Migrating from Silverlight.FX

Mar 9, 2011 at 8:36 PM

I'm sure I read a comment here about someone converting over from the SilverlightFX framework (and being pleased about it).  I'm about to embark on converting over a medium sized legacy app and was looking for pointers.  Especially if there was some way to do it in chunks...

I haven't done any ports myself, so I can't speak specifically on that. But, you should be able to do it in pieces. The most important thing you need to do from a Caliburn.Micro perspective is get the bootstrapper set up. Then you can use pieces of the framework here or there as you see fit. Technically, you don't even need the bootstrapper, you just need to make sure that the framework gets configured correctly. So, you could just study the bootstrapper implementation, replicate that in your app.cs and be good to go.
