Anyone had any experience with Script#?

Posted 19 December 2011 - 01:55 PM

So I saw this recently, thought it was a great idea.

Quote

Script# brings productivity to Ajax and Javascript development. Script# is a free tool that enables developers to author C# source code and subsequently compile it into regular script that works across all modern browsers, and in doing so, leverage the productivity and power of existing .NET tools as well as the Visual Studio IDE. Script# empowers you with a development methodology and approach that brings software engineering, long term maintainability and scalable development approaches for your Ajax applications, components and frameworks.

Script# is used extensively by developers within Microsoft building Ajax experiences in Windows Live, Office to name just a couple, as well as by a external developers and companies including Facebook. If you’re building Ajax-based RIA applications, you owe it to yourself to try Script# today and see if it can help improve your own Ajax development!


So is this practical or is it just a good idea?
I've downloaded it but I'm not the one to judge it, so if someone that has used it, tell is it good or not?

Why not?

I can't see any particular benefits.. I mean if you are already in C# why not just run with ASP.NET? Why make some compiler that tries to force it into javascript? I would almost prefer just doing the translation at hand and not take on tool and try to make it useful in an inappropriate situation.

1. I don't know a single line of Java
2. I'm totally new to ASP.NET so I can't compare it to anything

Oh and thanks for the feedback! :D

Java isn't Javascript, which what Script# is treating as the target VM.

Oh... Then sorry for the mistake.

I only work with MS languages and technologies. Reason? My f*ck**g school is sponsored by Microsoft (since the school is a private one), and they don't teach use almost nothing other than MS technologies! Picked the wrong school, oh woe is me, I'm going to endure it because I must then I'm freeeeeeee! :D

Exactly what's wrong with learning Microsoft technology and languages?

That's a bit simplistic. lots of things belong on the server, but lots of things belong on the client as well.

My point on it:

Since I'm in Serbia (that means technologically crippled) hosts charge more for server time. And since server time is expensive, then I would think the more that can be done on the client's side the better.

And:

Nothings wrong, the just don't teach us anything else. And we've already put up a petition for adding some other things to the learning program, but they've denied it.

In that case, why not teach yourself non-MS languages instead of utilizing tools to convert MS languages into non-MS languages? What I mean is why not just learn javascript? It's not to difficult to learn... I didn't go to school to learn any of my programming skills, let alone MS specific or non-specific skills.

They just throw A LOT of stuff into our heads and I think it would be actually too much to learn something on the side, although I will try it. We're learning .NET (and we have parallel classes of ASP.NET), we're learning the syntax of VB, C#, C++ (even Objective-C wtf?), we also have classes of Silverlight, also WPF, Windows Forms parallel, and all in different classes (that is one class is Silverlight, and the other WPF vs Win Forms). So yeah there's just too much information. But hey I guess java is similar to C# so I guess it won't be that hard to learn :D
