IronJS 0.1-alpha / open sourced

Jan 24, 2010 at 1:52 PM

I hope this is ok, but I just wanted to make a quick note that the language I've been building on top of the DLR has been open sourced, while it's still a very early implementation (written by me alone, in about three weeks - which include learning the DLR from scratch). The language is called IronJS and is a ECMAScript 3.0 compliant implementation of JavaScript.

You can find the source code, etc. over at http://github.com/fholm/IronJS/

Excellent! Please consider licensing it under the Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL) instead of the GPL, like IronPython and IronRuby are licensed.

After trying to untangle and understand the incomprehensible wall of text that is GPL v3, and talking to Bill Chiles on mail I've decided to change the license to Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL) instead, the motivations behind this change are simple:

  1. It's to hard for users of IronJS to untangle several different licenses 
  2. I want it to be open for as many people as possible

I've noticed there hasn't been an update posted to github in a while,
any chance you could merge your changes to github for the .NET 2.0
compatibility?

Thanks,

Hi!

I just have not had time to work on IronJS the past two-three weeks, work and other real life obligations have gotten in the way. I should be back on my normal schedule this week or the next, and will again be able to spend the time I want on IronJS - and you will see more updates to github again.

Specifically about the .NET 2.0 support, that is linked to the new compiler architecture I'm working on which will probably take a month or two more to get done (It all runs on CLR2 and Mono2.6 right now, and I develop for/on those platforms - but the code base is not in a complete/usable state as of now).
