Try WikiClientLibrary on Xamarin Workbooks!

I’ve noticed that MS announced their first pre-release for Workbooks, which allows you to experiment with .NET Framework / .NET Core / Xamarin / WPF in a Jupyter-like fashion. It’s like an enhanced version of C# interactive window.

What is really an improvement, is that you can add reference to NuGet packages in a similar way as you are working with a full C# project, so it exhibit a chance for me to play with WikiClientLibrary. Hopefully, it might give Wiki contributors some convenience on automated edits, such as word-replacement in batch.
