    Has anyone gotten git VC working with Monodevelop?

    I've got a bitbucket repo set up + registered and keep trying to push to it but get some weird .NET error.

    i was hoping monodevelop would work bc it has an add-in specifically for git VC but it kept doing all kinds of weird shit. it would either give me weird missing .NET subthing errors or, after i reinstalled everything to try and fix that, it would just do absolutely nothing when i tried to push changes etc. and to make matters worse once i reinstalled it, it got really confused about my 3 monitors of different sizes, and kept freezing and killing itself when i tried to move it from a 27" to my 50". when it wasnt doing that 75% of my monodev window would be black for no apparent reason. just not worth it

    a vm would work too i guess but i got git bash for windows setup and conemu as well so i could more easily custom split my tabs, & also so i can have terminal tabs at all. it works rlly well so far, and i think has less overhead than running a full vm

    4 real commits SUCCESS im a winna. this will make coding on the train rlly ez

    altho i have not yet tested how this solution will integrate with Unity, so that should be fun. i assume i can just edit my code like this and have unity auto-refresh to detect changes to my .cs scripts, but it's all some convoluted bullshit so who knows. will be a bit before i need Unity's graphic interface again tho so w/e for now

    do you know off the top of your head if there's a default unity option for specifying a path to the code editor you want it to call whe nyou doubleclick a script, sear?

    go to Unity preferences

    then change the external script editor

    can pass arguments in the box below

    I'm not sure which IDEs have built-in support from Unity (I'm pretty sure VS does). Getting Sublime Text to work properly requires a little bit of extra work, so I suppose that's one advantage for MonoDevelop.

    nice, thanks

    i'm ok w/ just using vim through git bash rather than a full IDE for now, altho maybe i'll feel differently eventually

    speaking of config options, one thing i rlly wish unity allowed was a full reconfiguration of its viewport controls. i'm way more comfortable w/ blender's viewport controls than unity's and would love to change unity's behavior to mimic blender, but unity is a lot less flexible than belnder there from what my googling has told me

    yeah that would be nice

    I wish they'd support skinning the editor UI. The dark/black version that comes with the professional license is so much easier on the eyes

    would also be nice to customize the inspector without writing 500 lines of editor-specific code so that you can put two int/float variables on the same line with a basic label

    but I've gotten used to most of it + it's free, so I can't rly complain

    yeah skinning would be awesome. most of my coworkers at work code without so much as syntax highlighting, half a scheme that also gives a nice dark background. i do not for the life of me understand how ppl tolerate coding like that. i'm kind've indifferent ot the full suite of IDE niceties (mostly bc i've never bothered to learn them enough to get dependent on their power, probably), but i would kill myself before spending years of my life coding in black and white

    i think it's mostly bc they've never thought of themselves as part-programmer, even though they do a lot of coding (mostly in SAS, which itself is a disgusting abomination that doesnt even seem to have a native notion of a function, just macro text-substitution expansions), so most of them (there's 1-2 exceptions) haven't actively developed any kind of computational/CS savvy, and they're very resistant to even very minor chnages. so we have conversations where i'll say stuff like 'hey syntax highlighting will make u love ur life & that editor ur using alrdy supports beautiful syntax highlighting let me show u..' and they'll immediately reply 'no im fine as thnigs r go away'

    which is i guess ok since it mostly just means they suffer & r less productive / happy than they could be but that's their call. however that same attitude (& the comically anachronistic design of the SAS language) has caused more major problems, e.g. 95% of our staff dont know what a class is, what object-oriented programming is, what a function is, or what functional programming is

    I was using MonoDevelop on my MacBook. I'm gonna check out Sublime Text now though, never been a big fan of Mono.

    Can't code on anything but dark background with nice highlighting ever since I started using themes. One Indian dude at work does white background and tints his whole monitor this ugly yellow/orange color. I thought his monitor was broken but he claims it's better for your eyes or some shit.

    MonoDevelop is the bloated clunky tank of IDEs for Unity

    gets the job done, but ur just gonna have to deal with the daily crashes, occasional weird behavior, and slowness

    I think it looks pretty good with the Nightshade color scheme & Monaco font
