DLR on top of the Micro Framework?

Jul 22, 2010 at 8:47 AM
I've been thinking a lot about this lately. Theoretically, one could run IronPython, hosted inside a small C# app, on an embedded device. I mean, the architecture of the DLR does make it seem possible. But what do you guys think? PS - Unlike the Compact Framework, the Micro Framework does have Reflection, because I just read this blog where the author ran some VB code on top of the Framework. http://www.christec.co.nz/blog/archives/category/net-micro-framework

I don't think anyone has tried that yet, but based on what you're saying, should be relatively straightforward. We'd love to hear the outcome if you give it a shot. One team member did play with using our Expr Tree interpreter to run IronRuby code on a device (using NETCF). While that was successful, our interpreter isn't complete yet or fully tuned, so you probably can't run all the code you might like.
