We have an add-in to provide Cobra support including syntax highlighting, compilation and interactive debugging:

In February 2013, Xamarin announced a rebranded version of MonoDevelop named Xamarin Studio for Windows and Mac. The same Cobra addin for MonoDevelop will work in Xamarin Studio.



Windows Users

If you are running 64-bit Windows, you'll need to install Cobra targeting the x86 platform. See the addin installation instructions for details.

Mac Users

Support for installation of the addin on Mac was recently broken. Please help contribute by fixing the installer to work on Mac with Xamarin Studio. See here and here

If you're on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and using MonoDevelop 2.8, you can update to MonoDevelop 3.0 via this PPA if you choose to do so:
