The main concern is that we are shoe-horning a dynmamic language into
a static world and that's not really the right thing to do.  With
enough effort we might be able to pull it off, but there might be a
better way to go which enables ASP.NET w/o the feeling of it not being
Python.  There might also always be rough edges that we can never
quite make work correctly - and given we've spent all this time making
IronPython work like CPython we don't want to just throw that away.

One pythonic way of "hosting" IronPython within ASP.NET is to use WSGI
(http://wsgi.org/wsgi/What_is_WSGI) Seo did the original work and I
have made his stuff more WSGI PEP compliant and work with the latest
IronPython Beta hosting API. SInce Seo is not near a network
connection for a few weeks and cannot add these changes to his code, I
have put my changes up under subversion at:


It does give you access to "true" ASP.NET page generation, needs some
docs and a lillte more work. But I have been using it for RSS/Atom
feed generation from a ADO.NET database under both IIS ASP.NET and
Apache mod_mono.

This email post of Seo's should help you get going:
