Mobile support?

Is it possible to use IronRuby to write apps for Windows Phone, Surface,
and/or Windows 8 Metro?

Are there sample programs for this?

It used to be possible in some kind of way on WP7. Not sure what
and how will it work on WP8 or later.
You can try look at this article: (bare in mind it
written more than 3 years ago, so I’m sure it wouldn’t work as is).

There is the Iron7 app for WP (
which lets you write ruby scripts on the phone via IronRuby. I’m not
if this is open-source but at least we can be confident that IronRuby
work on WP :slight_smile:

Good luck,
