I'm planning to do howto in next few days or on my holidays in July.
So this is the story: we did several presentations in last month and a
half on various Croatian
Microsoft DevUGs and I was surprised how small was the knowledge about
mono in general.
So I decided to show how good mono really is. Did MVC 2 out of the box,
even XS template.
Then skipped MVC 3 (had no time because of projects) and went directly
to MVC 4. I gave
myself/ourselves 3 days to try it and did it in 8-9 hours.
1. VIsual Studio template for MVC4 application
2. a bit web.config tweaking
3. a bit of references tweaking (those that are not yet integrated in
Mono like EF)
1. mostly copy local = true.
4. there are some issues, but ASP.net swallows exceptions (they are
there, but not propagated)
1. some packages (still) write into registry (I'm not sure which
one, but excpetion is there)
2. few issues with case sensitivity for css files in
1. currently we have 3-4 proof of concept projects mobile/desktop + web
and we have tried even sample with Razor/ASPX rendering in common
2. when I get some time I'd like to test more WebAPI
3. default register/authentication has SQLServer backend and I haven't
time to remove that
4. next step would be to exclude dlls from template and move to those
in Mono GAC
(less copy loca = true), but this much more information (rundown
what is where
in .net and mono)

We have VS template, but they are different from XS/MD (at least I think
it is just folder structure right? You could unzip it and use it as "XS
We did presentation "2 hrs, 4 man hrs, 8 platforms" where we did small
pushing images onto server - our version of Instagram/Picasa. In this
our Mac guy Ivan/Iki (he was in Your presentation on Evolve 00:50) did MVC2
template and showed that that works, pushed solution to git, I took on
side and added MVC4 app, added models, views, controllers and web
that into git and he could run it on Mac.
I'll upload VS template on our sever and force myself to write howto. is
yes pls try from git:
rest of the samples might work, but this is our construction site and
guys are testing and working
on some parts.
