D Add-In for MonoDevelop
C#

readme.md

Mono-D is a language binding for MonoDevelop for the D Programming language.

Project site.

Few (none?) GNU/Linux distros package a new enough MonoDevelop required by Mono-D. You can download pre-built binaries built with mono3 below. Unpack to /opt/mono.

How to initialize Mono-D development under Linux

  • Setup MonoDevelop to use /opt/mono instead of other runtimes
    • Open MonoDevelop
    • Go to Edit -> Options -> Projects tab -> .NET Runtimes
    • Enter /opt/mono as new runtime if it's not there already!
    • Select it as standard runtime
    • Now you can build Mono-D with its gtk-sharp dependencies and no Mono.Cairo conflicts
  • Clone Mono-D
    • Open a terminal in your projects folder
    • git clone https://github.com/aBothe/Mono-D.git
    • cd Mono-D
    • git submodule init
    • git submodule update
  • Build Mono-D
    • Open & build the main solution
    • Add symlinks from projectdir/Mono-D/bin/Debug/* to your MonoDevelop AddIns folder
      • cd /opt/mono/lib/monodevelop/AddIns
      • ln -s -d %YourProjectDirectory%/Mono-D/bin/Debug D
    • In the solution view, open the MonoDevelop.D options -> Properties -> Run -> Custom Commands
    • Choose Execute
    • Set /opt/mono/bin/monodevelop as executable
    • Working directory can be left empty
    • Confirm via OK
    • Press F5 to debug

How to initialize Mono-D development under Windows

  • Clone Mono-D
    • Open a git bash in your projects folder
    • git clone https://github.com/aBothe/Mono-D.git
    • cd Mono-D
    • git submodule init
    • git submodule update
  • Build Mono-D
    • Open & build the main solution inside Visual Studio or Xamarin Studio (the latter is required to do changes on Gtk#-based Option Panels etc.)
    • Add symlinks from projectdir/Mono-D/bin/Debug/* to your MonoDevelop AddIns folder
      • Run the make symlink.bat that is located inside the folder root
    • You might want to set a new default executable path to XamarinStudio.exe, but normally, this is not necessary if you've installed XS via the normal installer
    • Run & Debug Mono-D
