ported square\picasso to Xamarin.Android
Lately I’m developing on Xamarin.Android and I needed a good library for loading images which also has a good caching mechanism. I found a very good library for this purpose, but the problem was, that it was only available as a native Android library called jar.
The library offers some great functionality out of the box which I didn’t found on any library for Xamarin.Android so far. The functionality it offers is as follows:
- Efficient caching strategy
- Image downloading with cancellation built in
- Complex transformations and resizing
For a full list of features, I refer to their website.
Anyway, i ported the library and made it available on Github. The repository I created for this can be reached here. All you have to do is built in yourself.
