In this chapter, we will build a chat app with real-time communication. In the app, you will be able to send and receive messages and photos to and from other users, which will appear without the page needing to be refreshed. We will look at how we can use SignalR to implement a real-time connection with the server.
The following topics will be covered in this chapter:
- How to use SignalR in a Xamarin.Forms app
- How to use template selectors for a ListView
- How to use CSS-styling in a Xamarin.Forms app
