XAF Team Blog
13 March 2020

Before I discuss community news, I want to send my best wishes to everyone. Here's hoping you are all safe and doing well.

New XAF Community Modules

  1. The eXpand Framework, managed by Apostolis Bekiaris, continues to release new platform-agnostic packages for XAF: http://xaf.expandframework.com/. Unlike the former version of eXpand, these are low-dependency packages. They also work with previous XAF versions, and include unit tests that run on Azure, wiki and demos. I want to promote the new NuGet package that contains a standalone version of XAF's Model Editor, designed to integrate with Visual Studio, Rider, Explorer - Xpand.XAF.ModelEditor.
  2. A new version of XAFARI that works with v19.2.6 is available. Galaktika Soft has been providing paid reusable XAF modules with documentation and support services for more than 6 years.
  3. In case you missed it, LlamaChant published a new free module: https://www.llamachant.com/single-documents/xaf-sample-security-preview-module/. I also want to remind you that Dave Hesketh and his colleagues have been providing XAF training, consulting and custom development services for a number of years. If you are not familiar with Dave and want to know about the tools he uses, his opinion on Blazor and also his advice for XAF beginners, visit http://xafersweekly.com/issues/17#start - this news feed is run by Jose Columbie, another XAF customer and consultant. To learn more about Dave's For a full list of third-parties providing similar services, visit this page.
  4. Manuel Grundner, a DevExpress MVP, worked on a new project and shared some of his results in his blog: Install a blazor app as globaltool and service. Earlier Manuel also created an XAF chat at https://gitter.im/XAF-Community/community. It's not very active lately, but I wanted to bring attention to it should XAFers want to discuss development questions.
  5. Christian Angermeier published a module on GitHub (MS-PL License): GDS.ExpressApp.UserFilter. This XAF module works for both Windows and Web platforms and helps create user-specific filters for ListViews (using the navigation and main menus).

Welcome Joche Ojeda, a New DevExpress MVP

You might know Joche from his promotion efforts in the Spanish community - his XAF Facebook developer group (https://www.facebook.com/xafes/) has almost 400 members. Joche also does XAF/XPO consulting and custom development for companies in North and Latin America. He also published many free XAF/XPO/Xamarin modules, tutorials and training videos for the community. For instance, if you are new to XAF, you may want to check his webinar video:

My experience with the DevExpress Frameworks has grown as they have developed as products. I have been using XAF and XPO from the day they were released, which means I began with XPO way back in 2005. Before becoming an independent consultant, one of the last tasks I had as a lead developer in the company I was working for, was to evaluate frameworks to create a unified ERP. I was already using the DevExpress products and when XAF was released, I fell in love! I also continue to be a big XPO advocate and use it exclusively in all my projects, from ASP.Net MVC, ASP.Net Core to Xamarin and lately UNO platform.

For the full list of Joche's contributions and also full bio, please visit his web sites: https://www.jocheojeda.com | https://www.bitframeworks.com | https://www.xafers.trainingFor more XAF getting started tutorials and videos, refer to this DevExpress documentation page.
