Elysium : WPF Metro Style App UI Framework for .net 4.0/+


I am using this f/w since long time and i am happy with it. They have really nice metro style UI components, themes etc for WPF applications. I am also using ActiPro components which are Paid but this is free and far better.

Here is all the details on how to get started :

Alternatives of Elysium

1) Modern UI WPF (MUI)  : I really like this one too as it’s robust & used by many big companies in their legacy systems.  It’s basically developed from MahApps Metro UI
