ASP.NET on Mac OS X and Linux
Currently, the only way to develop and run ASP.NET websites on a Mac or Linux computer is to install and use an open source version of the .NET Framework known as Mono. All of that changes this year, when Microsoft releases a new version of ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core 1.0.
If you want to learn how to use Mono on a Mac or Linux computer, here are some resources that will help get you started:
- About Mono
- Installing Mono on Mac OS X
- Installing Mono on Linux
- Running ASP.NET Applications Using Mono
For more information about ASP.NET Core 1.0, see these resources:
