Note: this is not a language/framework discussion. We like C#/.NET and we’re pleasantly happy with it. We also liked how
both Dart and Kotlin looks. And we will move away from Java no matter what. I only want to know about stability/bugs/workflow experience
Xamarin would be a great option for us since we already use C# and .NET for almost all our projects. However, I’m a little afraid since I’ve read and heard that the Xamarin development experience is really trashy – installation bugs, cryptic errors, freezes all over, bad layout designer230; the list goes on.
Is Xamarin still this bad? Should we stay away from it? We currently have problems only with Java – the language. We’re pretty comfortable with the rest of the workflow and we surely don’t want to spend days just fighting with the framework/IDE.
By the way, if Xamarin is this bad: is Flutter/Dart any better? Since it’s still in Beta, we fear it may suffer from the same problems (instability, bugs, etc.).
