    Hello silent community! Does anybody know how to pack resources folder with dll to mpack package with vstool?
    Taras Shevchuk
    Hi, @helviett
    I guess you search for something like this (shell command): "/Applications/Visual Studio.app/Contents/MacOS/vstool" setup pack YourProject/bin/Release/net472/YourProject.dll
    @ linux users: a compiling version of monodevelop 8.6 ready for testing: https://github.com/dotdevelop/dotdevelop/tree/dotdevelop_oe_8.6 . Currently not compiling on most plattforms: github-addin

    Hello, I am interested in your community effort to revive monodevelop as dotdevelop. I tried to compile the new dotdevelop_oe_8.6 branch on my ubuntu 20.04 system, but I get the following error during compilation:

    Xwt.GtkBackend/CustomListModel.cs(65,24): error CS0506: 'CustomListModel.Dispose()': cannot override inherited member 'Object.Dispose()' because it is not marked virtual, abstract, or override [/home/david/dotdevelop/main/external/xwt/Xwt.Gtk/Xwt.Gtk.csproj]

    steps as recommended in README:
    git clone -b dotdevelop_oe_8.6 https://github.com/dotdevelop/dotdevelop.git

    cd dotdevelop/

    ./configure --profile=gnome

    @eit52david Unfortunately the README file didn't include all necessary details. You have to install gtk-sharp2, not gtk-sharp3, https://github.com/dotdevelop/dotdevelop/blob/dotdevelop_oe_8.6/.github/workflows/monodevelop.yml#L22
    You have to completely uninstall gtk-sharp3 and then install gtk-sharp2.

    Hello monodevelop does not open for me. I wrote in detail here: mono/monodevelop#9665 can you help?
    @lextm I just check whether gtk-sharp3 is (still) installed on my system, but I only have gtk-sharp2 now on my machine. It seems like I forgot to remove libglib3.0-cil and libglib3.0-cil-dev :D now it compiles (without VersionControl addin)
    I need sme help with monodevelop and adding code snippets from external .xml file (on linux)

    try with .NETCore/.NET5?

    @helviett Starting from Jan 2020, VS for Mac and MonoDevelop were on separate ways, so if your goal is to develop an extension of VS for Mac, then the best resource is Microsoft at this moment. They didn't publish an article on how to extend VS for Mac 2019 (the old one is for VS for Mac 2017), so there can be huge changes coming in that closed source IDE.
    Lex Li
    @ramukka_twitter What kind of help do you need? Addins can define code templates (snippets) so you can follow examples like https://github.com/mono/monodevelop/blob/fb12ccb7f4245eca20803661deaa37ead0ec35af/main/src/addins/AspNet/Razor/Razor-templates.xml If your snippets are in XML files with another schema, you might convert to MonoDevelop's schema.
    can someone help with this error?
    mono_gdb_render_native_backtraces not supported on this platform, unable to find gdb or lldb
    Andres G. Aragoneses
    sounds like something you should ask in the mono channel, not here
    is monodevelop working with msys2_mingw64 >?

    Hello fellow devs I hope youre doing well. I downloaded Mono from the official page expecting an executable like VisualStudio on download. But apparently I just have a black wondow for commands? I just wanna use Unity. How do I proceed from this?
    Alexander Köplinger
    I deleted your last two messages because they violated our code of conduct
    yes, Mono is just the runtime and you'll need an IDE to develop graphically. check Unity's docs to see what they recommend

    Well, I think it's time to have my own little sunset of MonoDevelop. I'd like to say a huge thanks to everyone who's been involved in it (I recognise a good few names from this chat), it's been my go-to IDE for over a decade now. But, as the last of my OSS projects have migrated to .NET Core, I really have to let MonoDevelop go in favour of VS Code on GNU/Linux. I just had a look at DotDevelop and it doesn't seem to have gained enough traction to be useful right now. It's been a great run with MD all the same.

    Bye all!

    @lytico I have to put it on github at some point and anything that is worthwhile to you, you're more than welcome to. It has been a few weeks since I last opened it up. I will let you know when I have gotten around to adding the project to github.

