Grasshopper implements IronPython, an implementation of Python that is linked to the .NET framework. Learn the differences between the two and the advantages of IronPython in Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] As we have been working through…these Python exercises,…you may or may not have realized…that we're actually working in a version of Python…known as IronPython.…IronPython is a form of Python Two,…and it's the same in every way except that it's been…developed to work within the dot net framework.…The dot net framework provides common tools…and libraries required to build Microsoft applications.…It provides a framework of standard libraries,…data types and classes that can be used…by other dot net languages, such as Csharp, Fsharp,…and VB dot net through the use of the…common language runtime module, or CLR module.…
One of the main features of the dot net framework,…therefore, is that different programming languages…can be used with one another.…So libraries written in other languages…that are on the dot net framework can be used…with one another.…The benefit of this is that it greatly expands…the amount of libraries that we can import…and use within our scripts.…Up until now, we have been importing the…
