Sample project to see the problem...
When I have embedded js files in my project I put the minified and the plain version under different ItemGroups in the project file and add some conditions to embed them only with the right dll.
<ItemGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Debug|AnyCPU' ">
<ItemGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Release|AnyCPU' ">
(see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/646dk05y.aspx for schema details)
When compiling from VS2010 it works perfect, however when compiling from MonoDevelop it always include both minified and plain files...
MonoDevelop's internal build engine has limited support for evaluating MSBuild conditions on items, but not item groups. We have no plans to add this feature to the MD internal build engine.
In future we plan to migrate to the "real" MSBuild build engine, which will fix it. This is available as an experimental option in the Preferences->Build options panel - it does not yet work for all project types.
I've checked in version 184.108.40.206 and worked perfectly.
How this will work on Linux? There is no .NET framework installation there...
Mono has an MSBuild implementation called "xbuild", and MD can use that.
Just for information...
Compile as expected...
