I’ve been working with .Net lately for bluekiwi on a full Microsoft environment as I am working on a Microsoft addin. Since my work also included an open source library, I was curious how this library could be used on Mac OS X.

That lead me to test Mono, “an open source, cross-platform, implementation of C# and the CLR that is binary compatible with Microsoft.NET” and MonoDevelop, the open source IDE to replace Visual Studio in non Microsoft environments.

  1. download the MonoFramework-2.8 for Mac OS X Intel then install it
  2. download and install MonoDevelop
  3. create a simple console application in C# and compile it
  4. run in from the terminal with mono sampleapp.exe

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Next step, trying to see if I can make a minimal web app using .net on mac or not.

    I enjoy playing with my computer(s), listening to Bob Dylan (and related artists) and watching movies (especially if they were directed by Martin Scorsese or John Cassavetes). Sometimes, I play a little guitar... If not doing any of the above, I am either riding a small red bike around Paris, or, making videos. About my videomaking please check out World Wide Angle and its blog.
