You can find out version of TextTemplating.exe in the MonoDevelop.app
bundle. It's dependent on the Mono.TextTemplating.dll.

There's no integration for running T4 files in MD except as part of
ASP.NET MVC projects, nor is there a file template. However, there is
some basic editing support - highlighting, folding, outlining.

However, using "Preferences->External tools" you can add a command to
the tools menu, to run TextTemplating.exe on the currently open file.
