Amazon Web Services (AWS), the latest component of the tool, has made its Porting Assistant (GUI) open-sourced.
The Porting Assistant for.NET was introduced last July. It scans apps and generates.NET Core compatibility assessment reports. This helps speed up porting to the new platform –.NET Core, its successor, and.NET 5 — which is running on Linux.
AWS had previously opened sourced the tool’s database store and, later, the client and sourcecode analyzer used in the assessment APIs. PortingAssistant.UI is the latest component to join open source. It provides the source code for the tool’s UI.
AWS UI, which offers React components to Web developers, was also outsourced. These components were used in.NET porting tool. It was built using React and the Electron application framework.
AWS stated that AWS UI is a collection React components that create intuitive, responsive, accessible user experiences for web apps. AWS UI is available under Apache 2.0 open-source license. This AWS UI release is only the first step in a larger project to create an open-source design system. Keep checking back for more updates in this area!
