I’ve just realized that I’ve been preaching about IronRuby and the DLR - telling you to use it, showing you how, but I’ve never deep dived into it by myself. So I’ve decided to go deeper and examine IronRuby in “real life” situations. I want to run into its rough edges, write workarounds, feel the engine.
How far are we from V1? Is 0.3 really 70% far from being complete? from being ready to use?
I’m planning to find out the answers in the tough way – by getting my hands dirty!
You’re probably wondering how I’m gonna do that. Well, it’s simple – I’m going to take ideas and develop them entirely in IronRuby. I will write here about my experience and share my thoughts, critic, successes and failures.
My first idea I’m going to work on is an ironic one – An IronRuby Visual Studio Integration.
The target is to achieve a simple code coloring ability and an auto-completion mechanism for IronRuby inside VS.
If you have more ideas for the rest of the journey, please let me know!
Off we go!
