IronPython IronPython is an open source implementation of Python for the. NET which originated in IronPython 1. It also runs on Silverlight, a. This means that IronPython can be used for client-side scripting in the browser. IronPython is a Python compiler. It compiles Python code to in memory bytecode before execution which can be saved to disk, making binary only distributions possible.

Python is an Open Source, cross-platform, high level, strongly and dynamically typed, interpreted  programming language. IronPython is the Microsoft implementation of Python, in C , which has full integration with the.
NET platform and is available under a sane permissive license. The Python philosophy emphasises readability, clarity and simplicity, whilst maximising the power and expressiveness available to the programmer. The ultimate compliment to a Python programmer is not that his code is clever, but that it is elegant. For these reasons Python is an excellent first language, while still being a powerful tool in the hands of the seasoned and cynical programmer.
A programming language is a medium of expression - Paul Graham. It is the first English book on IronPython and is aimed at both Python and. NET programmers interested in IronPython. It includes a Python tutorial and chapters on embedding IronPython, system administration, plus web development with ASP.
NET and Silverlight. Silverlight can be used for media streaming, games and rich internet examples. NET applications. Just getting started with IronPython or wondering why you should be interested? This article introduces IronPython, explains how it came into existence and some of its more common use cases. The article also shows the basic IronPython and. NET integration with the interactive interpreter.
The IronPython interactive interpreter is a great way to learn plus a useful tool for working with the. NET framework.
Python for. NET Programmers. An introduction to the Python programming language for programmers interested in IronPython.
It covers the basic syntax and semantics and touches on how dynamic languages are better oops - I mean different to statically typed languages. For many. It also covers other editors and some of the standard Python development tools for code quality, debugging, code coverage, refactoring and complexity measurement.
Dark Corners of IronPython. The IronPython team have done a very good job of integrating Python and the. NET framework without having to change Python or introduce new syntax. Despite this there are various areas where you need to know some IronPython specific information; previous experience of Python or C alone will not be enough.
This article contains a lot of the nitty gritty details of how to use Python the language to integrate with the underlying. NET types and launching files with the IronPython interpreter. If you are new to. NET, this is a valuable tour of parts of the. NET 'standard library'. Dynamically Compiling C from IronPython. There are some things you can't do from IronPython, most notably applying. NET attributes to classes and methods. One approach to solving this is to create stub C classes.
This article shows you how to compile dynamically generated C to in-memory or on disk assemblies and then import them into IronPython - all from IronPython code. Functional Testing of Desktop Applications. An article on functional testing of GUI applications - with the examples written using IronPython and Windows Forms with downloadable example application with testing framework and functional tests. The CPython Server. It can send any response which can be read from IronPython.
This is one hacky! The example in this articles uses matplotlib to generate charts, which are displayed from an IronPython application. A discussion of asynchronous exceptions and aborting threads , and some simple examples of threading in IronPython. An experimental approach, using the CPython interpreter wrapper from Python. It has several limitations, but works! Slides from a few presentations I've done on IronPython.
Most of the information in these slides are also in the articles, which tend to be easier to read. If you click on the big '0' link at the bottom right of each slide, you can view the presentation as a single page with my notes visible. DDD 6: Dynamic Languages on. An S5 html presentation on Dynamic Languages on. Developing with IronPython and Windows Forms.
An S5 presentation on developing with Windows Forms. Presented in short form at PyCon by myself and a colleague. You can either view this as slides, or as a single longer page with lots of notes. Planet IronPython is an aggregation of blogs from developers who regularly use and comment on IronPython related topics. For my day job I work at Resolver Systems. We are creating an application development tool with a spreadsheet interface using IronPython. It is free for non-commercial and Open Source use.
For more information about how Resolver One works, and some of the cool things you can do with it, visit Resolver Hacks. Tabbed Image Viewer is an example application demonstrating Windows Forms, using a variety of controls in 18k of source code, including a really funky about dialog.
It also has C showing a custom executable the simplest example of embedding the IronPython engine and creating a C class and then using it from IronPython. I maintain it, with occasional contributions from Mark Rees and Seo Sanghyeon. Fepy is the community edition of IronPython. There are compiled binaries for Mono, extra standard library modules and patches that haven't yet been integrated into the official Microsoft release.

Python programs are actually compiled to byte-code before being executed, but the byte-code is then interpreted. In some ways this is similar to Java or. NET which also compile to byte-code. Because these languages are statically typed with JIT compilers, they are generally considered as compiled languages whilst Python is generally considered as being interpreted.

This page contains a number of recipes related to logging, which have been found useful in the past. Multiple calls to logging. This is true not only within the same module, but also across modules as long as it is in the same Python interpreter process. It is true for references to the same object; additionally, application code can define and configure a parent logger in one module and create but not configure a child logger in a separate module, and all logger calls to the child will pass up to the parent. Here is a main module:. Loggers are plain Python objects.
