Hi,

Are you going to migrate CleaScript on .NET Core platform?

Regards,

Hi Guillaume,

We have no such effort underway. ClearScript's V8 bridge uses C++/CLI, so it can only work on Windows regardless of the runtime. And since the legacy script engines (JScript/VBScript) are also Windows-only, cross-platform runtime support isn't a priority, at least for now.

The best path toward a cross-platform ClearScript could be the recently open-sourced Chakra. This JavaScript engine is similar to V8 in performance and features, but with an API that's consumable directly from managed code. We're looking into the possibility of supporting Chakra in ClearScript.

Thanks!
