Integrating Reveal with Visual Studio for Mac

The quickest way to get Reveal running with your Visual Studio for Mac projects is to link against the RevealServer.framework in the Debug configuration of your project.

  1. Right click your iOS project in Visual Studio for Mac and select "Options"
  2. Select Build → iOS Build
  3. Ensure that the "Configuration" is set to your Debug configuration. Be sure not to ship RevealServer in a release build of your app.
  4. Add the following argument to "Additional mtouch arguments":

    For iOS targets:

    --framework:/Applications/Reveal.app/Contents/SharedSupport/iOS-Libraries/RevealServer.framework
    

    For tvOS targets:

    --framework:/Applications/Reveal.app/Contents/SharedSupport/tvOS-Libraries/RevealServer.framework
    

    This assumes you've installed Reveal.app in to your Applications folder. If necessary, change the path to point to where you've installed Reveal.app.
