When it rains, it pours. If you're following along, you'll remember that the WPF/XAML Conversion Tool Contest officially ended this past Friday at midnight. And while I haven't yet had the time to review the submissions (which doesn't include a couple that were sent in via e-mail), a friend of mine mentioned that he had heard about "another Illustrator exporter." So, tonight I did a quick search on Windows Live, and whaddya know? It popped-up fourth on the list.
This is awesome news! You see, I haven't had the time to add any new functionality to my Illustrator plug-in, and I'd begun to worry about how much time I'd be able to dedicate in the future. So not only was I excited to hear about a new exporter, but I was completely thrilled to read that it's written in C#! And if that isn't enough, the source code has been checked-in to CodePlex! Okay, I need a few more exclamation points!!!!! :-)
On to the important stuff. Here's the CodePlex project where you can download the bits. Read Pavan Podila's post announcing the exporter and a follow-up with a little more information.
I couldn't find any installation or usage instructions, but I was able to figure out one way to use the tool (perhaps there are more):
If you can't tell, I'm quite excited about this tool. A huge thank you to Pavan Podila for his great work! I can't wait to see where this goes.
Oh...I added it to my WPF Tools and Controls page too.
I updated the CodePlex page with a screenshot and some usage instructions. Thanks for pointing that out.
