DLR Language implementations using the DLR version in C# 4

Sep 24, 2010 at 5:47 PM

I've come across a bunch of DLR language implementations, but most of them use earlier versions of the DLR.

It seems there's little interest in getting them to run using the latest DLR.

What's out there for the current DLR besides Symbl, IronPython and IronRuby?

I wouldn't necessarily see the lack of languages currently available as lack of interest. I think it is going to take a little bit of time after the DLR becomes stable to see the growth of the set of languages. To have a completely DLR-based language takes quite a bit of effort in quite a few technologies. I believe that the DLR is going to revolutionize the teaching of Computer Science.

We have the beginnings of a version of Scheme that we are migrating to be fully DLR-1.0 compliant:

This isn't our main focus, so the Scheme development is a bit of a back-burning item. We are also working on a new drag and drop visual language, called Dinah, which is also based on the DLR-1.0:

If there are other DLR languages, we'd like to include them in our educational bundle, called Pyjama. If anyone is interested in working on DLR languages for education, please drop me a line.

IronJS I believe runs on the latest DLR, as does Clojure.

What happened was that there was significant changes from 0.90 to 0.91 to 0.92. The API has been fairly stable since 0.92 so all the project that ran on 0.92 should not have much trouble running on 1.0. I compiled http://aspclassiccompiler.codeplex.com against 1.0 a couple weeks ago but that was really because of the lack of time.
