I can't figure out how to get Mono to open this on the Mac. Using the terminal throws up a bunch of errors and it won't open in the Finder because it's not recognized as a application
This is awesome! I've been using CFXR (basically, SFXR for Mac) but it's 32-bit and 32-bit apps can't run on newer versions of Mac OS This is better anyway. Has a lot more features and versatility
It's actually possible to package a Mono app for Mac OS so it's easier for Mac users to run. I think the developer should do it. I found this info here
macpack (Mac OS X only)
macpack is a tool that must be used to bundle Cocoa# applications into Double-Clickable, Finder friendly, bundles on Mac OS X. It bundles static libraries and resources, as well as generates a basic info.plist into the .app bundle.
For example the following commands are used to build the CurrencyConverter.exe into an application bundle:
$ mcs -g -debug+ CurrencyConverter.cs -out:CurrencyConverter.exe -pkg:cocoa-sharp $ rm -rf CurrencyConverter.app $ macpack -m:2 -o:. -r:/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/lib/ libCocoaSharpGlue.dylib -r:CurrencyConverter.nib -n:CurrencyConverter -a:CurrencyConverter.exe
The resulting CurrencyConverter.app is just another Mac OS X application as far as the Finder is concerned, and can be opened from Finder, or launched from Terminal using the open -a CurrencyConverter command.
