Best Alternative to .Net on Linux

Postby tokra30 » Mon Jun 20, 2016 5:24 pm


I am a .Net developer who is looking at switching platform to Linux for some of my projects and was wondering what are the alternatives to .Net on linux, I know there mono, I have used this with Xamarin and VS 2015 for android development. But I was lookign for some thing more cross platform there mono.

That can can be used for application development.

I was thinking about python but I prefer some thing closer to C#, I detest Java (Controversal I know) it seems like you have to write more code then you have to in .Net to do the same thing.

Also want some thing with a decent GUI builder as I dont raily want to have to had code the GUI.

I am a bit out of it but Ruby might be closest to what you are looking for, also look out for "Ruby on Rails".

There is also the HTML desktop idea espoused I think by Mozilla Foundation, so there PHP might suggest itself as "local web app" coding language.
