program with IronPython, but has the disadvantage of it not being possible to compile assemblies instead of deploying source code. One developer at least is keen to change this and has started the "Hungarian Phrasebook" project to create an IronPython pre-compiler for Silverlight.
This is a topic I've looked into a bit, and discussed on the IronPython mailing list, and came to the conclusion it's not easily possible. (There is no cross-compiling support in Reflection.Emit and the APIs used by the Python compiler Pyc will only save to disk which doesn't work in Silverlight.) There is no code in the project yet but I hope it works.
Works perfectly now. So IronPython 2.6 promises to be a viable option for extending ArcGIS. My enthusiasm has been renewed.Nice to finish on a happy note.
