Personally, I use emacs for editing source and make to compile it.  I
tend to run Beagle out of the source tree by hand.  But I am an old

I know that some other people do use Monodevelop to do source hacking,
but I think they still use make to build it.  Because Beagle predates
Monodevelop our source tree and library installation doesn't match up
naturally, and so you have to do some work to get it to do all the
autocompletion, etc.  There's no reason why it *has* to, though, and
I'm open to changing it.  If you've played around with Monodevelop and
like it quite a bit, a good way to get started would be to set it up
so that you can do development in it.  That'll give you an idea of the
different libraries, how they work together, and how the source code
is organized.
