CS-Script is a CLR-based scripting system that uses ECMA-compliant C# as a programming language.
- It is one of the most mature C# scripting solutions, and it was the first comprehensive scripting platform for .NET.
- It supports both hosted and standalone (CLI) execution model that makes it possible to use the script engine as a pure C# alternative for PowerShell.
- It also extends the .NET applications with C# scripts executed at runtime by the hosted script engine.
- Including (referencing) dependency scripts from the main script
- Automatic referencing external assemblies based on analyses of the script imported namespaces.
- Automatic resolving (downloading and referencing) NuGet packages
- Possibility to plug in external compiling services for supporting alternative script syntax (e.g. VB, C++)
- Scripts can be executed on Windows, Linux, and OS X (the last two will require Mono)
- Full integration with Windows, Visual Studio and Notepad++ (CS-Script extension for Notepad++ brings true Intellisense to the 'peoples editor').
- It allows you to execute a complete C# module (C# file).
- You can also execute the C# file as an external process e.g. from command-prompt.
- You can link multiple inter-dependent C# files at runtime and execute them as a single unit.
- You can easily reference the external dependency assemblies.
- It also supports debugging scripts.
You can easily install it from the Package Manager Console window by running the following command.
