FWIW http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/ has general developer info. Please add to it if you can.

Tomas made it easy to develop against Mono on Windows. See attached.

no guide so far.

To work and browse the IronRuby source I've been using monodevelop.
For ruby dev I've been using textmate on mac, gmate (plugin for gedit) on ubuntu and notepad++ on windows, as well as Rubymine on all platforms but that doesn't feel completely right.

With monodevelop you can open the IronRuby solution as is and start hacking.
there should be a dev.sh file which should set the right environment variables and aliases when you source it.  I know the ironruby team did work to make ironruby work properly on mono a while ago.

Hello everyone,

Recently I've been trying develop a gem with native extensions in C, Java and C# just to learn what's involved. When working with IronRuby, I ran into a few small issues so I figured I'd learn how to build and modify IronRuby source so I can take a shot at fixing these issues and contribute *something* to the project, if possible.

Now, when working with IronRuby I'm having a pretty hard time in both cases because I'm not on Windows. For now I'm on OSX, and when I return this oh-so-awesome-but-hugely-expensive laptop to my employers, I'll be developing on Linux. Can you help me or give me any advice on how I can get started fixing bugs on IronRuby when developing on Mono? Is there a guide somewhere already on how to get a dev environment up on Mono using Emacs/TextMate/MonoDevelop?
