OSX support

Hey

Are there any plans for supporting OSX?

If not, how trivial would it be to get it running on OSX? Any pointers?

Thanks

I have no immediate plans for porting xTile to OSX myself, however I suggest checking out libGDX. It runs on OSX (and iOS, Android amongst others) and now supports Tide maps.

Thanks for the reply. libGDX is not really viable I'm afraid as I'm working with Monogame and am looking for a decent tile library, rather than write my own.
I'm quite happy running tide and then compiling the maps to xnb's (until the monogame content pipeline supports other platforms) in a VM , but i'm doing my main development in osx.

I'll have a play around tonight and see if I can get xTile compiling under mono on my mac.

Cheers

Someone did manage to get it to work with Monogame. Have a look at this thread.

Coll, thanks, I'll take a go at that :)
