I own a mac, but I'd like to use my PC/windows as my primary development device.

Is it possible to write software on Windows and use the Mac to compile/build/sign/deploy?

I know I can remote in, but that is awfully slow.

  • Have you checked out the new .Net Core? I believe .Net Core can be installed on Mac and allow programs (developed on the version of .net) to be executed and run on a Mac or Linux device. Microsoft made .Net ope source and Cross-platform. .Net Core is the first iteration, I believe. – Wes Jun 22 '16 at 16:16
  • Furthermore, Java can be run cross platform due to it's JVM execution. – Wes Jun 22 '16 at 16:16
  • I want to code in swift or objective C – whydna Jun 22 '16 at 16:36
  • I'm not sure about that then... – Wes Jun 22 '16 at 16:44

It has been done. Just Googling for it, I found this article on StackOverflow that explains how to do it.

Just glancing at it, it looks like there is come commercial software you might have to purchase in order to do it.

  • Seems like these solutions involve installing a VM, or cross-compiling c#. I want to write Swift/objective-c on windows, and built using my mac. – whydna Jun 22 '16 at 17:00
