I searched MSDN this morning for “ironpython”, and found a CTP had been posted yesterday. It installs into Visual Studio and makes it possible to write ASP.NET websites using all the dynamic language Python. This is very interesting as it’s the first dynamic language will full tool support in Visual Studio.
I personally am going to investigate it for use in testing. If some of my code depends on the system clock, it would be so nice to just fake out the system clock in real-time with the power of a dynamic language instead of having to fake it out with more intrusive techniques such as putting it behind an interface.
