Project Description
IronEditor is a WinForms application which allows you to write and execute code against languages implemented ontop of the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR). At application currently supports IronRuby and IronPython.

This project has been created as an effective way to try out the DLR languages, instead of having to enter scripts manually using the console application. The purpose is for learning the languages and playing with the technology, in the future hopefully the application will grow. The editor currently supports IronPython and IronRuby, with extension points for additional languages. The application runs on both .Net 2.0 and Mono 1.9.1, however you will need Visual Studio 2008 to compile the application.

Planning 2.0
Now the DLR has been offically released and IronPython has hit RTM, I am in the planning process for IronEditor 2.0. 2.0 will take more advantage of the DLR's Hosting API and become a much more useful editor. I will also be creating a series of blog posts while creating the editor to describe how to interact with the DLR.

The project has been created by Ben Hall
