Fwd: [IronPython] Announcing IronEditor - An Editor for IronRuby, IronPython and other DLR languages

I have looked at the code. Some neat stuff. However my idea is that we
can
leverage as much as we can from the DLR platform itself.

For example we can create our own editor and use the code sense and
token
infrastructure for intellisense and syntax highlighting. I have a
working
version of that implemented in WPF using its RichTextBox. Unfortunately
the
RichTextBox DOM (FlowDocument) is too heavy for code editor and runs
poorly.

We need a lightweight version of RichTextBox for code editor - our
custom
control. It should also run on Silverlight as well. Expression Blend and
PowerShell v2 have implemented similar controls in WPF for their code
editing (Blend - XAML; PowerShell - cmdlet/script editing). So it can be
done.

Then we can build a lightweight IDE (like TextMate) for both Silverlight
and
WPF with a transperant project model that works both on web and locally.

All this seems to be a perfect project for showcasing DLR API -
architecture
and services as well as Silverlight / WPF.

Comments?
