MonoDevelop is an IDE primarily designed for C# and other .NET languages it is an open source integrated development environment for the Linux platform, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. It enables developers to quickly write desktop and ASP.NET Web applications on Linux, Windows and Mac OSX. MonoDevelop makes it easy for developers to port .NET applications created with Visual Studio to Linux and to maintain a single code base for all platforms. Its integrates features similar to those of NetBeans and Microsoft Visual Studio, such as automatic code completion, source control, a graphical user interface (GUI) and Web designer.

There are basically three layers:

  • The Core layer provides basic services for applications (not specific to development tools).

  • The Projects layer implements the project object model, which development tools can use to organize files. Using this API it is possible to develop applications that create, open, change, build and do whatever you need to do with MonoDevelop projects.

  • The top IDE layer is an application that puts together all the previous services to offer a powerful and extensible IDE for managing development projects. (Reference:http://monodevelop.com/Architecture_Overview)
