Continuum is described as "a light-weight native OS X IDE for Mono".

It is hosted at as an open source project. Written by Jesse Jones.

There is no specific Cobra support at this point, but Continuum has a pluggable architecture and it's open source, so it should certainly be possible.

If launched from the command line, Continuum may say:

WARNING: The locate database (/var/db/locate.database) does not exist.
To create the database, run the following command:

  sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

Please be aware that the database can take some time to generate; once
the database has been created, this message will no longer appear.

You don't have to create the "locate" database, but Continuum's "open selection" won't be able to find files and right-clicking on types won't let you open the associated file.

As of 2010-07, the Continuum launch script inside the app needs write access to the app directory. So if you have trouble launching, make the app directory writeable and try again.
