.NET to JavaScript compiler

JSIL is a compiler that transforms .NET applications and libraries from their native executable format - CIL bytecode - into standards-compliant, cross-browser JavaScript. You can take this JavaScript and run it in a web browser or any other modern JavaScript runtime. Unlike other cross-compiler tools targeting JavaScript, JSIL produces readable, easy-to-debug JavaScript that resembles the code a developer might write by hand, while still maintaining the behavior and structure of the original .NET code. Because JSIL transforms bytecode, it can support most .NET-based languages - C# to JavaScript and VB.NET to JavaScript work right out of the box.

Raven is an Open Source (with a commercial option) document database for the .NET/Windows platform. Raven offers a flexible data model design to fit the needs of real world systems. Raven stores schema-less JSON documents, allow you to define indexes using Linq queries and focus on low latency and high performance.

- Scalable infrastructure: Raven builds on top of existing, proven and scalable infrastructure
- Simple Windows configuration: Raven is simple to setup and run on windows as either a service or IIS7 website
- Transactional: Raven support System.Transaction with ACID transactions. If you put data in it, that data is going to stay there
- Map/Reduce: Easily define map/reduce indexes with Linq queries
- .NET Client API: Raven comes with a fully functional .NET client API which implements Unit of Work and much more
- RESTful: Raven is built around a RESTful API

Raven is released under a dual Open Source license and a commercial license. Simply put, that means that it is freely available under the AGPL license but if you want to use this with proprietary software, you must buy a commercial license.

C# Developer Goodness, JavaScript Deployment Bliss!

Script# is a development tool that generates JavaScript by compiling C# source code. It is especially interesting for scripting-in-the-large scenarios that is commonplace in the current generation of HTML5 and script-based Web applications.

Script# lets you leverage the productivity of C# (intellisense, build-time error checking, natural language syntax), and the power Visual Studio IDE and standard .NET tools (such as msbuild, refactoring, unit testing, static analysis, code visualization, fxcop). Script# brings all this to you without abstracting the runtime environment - you're still authoring script, just with a different set of tools.

You can even use Script# to work against other existing frameworks and APIs such as jQuery, jQuery plugins and Knockout, and can be extended to work against other existing script.

Browserless JavaScript Unit Test Runner

JSTest.NET enables JavaScript unit tests to be run directly in the test framework of your choice (MSTest, NUnit, xUnit, etc) and all without the need for a web browser. JSTest.NET utilizes the Windows Script Host (CScript) to run fast, fully debuggable JavaScript unit tests!

JSTest.NET is a lightweight managed wrapper around the Windows Script Host (CScript.exe) available on any Windows machine. Other libraries for unit testing JavaScript require that you have either the Java JVM installed locally (as well as on your build server) as well as require an interactive UI (i.e., run one or more browsers to actually run unit tests). JSTest is focused on testing JavaScript, and NOT on UI validation. Unlike tools like JsTestDriver etc, JSTest can be run inside the unit testing framework of your choice; specifically MSTest, NUnit, xUnit etc.

In order to help simplify unit testing of your JavaScript code, JSTest has several common mocking libraries embedded for ease of use (JsHamcrest, JsMockito, JsMock, Json2, etc). Simply choose the desired library or libraries to mock out your classes (and browser!) and you are good to go. Since all JavaScript unit tests are run from within Visual Studio, simply launch a unit test in the debugger to enable debugging of your JavaScript as well.

In terms of performance, JSTest will run 1,000 typical JavaScript unit tests in approximately one minute on an Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 machine.

.NET

C# (pronounced “C Sharp”) is one of many .NET programming languages. It is object-oriented and allows you to build reusable components for a wide variety of application types. Microsoft introduced C# on June 26th, 2000 and it became a v1.0 product on Feb 13th 2002.

C# is an evolution of the C and C++ family of languages. However, it borrows features from other programming languages, such as Delphi and Java. If you look at the most basic syntax of both C# and Java, the code looks very similar, but then again, the code looks a lot like C++ too, which is intentional. Developers often ask questions about why C# supports certain features or works in a certain way. The answer is often rooted in it's C++ heritage.
