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.
- download the MonoFramework-2.8 for Mac OS X Intel then install it
- download and install MonoDevelop
- create a simple console application in C# and compile it
- 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.
