Download the Community Edition

For Hobbysists, Open-Source Projects, and Academics


Download links:

  • Version 1.x: This legacy version is the stable and mature, but it lacks many of the improvements of version 2.x (read below). It can be downloaded by clicking the following link:
    => Download version 1.2.3 
    (Released in July 2019 - for Visual Studio 2012 to 2019)
  • Version 2.x (pre-release): This is a pre-release of the upcoming version 2.x, which provides major improvements and optimizations, especially as far as the app launch performance and the generated JavaScript quality are concerned. The full list of benefits can be found on the Roadmap page. You can find the latest download link by going to the forums at the following URL:
    => Download version 2.0 Preview (Alpha) from the forums (for Visual Studio 2015, 2017, or 2019)
The features are the same in version 1.x and version 2.x as far as C# and XAML support are concerned (both versions are maintained in parallel), but version 2.x is a rewrite using the Bridge.NET underlying technology instead of JSIL. The full list of benefits can be found on the Roadmap page.

 Due to the fact that we have just announced the open-source Community Edition, we have not updated the version 1.x yet to reflect this new edition, so you may still get some old messages referring to the 'Professional Edition' that requires activation. Those messages will soon be removed in an upcoming update. In the meantime, if you are eligible to use the Community Edition (for hobbyists, open-source projects, and academics only), please ignore those messages related to the 'Professional Edition'. If you are not eligible to the use the Community Edition, please buy the Commercial Edition.
