This is for ProMesh.NET a Web platform built on top of the basic System.Web that replaces ASP.NET:
I was a little curious to see how ProMesh.NET (MVC Web Framework for .NET 2.0) would run on Mono (if at all), so I did the following:
Download the VMWare image with a pre-installed Mono installation on SUSE Linux 10.2 Download VMPlayer (free) Copied the latest ProMesh.NET source tree to the virtual machine Fired up MonoDevelop Compiled the framework... Works (well, it compiled) Copied the ProMesh.NET demo application to the virtual machine Compiled the demo app... Works! Started xsp2.exe (the lightweight .NET web server for Mono) Opened the index.ashx page using FireFox: WORKS Went through the complete demo site. Everything worked!
I was utterly amazed by the painless process of compiling and running a ProMesh.NET application on Mono, something I've never tried before (I did have some previous experience with MonoDevelop, but not a lot).
This is pretty exciting stuff, knowing you can just grab your ProMesh.NET web application, dump it on a Linux box and run it from a Linux web server.
