Dynamic Language Runtime

Has anyone looked into this project on CodePlex and thought about how it might be used with Irony?

Look at these:




I personally gave up on the idea, for a simple reason: DLR is too complex for a simple guy like me. Waaay too much stuff....

Thanks.  From the looks of the DLR project, it does seem to be a very complex version of what you're already providing.  It probably just depends on the design, complexity, and features of the language you're building as to whether you go with the DLR or the built-in runtime in Irony.  I could see someone starting off with the built-in runtime and then moving to the DLR, especially if they're wanting to provide a debug experience.

I'm going mess around with it and see just how difficult it would be to use.  The IronLua project is a good example.  You should probably make reference to it on the home page or maybe I'll put a section in the wikibook.
