Rails on .NET

Just saw this and thought it was interesting…

It does sound interesting although they are working on 1.8.2.

Sounds like a very interesting academic research project. I don’t think
it’s
feasable though in the real world… I don’t see Microsoft pushing this
over
C# or VB.Net… and most Ruby devs I know wouldn’t touch .Net.

It’s still cool though.

It would be more interesting if they could make Ruby run faster under
Windows :slight_smile:

David Simmons, Smalltalker and dynamic language speed guru*, was
recently interviewed in Bitwise magazine, where he talked a little
about the challenges of putting dynamic languages on the CLR:

He also talks a little about Ruby and complexity.

always agree with him, but hey, disclosure.

It’s certainly worth “touching .NET” if it means you get access to the
Windows Forms APIs and to automatically access other C#.NET and VB.NET
code via the CLR. Even if this subset of classes were unmodifiable in a
meta-programming sense, it would be great to be able to do so.
