin is a cross-platform library for the Movesense Device Service library. With the plugin, developers can connect and communicate with the Movesense sensor on Android, iOS and .NET 7.0 (MAUI) platforms.
The plugin consists of three parts, Kaasa.Mds, Kaasa.Mds.Android and Kaasa.Mds.iOS. It is installed via NuGet. The functions are documented in the code. The IMdsService is used to connect sensors and provides callbacks for the connection status or possible errors. The IMdsDevice mirrors a connected sensor and allows execution of API calls like Get or Subscribe. Developers can extend the existing IMds interfaces with functionality.
— Kaasa.Mds is a essential tool for Movesense mobile developers that have been using the C# / Xamarin plugin available but are struggling with Xamarin not being supported anymore. We think that MAUI and .NET 7 are the logical steps and will help other developers a lot, says Nico Kaartinen, CEO of Kaasa.
Kaasa uses the plugin every day and has utilized it already for various internal and external projects.
— It is fun and very efficient to create new systems with this basis. We believe that the plugin is beneficial for the whole Movesense community. We would be happy if other developers give us feedback, ask questions, makes suggestions and of course pull requests, Kaartinen summarizes.
The plugin is free to use for all Movesense developers. For companies that need experienced developer resources for their Movesense sensor projects, we warmly recommend Kaasa as a development partner.
