Native support for C#/dotnet

Idea ID 2862070

Native support for C#/dotnet

The goal would be to natively support running C# just like cloudslang with Python.  As well as being able to reference user provided dlls, along with raw C# code that uses "using" statements.

 

This feature would allow for:

- Faster completion for integrations and vendors that already provide C# toolkits

- Allow customers to easily integrate their existing C# libraries and code base

- Leverage dotnet native windows integrations while running from windows ras servers

- This is highly debated, but C#'s JIT compilation would allow for larger code bases to run faster

- Offers an option to us users to use a strongly/statically typed language

- With additions like Mono, the drawbacks of using C# for portability are not as much of a concern

- Offers an option to python operations for large Windows companies

- Ideally support any dotnet version, but the goal would be dotnet 5 (successor to dotnet core 3.x) if it needs to be tied to a specific distro.

Cloudslang support for .NET would help customers that have majority of windows servers and use .NET a lot in their day to day operations.
