Using Ironpython with Unity game engine.

We already know that we can use python to use .net internal calls.
Now we may use the same to start a console that can accept a scripting language in Unity engine.
To do this we have to include certain dll files.
These dll files must be present in Assets>plugins
  • IronPython.dll
  • IronPython.Modules.dll
  • Microsoft.Scripting.Core.dll
  • Microsoft.Scripting.dll
  • Microsoft.Scripting.Debugging.dll
  • Microsoft.Scripting.ExtensionAttribute.dll
  • Microsoft.Dynamic.dll

Once the Plugins are in place.

Initiate the Cs code
PythonEngine engine = new PythonEngine(); engine.LoadAssembly(Assembly.GetAssembly(typeof(GameObject))); engine.ExecuteFile("");
Where is the python code.

Initiate python side:

import UnityEngine from UnityEngine
import *
Debug.Log("Hello world from IronPython!")