    @lextm Ok thank you! I thought it was still open just wasn't sure if anything had changed in regards to its open-ness lol.
    As i said above ill post again when i get to uploading my code, idk if it will work with what you guys are doing, I doubt my skills are on the same level lol. It was a toss up between making my own IDE or OS, so I took what I thought to be the simpler route first. Not so simple hahah.

    Thanks again!

    I'm trying to use MonoDevelop with Unity, but it isn't showing me syntax errors or any other sort of help, which I believe it's supposed to.
    I went into MonoDevelop options and set the exe to the particular Unity editor I'm using, but that hasn't helped.
    Anyone able to compile/run Monodevelop 8.x in Ubuntu/Linux distros? I cant seem to compile it.
    restrictions: does not run on systems where net5 or higher is installed!
    Lex Li
    @AvianOverlord the official announcement was years ago, https://blogs.unity3d.com/2018/01/05/discontinuing-support-for-monodevelop-unity-starting-in-unity-2018-1/ Follow it instead of believe in any other way.

    Is there an easy way to generate & manage csproj/sln files from the command line ?
    I'm on OpenBSD, where the dotnet utility isn't available at the moment.. Didn't know if mono had their own tooling for that
    Mark Wardell
    can i add .Net Core 5.0 to MonoDevelop project types? .Net Core 6.0?
    Lex Li
    @BicycleMark You can, but that would be trivial because dotdevelop/dotdevelop#53
    Mark Wardell
    @lextm looks like it is an open issue.... Guess I will pick my 'hacky trick' from the box of known 'hacky tricks' Would be nice to get this to get this one closed.
    Lex Li
    @BicycleMark move to VSCode or Rider and you can save a lot of time.
    Mark Wardell
    I hear alot of nice things about Rider

    hi there! anybody already installed monodevelop on 20.04?? Do you guys think its a good idea to mix in the monodevelop 18.04 repo into a 20.04 install ?
    I tried to add the 20.04 ... but it seems theres a whole lotta other mono stuff inside there but monodevelop shines with absence...
    Why for christs sake is the package the repo was made for missing(for app. 6months at least now)...
    not that i want to nag around, but a reasonable explanation would satisify my soul already
    Lex Li
    @patarok Any good idea takes significant amount of efforts. You can find some personal observation for your reference https://blog.lextudio.com/the-end-of-monodevelop-80b383dab34b
    hola hola hola
    Hello! Does anyone know if Monodevelop still supports classic ASP.NET Web forms programming?
    Lex Li
    @carevalolagos_twitter be mindful of what you are looking for. MonoDevelop does not have a visual designer for WebForms, so if you really want to program WebForms, VS on Windows is u hi our only option. You should also try very hard to migrate to ASP.NET Core/Blazor before more things break.
    Peter Patoschka
    @lextm Well, I see someone wrote this is the end of monodevelop, but I think, we don’t have to accept that and should try to keep it alive, as C# is a good language and monodevelop may be the best option to develop C#/.NET on Linux. They could also call it “Visual Studio for Linux” (!!!! YOU CAN UPVOTE THIS ON MICROSOFT FORUMS!!!!)
    Rider is nice and can do a lot of things, but it’s way too expensive for most young devs…
    And I really don’t mind it being (completely or at all)open source or closed source, as long as we can use it for free or by paying a small donation to some devs.
    Can’t see a problem with that since I would have to pay for Rider also(which is also closed-source).
    If there is just the tiniest ounce of truth in MSs new slogan : “Microsoft Loves Linux” they should also really look into it.
    MD failed when it ran into the debugging dotnet core problem. I also remember seeing one of the main developers mentioning that he "dogfooded MD, and found a bunch of issues..." and I was like, why are you not doing that regularly? when the main devs are not even using the product they're making it's a bit telling.
    Rider is good, it's a lot faster than VSCode and MD, it's expensive, but if you're working on an open source project that updates regularly, it's pretty easy to get a free license. it's disapointing that MD has apparently given up alltogether, but not unsurprising.
    I don't recomend VSCode at all, it's slow, and confusing.

    where can I find tutorials for monodevelop 7.8?
