[Mono-aspnet-list] Porting Website with Codebehinds

I'm in the process of evaluating Mono for my job -- We'd love to break the
shackles Windows has on us right now! To that end, I've managed to get our
framework building and passing tests on Linux, which is a step in the right
direction for sure.

Unfortunately, our two websites are of the 'Web site' vs 'Web project' type.
I'm not sure what the exact term is, but the websites don't have .csproj
files, and are compiled 'on the fly', both the .aspx and .aspx.cs files sit
on our webserver and are updateable.

It's my understanding that Mono doesn't support this type of web project.
I'm willing to lose the 'on the fly' and 'updatable' nature of the sites, no
problem -- but if at all possible I'd like to avoid converting these sites
to .csproj web projects. I'd like to leave the current workflow as
undisturbed as possible for the developers working on Windows/VS. I'm
willing to put it work to create a mono-specific (I'll write Makefiles until
my eyes bleed if that's what it comes down to) build process if it's
possible to make the sites work with no changes (prior to Mono build at

I'd appreciate any tips or pointers in the right direction, thanks!
