Cobra Language Binding for MonoDevelop

This is an addin for MonoDevelop that allows you to write, run, and debug programs written in the Cobra programming language.

It currently supports the following features:

  • Syntax Highlighting

  • Underlining Syntax and Other Errors

  • Folding Regions

  • Multi-file Projects

  • Compilation and Execution

  • Interactive Debugging

  • Limited Code and Parameter Completion

  • Mouseover Tooltips

Compiling and Installing

This addin is primarily developed on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS using MonoDevelop.

However, it will work with Xamarin Studio on OS X using Mono or on Windows using either the .NET Framework or Mono.

Minimum Requirements

  • .NET Framework 4.5 or Mono 3.2.1

  • MonoDevelop or Xamarin Studio 5.0

  • Cobra svn:3115 (post 0.9.6)

Installing the Precompiled Package

A MonoDevelop addin repository is available at

  • From the Tools > Add-in Manager window, select the Gallery tab.

  • Select "Manage Repositories..." from the dropdown menu.

  • Click Add and then enter the repository Url.

  • Under "Language bindings", select "Cobra Language Binding" and click Install.

  • Restart MonoDevelop to ensure all dependencies are correctly loaded.

Installing from Source

An installation program that builds and installs the addin from source is provided for convenience. Just execute...

cobra install.cobra compile and execute the installation program.

If you just want to compile the addin and not install it, you can execute:

cobra install.cobra -run-args compile
