MVVM Framework Explorer update and top MVVM Frameworks

A couple of days ago I received an email from Geert van Horrik, a developer working on a new MVVM Framework called Catel. Geert asked me to update my MVVM Framework Explorer app in order to include his new framework. Here is the resulting updated app (click to launch):

Besides adding this new framework, I updated the download count for each framework, which allowed me to do some statistics. Here are the download progression for the most popular MVVM frameworks between July 2010 and January 2011:

Discover and compare existing MVVM frameworks !

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a blog post where I compared the existing MVVM frameworks. This post became a bit famous in the WPF/Silverlight blog world and I received a lot of feedback to update the list, fix information, etc. I also got a request from Erik suggesting me to put all the datas in a matrix.

Today I’m proud to announce the MVVM frameworks Silverlight application (click the image to open the Silverlight3 page).

A couple of observation:

  • please contact me via this blog or twitter if you find incorrect information
  • I’m not judging anybody’s work by giving rating, it’s just my personal feeling to have an easiest way to sort the data

Hope you’ll like it :-)
