Finally trying to check in Iron7

Hi All

I’m finally trying to check iron7 into the GitHub

I’ve selected to put it in /Hosts/Silverlight/Iron7 - where it can be a
sibling of WinPhone7 - and I’ve mostly got it building here

However, I’m still hitting the issue that Iron7 has a couple of external
dependencies - System.Windows.Controls.dll from the Silverlight toolkit
and
Newtonsoft.Json.Silverlight.dll from Json.Net - and I really don’t want
to
remove these from the app (sorry)

I’m really not sure whether to check these in - I’m kind of scared about
messing up your lovely source tree.

Sorry if this sounds “wet”… I’m a long way from being a git or build
tree
expert. Does anyone have a strong feeling about how I should check this
in?
I’m more than a bit tempted just to check this into a new codeplex
project
using MS-PL (or whatever license you would prefer) - someone who knows
their
way around the ironlang source tree can then merge this in if they want
to?

Thanks again for all your fab work on ironruby - still loving coding in
it
:slight_smile:

Any external dependencies should go under the Util/ folder. Include
any licenses as well.

Otherwise, just check it in where you see fit and send a pull request.
git is really good at moving files around, so it can easily be
corrected afterwards.

What is the motivation for including Iron7 to the IronLanguages repo?
Couldn’t it just be a separate github project?

Thanks Jeff

I’ve just sent a Pull request - I hope that iron7 is successfully
included
in the Hosts directory.

Included in the source is:

  • my code - Iron7
  • image derived from “Pinwheel Galaxy” on Flickr - used creative commons
  • System.Controls.Windows.dll - which i think is part of Silverlight 4 -
    not
    the toolkit
  • the Bing Maps SL control for Windows Phone - it wasn’t clear to me
    what
    the redist rules were on this dll
  • JSON.Net for SL WindowsPhone - including license

Iron7 itself is a separate solution - it definitely builds in WP7
Release -
alongside IronLanguages SL3 Release

Any problems… you’ve got my email address…

Stuart

P.S The code doesn’t currently contain any copyright headers - I want to
donate the source to IronRuby.net - Apache license sounds OK to me - but
do
intend to keep publishing the app on the Marketplace - not sure if
there’s
any way I can specify that! (No worries if not)
