[Mono-osx] Use of Eclipse as a .NET IDE

I just use the mono package from http://www.mono-project.com/
Downloads. Slickedit automatically detects and parses all of the Mono
framework libraries for code completion / tag insight. You can also
explicitly tell it where to look for libraries to parse if you've put
them somewhere unusual.
When you set up a project in Slickedit, you can specify post build
command line actions and 'execute' commands. I set up an ASP.NET
project so that it builds by executing a makefile target, and then
launches xsp as a post-build command line action. I have the
'execute' target set up to launch the site in my default browser. In
practice, it's kind of like using VS w/o the integrated debugging.
The only thing that is annoying is that changes to the aspx files or
web.config require re-running xsp. Xsp seems to cache the page
independently of it's modification date. This can be kind of annoying
if you are making a lot of html changes to the code that don't really
require a recompile.
For GUI or CLI stuff you should be able to set up something similar.
You would just use 'mono [path to exe]' to execute a CLI app, or you
could set up a post-build action to macpack your GUI app and just
use 'open [path to bundle]' as your execute target.
