Getting Started

The official release of the Monocross framework is downloadable from Google Code using the download button on this page. The project templates will give you a good starting point with your mobility project. If you have no idea what to do with these downloads, we recommend reading chapter two “Setting up your development environment” in the Cross-Platform Mobile Development in C# book.


Download the Monocross framework.

The mobile framework and project templates are available to the right.


Get Microsoft Visual Studio or MonoDevelop for MacOSX

These applications are what you need in order to build, deploy, and run the apps.


Install SDK’s

With the development environment installed, you now can install the SDK’s for the device platforms you are interested in developing for.


Install Monocross Project Templates

As a convenience, project templates have been built that can add the appropriate references and add stub code for your own implementations.
