What language are you interested in supporting?
I just added Haxe support for MonoDevelop in the last week. There's a lot
of "arcane" knowledge that you find while searching through the
MonoDevelop source, but (especially since it is fresh) I'd be glad to help.
The biggest hurdle for me was getting my add-in to appear. You basically
create a C# library project, add an "*.addin.xml" file, set it to embed as
a resource in the properties, compile and set the DLL under the
~/.local/share/MonoDevelop-2.8/LocalInstall/Addins for Linux,
~/Library/Application Support/MonoDevelop-2.8/LocalInstall/Addins for Mac
or C:\Users\(your user
name)\AppData\Local\MonoDevelop-2.8\LocalInstall\Addins for Windows.
Once your add-in is being loaded, its much easier to begin experimenting
and coding from there :)
I added a symlink so every time I restart MonoDevelop it loads the latest
compile of my add-in. If you are interested, you can find my source code
