MonoDevelop (also known as Xamarin Studio) is an open source integrated development environment for Linux, macOS, and Windows. Its primary focus is development of projects that use Mono and .NET frameworks. MonoDevelop integrates features similar to those of NetBeans and Microsoft Visual Studio, such as automatic code completion, source control, a graphical user interface (GUI) and Web designer. MonoDevelop integrates a Gtk# GUI designer called Stetic. It supports Boo, C, C++, C#, CIL, D, F#, Java, Oxygene, Vala, and Visual Basic.NET.

MonoDevelop has included a C# compiler (an alternative to MSBuild and CSC) since its earliest versions. It currently includes a compiler that supports C# 1.0, C# 2.0, C# 3.0, C# 4.0, C# 5.0 and C# 6.0.


MonoDevelop is an IDE for the .NET platform with features comparable to Microsoft Visual Studio. Highlights include:
  • Multi-platform IDE and user projects (Linux, Windows and macOS)
  • Multi-language (C#, F#, Visual Basic .NET, C/C++, Vala)
  • Project templates for C#, Visual Basic, Boo, Java (IKVM) and C/C++
  • Code completion support for C#, code templates, code folding
  • Customizable window layouts, user defined key bindings, external tools
  • Integrated Debugger for debugging Mono and native applications
  • Integrated Compiler (supports up to C# 6.0)
  • GTK# Visual Designer to graphically build GTK# user interfaces
  • ASP.NET web projects with code completion support and testing on XSP (Mono web server)
  • Source control, makefile integration, unit testing, packaging and deployment, localization
