Python for .NET

IronPython is an excellent solution for developers who need their .NET support for their Python applications. That is, unless they also need libraries that are only supported by C++ extensions. This is where Python for .NET comes in.
 
Unlike IronPython, Python for .NET does not compile to the Common Intermediate Language (CIL). Instead, it exposes .NET libraries to standard Python applications. This means extensions like the GUI frameworks wkPython and Win32All are still available.
 
Microsoft provides tools for wrapping COM components with CLR wrappers. Once wrapped, Python developers can access them just like other CLR objects.
 
This is an open source project and the code can be obtained from SourceForge.
