Dynamic Language Hosting

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 1206999973

On my talk at TechDays2008, I noticed the audience was looking more to integrate IronPython/IronRuby on their existing C# apps, than using it as a standalone language. In order to get one of this two languages in your application is to host a DLR engine.

It’s very easy to do this, so easy I guess it will be be used, even when it’s not the best solution (just an hintch). As usual, Michael Foord puts it plain simple, with a couple of examples for you to get started.

This is a great excuse to start allowing scripting over you application, using one (or even both!) of this great languages! As I mentioned in my presentation, there are power users who would want to code something in this languages (that are really, really simple!) and start using the full power of your application!
