Getting Started

If you rather jump into some code than to walk through a Quick Start Guide, a good starting point for development with the Anyline .NET SDK is to clone our .NET repository from GitHub. There, you can find an example app for .NET MAUI with full source code for use cases that you can use as a starting point for your specialized scanning workflow.


As the Libraries are bindings for the native platforms, the implementation of the MAUI app mainly depends on the implementation in each plataform. Here you can check again the minimum requirements for each platform:

To use the Anyline SDK for dotnet-android you’ll need:

  • Visual Studio 2022

  • An Android device with SDK >= 24 (Android 7.0)

  • Decent camera functionality (recommended: 720p and adequate auto focus)

To use the Anyline SDK for donet-ios you’ll need:

  • Visual Studio 2022

  • An iOS device with version iOS 12

  • An iPhone 5s

  • An Apple developer account and your device set up for development.

Apple Developer Account

In order to set up an Apple Developer Account and the device, please follow the Device Provisioning Guide from the Xamarin Documentation.

Developing on a Windows Machine

If you want to develop for iOS on a Windows machine, you will be required a Mac Build Host. For more information, check out the Pair to Mac for iOS development from the .NET MAUI Documentation.

Anyline .NET SDK Guide

In this guide, we want to show you how you can quickly start scanning using the Anyline .NET SDK. Feel free to contact us if you feel that it is incomplete or particular sections need elaboration.

The Anyline .NET SDK is available for .net-android and .net-ios. The Quick Start Guide for MAUI is available here:
