from one monkey to another

Mono-a-mono is a build-pack that aims to make developing with Open Source .NET libraries such as Mono, F#, ServiceStack easy.

Five minute Summary

How does it work?

We provide a collection of Vagrant scripts and chef recipes that are will install the base packages for the OS (currently only Ubuntu is planned) and other dependencies using Chef.

What will I get?

You will get a Ubuntu Linux VirtualBox that you can ssh into locally. You will be able to run graphical IDEs like monodevelop.
