ClangSharp are strongly-typed safe Clang bindings written in C# for .NET and Mono, tested on Linux and Windows. ClangSharp is self-hosted and ClangSharp auto-generates itself parsing LLVM-C header files.

If you're on Windows, consider using the ClangSharp 3.6 NuGet Package - built from Clang 3.6 Release.

Building ClangSharp

On Linux using Mono:

 $ git clone
 $ cd ClangSharp
 $ chmod +x
 $ ./ /path/to/ /path/clang/include

On Windows using Microsoft.NET:

Note: - you need to run from the Visual Studio Command Prompt of the architecture you want to target.

 :> git clone
 :> cd ClangSharp
 :> build.bat c:\path\libclang.dll C:\path\to\llvm\include


  • Auto-generated using Clang C headers files, and supports all functionality exposed by them ~ which means you can build tooling around C/C++
  • Type safe (CXIndex and CXTranslationUnit are different types, despite being pointers internally)
  • Nearly identical to Clang C APIs, e.g. clang_getDiagnosticSpelling in C, vs. clang.getDiagnosticSpelling (notice the . in the C# API)

ClangSharp PInvoke Generator

A great example of ClangSharp's use case is its self-hosting mechanism Clang Sharp PInvoke Generator
