IronPython 2.0 RTW + Silverlight 2.0

15-Apr-15 : Please ignore -- obsolete technologies

Following on from the β2 sample

Changes made as follows:

  • web page page, silverlight object type : type="application/x-silverlight-2"
  • web page, fallback download location : "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=124807"
  • AppManifest : RuntimeVersion="2.0.31005.0"
  • AppManifest : add <AssemblyPart Source="Microsoft.Scripting.ExtensionAttribute.dll" />
  • AppManifest : remove <AssemblyPart Name="System.Windows.Controls.Extended" Source="System.Windows.Controls.Extended.dll" />
  • app.py -- remove the line clr.AddReference('System.Windows.Controls.Extended, Version=2.0.5.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35')
  • Delete all earlier assemblies and use all the assemblies from C:\Program Files\IronPython 2.0\Silverlight\bin.

Or, from scratch, with the embedding paged base around C:\Program Files\IronPython 2.0\Silverlight\script\templates\python\index.html ...

app.py

app.xaml

AppManifest.xaml

The XAP file is now down to 935kb, which considerably closes the gap with Jython 2.2.1's 670k but is still noticeably larger than a minimal Jython 2.1 applet:

       956662 Dec 13 17:50 app.xap
         2266 Dec 13 17:53 index.html
         2071 Aug 13 22:02 jython.html

However, now both products are at a stable release, it starts to make sense to actually use the technology.
