Use XAML as XD's file format

It would be nice if Adobe supports XAML standardization, and made XAML its code behind Adobe XD, including integration options with Xamarin.Form.

    I fully agree @Emasoft

    "XAML is an UI markup language. Recently XAML addes native support for SVG elements. It means that you can export an entire prototype made in AdobeXD in XAML, and import it as the UI layer directly in Visual Studio or Visual Studio Mac. That would make UI prototyping and UI development amazingly fast."

    I am talking about import .net projects like WPF into Adobe XD and design it with built-in tools, effects, text boxes, icons... also it could be nice to create new specifics with visual mode.
    make everything based on fully drag and drop mode.
    also, it could be nice to import HTML files and begin to edit and add new effects them.
    all that Adobe needs is make everything fully and make an environment to build new animations, tools (customise the tools), forward animation and effects with a mouse only also can be perfect to combine them.
    full drag and drop with special tools + good effects, for example, add new effects to the header, footer, the body content is first thing that any user is thinking it.
    some websites that I love to design like them are:

    Import and Export the projects directly

    it would be nice to import and export the projects directly.
    also, some built in effects and tools can be perfect.
    add effects with only set some settings and with visual mode.

    Here are two ideas:
    1: Make the code behind Adobe XD be XAML, ie the file generated by Adobe XD be a XAML file, and Adobe support the definition of the XAML standard.
    https://github.com/Microsoft/xaml-standard/issues/182
    2: Since the code behind of Adobe XD is XAML, implement an exporter of UI elements to XAML, how this would work:

    For example:
    Let's imagine that you drew a rectangle with yellow rounded corners and added the following text in it "Login", right after you've grouped it, and now you want this to be a button, simply you click convert to button, and then click on toggle For XAML or click show XAML code and copy to clipboard, then you just paste the code in Xamarin.Forms in Visual Studio.
    This would make life easier for millions of developers.
