IronPython in SharpDevelop

SharpDevelop is an open-source .NET IDE for Windows. (The cross-platform Mono .NET IDE MonoDevelop started life as an early fork of SharpDevelop.)

Features of SharpDevelop include:
  • Support for Mono
  • Supported languages include C#, VB.NET, Boo, IronPython and F#
  • IDE features like refactoring, code completion, Windows Forms designer
  • Can run from a USB device
  • Read only projects
  • Parallel build support for multi-core machines
  • Multi-framework targetting (.NET 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5)
  • Integrated support for tools like FxCop, Wix, NUnit, TortoiseSVN, MSBuild etc
