You guys should totally make this work with NuGet

Just a suggestion. I've had to switch to a different project (Jurassic) because I had way too much trouble with ClearScript, which I'd kind of wanted to use. The problems I had were:
  • The NuGet package ClearScript.V8 didn't actually come with the native V8 dependencies which it requires to do anything useful with V8, and you don't offer a binary build on CodeProject which can be easily downloaded and added to a project without having to try and build myself.
  • Following your instructions and the provided V8 build script I was unable to build V8 myself due to some kind of V8 build error (gyp?)
  • Eventually I managed to extract a working build from another NuGet project, ClearScript.Manager which worked great on my local machine, but after all that, it doesn't work on my server, which is Windows Server 2012, 64 bit. I think I read somewhere in your discussions that this is a known issue?
Anyway, would love to see a bit more progress on this front. You have a great project but the challenges presented are currently insurmountable for my purposes.

Sorry to hear about the problems you had with ClearScript. As you mentioned, we don't distribute binaries and can't help with the NuGet package issues you encountered. We do however want to make it as easy as possible to build ClearScript and would love to know more about what went wrong there.

Hey guys, a little late on this to help you out....but I put together a new package called ClearScript.Installer ( This should install a compiled version of ClearScript and also properly set up all of the file dependencies in the project. I'm going to be using this package in my ClearScript.Manager package. Seems like splitting this out would help out a lot of people going through the hassle of compiling/distributing ClearScript.

Keep in mind that this is compiled against .Net 4.5 (it's 2 years old now), so If you want an earlier version of .Net you are on your own.
