NetSparkle on Mono

Mar 22, 2011 at 5:10 PM

Hi,

I just checked out the current version and opened Netsparkle.sln in MonoDevelop on Debian. After adding the two missing projects (wpf is not supported), set them back to .NET3.5 and starting the TestApp... it just worked.

Ok, the resulting form looks a little bit strange, but - hey! it worked :-)

Is that helpful somehow?

Hi,

this is great so it would be cool to have a mono support which is using GTK or QT UI for Linux. What we also need in that case is a support for RPM or DEB files as well. Would realy cool to have this ;-)

I did not see any Qt support on Mono at the first sight. And I am not sure, how this WinForms application is mapped, but I guess it is already mapped to Gtk (somehow with resizing features missing)

Additionally, I am not sure how mono packages are distributed. As nuget is not implemented, I guess I'd love to add  references as I did it before: in a special lib/tools folder somewhere in the project hierarchy. That means, no special .dev/.rpm would be needed.

But what is missing indeed: a batch file to compile the project in a special build folder - which is running at the end msbuild, psake, fake, rake... with Mono on Linux in mind, I would almost suggest rake?
