    Umbraco on mac with mono


    I found some old posts, saying that Umbraco on Mono (on a mac) is buggy and hard to setup, because Mono is not a fully .net solution. The XSP part could also be a bit shady to get working.

    Does anyone have a umbraco solution on a mac without a VM? If yes, are there any problems related to it?

    With VS migrated to MacOSX I wanted to give Umbraco a try natively on Mac OS X using XSP4 and Mono. But I am running into a lot of issues - it was expected, right :).

    The first issue is fcnMode attribute on line 82 of the web.config. Seems Mono OS X cannot understand this attribute, I removed it and now I have another issue: Cannot find type Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication.

    I installed Umbraco via nuget.

    Does anyone have an idea why I am having this issue?

    Regards, Ansar

    Umbraco requires 4.5 and it looks like Mono supports ASP.NET 2. I think we will need to wait for Umbraco to run on ASP.NET Core for it to run on Mac OS X (without a VM).

    In a word - no.

    See the hosting requirements - it's a .NET (not Core) project so won't run natively on a Mac.

    V9 I believe will be fully .NET Core but that's a way off.
