Replicating Streaming UI App in Xamarin Forms

Howdy!!! ?‍♀In this case we are going to replicate a Streaming UI App obtained from Dribble. You can check the design  here!

⚠ Before starting, to get the best out of the post, I’ll leave you some instructional notes so that you have a better experience reproducing the UI:

➖ At the beginning, you will see an image with the original UI where you will see divided into blocks as we’ll be working each part of the design.
.
➖ Each block presents the image with the design explicitly that we’ll be working on that block, they are highlighted in a box.
.
➖ In each of the code blocks you can see a comment that says: “Here add the code that is being explained in the next block“. To keep you as focused as possible, this part indicates you that the next block code explanation goes right where the comment line is added.
.
➖ I will not be using styles so that the properties added to the various components can be seen and understood faster in the explanation process.
.

Let’s start!

Let’s divide the original design into blocks

To better understand, I have divided the original design into blocks, which are listed in the order in which we will be reproducing each one, these are:

Let’s start! For the first step we will be working with the “Main banner” block and to replicate it we just need to add the following parts:
.
➖ Main picture
➖ Actor name
➖ Actor description
➖ More option
.
Defining the main structure: To start developing the complete design structure that will contain our first screen I will use a Grid. It is important to note that we are using an ScrollView to prevent complications when viewing on small screens.
.

.

⚠ As you can see, I added the BackgroundColor property to start replicating as in the original design with black background color.
.
Then, add the Main banner components:

.
Now, let’s create the actor information block which is composed by the following components:
.
➖ Actor picture
➖ Description
➖ Born information

.

.
Finally, let’s create Movies block. This block is my favorite ? and to build you need to add the following components:
.
➖ Title & Select all option
➖ Movies list
.

.

In the main image of this post, I added some screenshot of the IOS version,  now I’ll leave those of the Android one.

And our Streaming  design is done! ?.
