Why would I want c# on my Pi?
- C# can be cross platform using mono
- .NET will do all the work for you (ex: open sockets, manipulate strings, query databases, etc)
- Well written C# is pretty
I don’t know maybe it’s just useful to not have to re-write code in Java or Python.
BTW this is for Raspian, although you can probably figure out how to use it with other distributions.
First things first, got to be up to date
sudo apt-get update
Now get mono
sudo apt-get install mono-complete
Or if you just need the runtime
sudo apt-get install mono-runtime
It’s big so this may take some time on your Pi.
Once finished all you need to do is run an app in mono.
