Compile IronPython scripts into a stand-alone .NET assembly.

Project description

IronPyCompiler is a library for compiling IronPython scripts requiring modules from the Python standard library (or third-party pure-Python modules) into a stand-alone .NET assembly (a DLL file or an executable), using

In order to compile IronPython scripts, we can use, which is included in the IronPython distribution. However, does not check dependecies of the scripts, which results in an incomplete .NET assembly. What is worse, the module modulefinder of IronPython does not work correctly. This is why compiling IronPython scripts is more difficult than it looks.

IronPyCompiler will solve this problem. It examines what modules your scripts require, using the module modulefinder of CPython, and compiles them with into a stand-alone .NET assembly, calling ipy.exe.
