Journal: Starting out with Nancy on Mono Pt.2
Hello world is great, but it's time for some real code. I plan to develop a simple flash-card style application to help me study organic chemistry.
I'll be developing on Debian Testing/Mono with MonoDevelop.
FAIL. Stop reading now, I gave up with Massive and am switching over to EntityFramework. Thus, I am currently building Mono from source.
I don't like the XML mappings that are used with NHibernate, so I am going to use the excellent "Massive" from Rob Connery. Since I'm using MySQL, I'll be working with Alexander Nyquist's MySQL fork of Massive.
Tiny and simple, a perfect compliment for our tiny and simple web framework.
First things first, let's fork massive-mysql. I put it into a separate project; you don't have to. Whichever route you choose, you'll have to add some references to your project.
In the project that contains your Massive.*.cs file:
- Install mysql.data from NuGet
- Add references to:
Let's check that everything compiles and move on to some code.

The first code I'll write is the ORM code. To prepare, I have drawn a rough diagram of the tables the app will need.
