Forum Cross Platform with Xamarin

Total newbie question: Can you develop a Windows and Mac app on a Mac?

Hi, Never used Xamarin before and assessing for our next project.

Can you develop one codebase on a Mac and then compile a Mac desktop and Windows desktop application from it?

I assume you have to compile on a windows machine for windows, but you can develop the mac version, and then just checkout out the project, tweak and compile on windows?

or would it be two separate projects, one mac, one windows, which had some for of shared code base?

    You cannot compile/build Windows apps on the Mac.

    However you can compile a Xamarin.Mac on Visual Studio on Windows.
