MonoTouch and Delphi Prism

by John 8/16/2009 2:56:00 AM

MonoTouch is the Mono edition for Apple's iPhone and Touch devices. I've only had the preview for a couple of days but I'm extremely impressed by what I've seen. I never imagined I would be able to leverage my .Net skills to develop iPhone applications.

The preview provides integration and developer tools for C# with the MonoDevelop IDE on OSX but I wanted to try with Delphi Prism.

The screenshot below shows Visual Studio running inside a Parallels session, the iPhone emulator and a terminal window.

  

 

I started off with a Mono console application and converted an existing sample application from C# to Delphi Prism.

Once compiled, I switched to a terminal window on OSX and ran MonoTouch tools against the compiled to exe to produce the application package. The final step was to launch the application inside the emulator.

Monotouch calls tools from the Apple iPhone SDK, so if you wanted a post build command in VS it would need to talk to a process on your mac
