F# Compiler Service
The FSharp.Compiler.Service package contains a custom build of the F# compiler that exposes additional functionality for implementing F# language bindings, additional tools based on the compiler or refactoring tools. The package also includes F# interactive service that can be used for embedding F# scripting into your applications. This repository exists entirely to create and publish that package.
This repo is (mostly) read only
This repo exists as a downstream packaging repository for the FSharp.Compiler.Service NuGet Package. It serves the following purposes only:
- Release packaging
- Hosting public documentation
- Serving as a stable base for Fable
It is a fork of the official F# source repository, which is located at microsoft/visualfsharp. All issues and contributions should be raised there. All feature development should be targeted there. Once contributions are accepted into microsoft/visualfsharp, they will be integrated into this repository for packaging and release.
If you need to add customizations to FSharp.Compiler.Service for your own uses, you should clone microsoft/visualfsharp and build the FSharp.Compiler.Service binaries from there. The process is exactly the same as it is described below.
No contribution is too small
Even if you find a single-character typo, we're happy to take the change! Although the codebase can feel daunting for beginners, we and other contributors are happy to help you along.
