Not ready yet, but I'm slowly working on making it work.

Do you have estimate when you might support Windows Universal apps? We are trying to decide if we need to replace this toolkit in our Windows Phone 8.1 apps or if you are close and we can wait for the toolkit to be updated. Thanks very for your help.

I have the core library building as a universal class library now. I'm planning to get the charting one working over the weekend and release the nuget packages.

It looks like from our codebase that all we use is the WrapPanel. Will that be included in your release?

Well, the chart controls have some dependencies on classes in the core library. Almost all of the current code of the core library should work on the phone.

I got it to compile and run on Windows Phone 8.1 last night. I still need to do some work on the core toolkit though before I push it and start working on the NuGet packages.

Hi,
any news when the Windows Phone version will be online on Nuget?
Thanks for your great work.

Hey, I was wondering if you had any news on when the Nuget packages for WP8.1 will be available.
Keep up the good work

I'm getting there. Just need one or two evenings to put it together. For now - grabbing the sources is still the best solution and really - you want to prune the project to just the parts you need to not have to carry all the stuff that's in the toolkit.

Hi,

I would like to ask if the wp8.1 version of the toolkit will work on wp8.

Thank you for your work, it has saved me more than once.

IIRC wp8 only works with Silverlight, while this toolkit targets WinRT, so directly wp8 is not supported, but I don't actually recommend using entire projects or DLLs of the toolkit in your apps since it might be more than you need and you might find you can easily take bits and pieces of the source code and they should mostly work in a Silverlight app. In fact some of the code is ported from Silverlight Toolkit so you could grab them from there (if they aren't already in Windows Phone Toolkit) unless you want to back port them from WinRT to wp8 in a weird twist of history. There are surely some parts that won't work in wp8, but many should be easy to move with perhaps only minor namespace name changes.

Thanks for your reply. I was mostly interested in the ring/pie slice control and the charting controls in general. I will look into them and see if I can make them work in wp8.
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks again.
