Does this exist yet in a GitHub repo? or a download link somewhere?

Hi Matt,

here I have to add a "mea culpa": I had to stopp to work on this repo because the Italian government announced the general use of the electronic invoice: every company has to emit the invoices as XML file and to deliver it through a central system driven by the Ministry of Finance. Now, the systems seems to run (BTW: the communication part is written entirely in X# and consumed by the VO applications through a COM interface), and after cleaning up a few other projects (that were also stopped) I will return to work on the X# Tools Library.
The X# Tools library will have mainly 3 parts:
- a general purpose library that contains classes and methods without any connection to a GUI
- a WinForms GUI library that contains controls and windows for the WinForms GUI class library
- a WPF GUI library that contains controls and windows for the WPF GUI class library

Basically, these library are already there, but they contain only a fraction of the code they should contain, and hopefully also others will contribute - it should be a community effort.

So, if people Fork the project on GitHub, then add changes to their Fork, then send a Pull Request, you’d be a happy man, right?

I’d love to see that happen as a display of real community involvement in X#, not just as a consumer, but as a contributor as well.

It seems many developers are just not that familiar with the workflow of Git projects in a multi-developer workflow, but I hope it can become as common and us sending an email.

of course!

But my hopes are relatively reduced since my experience with the docs wiki: several people have write access to it, but only one person has added something. But nevertheless I think it is an important project because it can have contents that the original documentation don't has.

I will be very happy if people contributes enhancement requests and corrections to the Tools library....

Once I become more proficient in X#, it’s definitely something I would like to contribute to. But it’s way too early for me now but this will definitely be on my radar screen.

I’m betting there are many community libraries from FoxPro that would be handy in X# so that’s the angle from which I would probably first contribute.

Hi Matt,
I'm looking forward to your contributions!
I'm sure both communities can benefit a lot from each other, and it is always good to look over the edge of the plate.
