Ironclad’s purpose is to allow IronPython to transparently import and use compiled CPython extensions.
The original project https://code.google.com/p/ironclad is no longer active. The last known version works with Python 2.6. The idea here is to make it work with current version (2.7.x) of CPython and IronPython.
At the moment it does compile using up to date components and passes almost all internal tests.
Ran 479 tests in 135.893s FAILED (failures=2) scons: done building targets.
numpy is still failing on import.
Up to date building instructions can be found at: https://github.com/IronLanguages/ironclad/wiki/building
Anybody who would like to help is welcome!
