The project has been migrated to GitHub from CodePlex: CS-Script.

CS-Script is a CLR (Common Language Runtime) based scripting system which uses ECMA-compliant C# as a programming language.

CS-Script is one of the most mature C# scripting solutions. It became publicly available in 2004, two years after the first release of .NET. CS-Script supports both hosted and standalone execution model. It allows seamlessly switching underlying compiling technology without affecting the code base. Currently supported compilers are Mono, Roslyn and CodeDOM. It offers comprehensive integration with most common development tools: Visual Studio, VSCode, Sublime Text 3, Notepad++. It can be run on Win, Linux and Mac. And it is compatible with .NET, Mono and .NET Core (ongoing development).

Over the long history of CS-Script it has been downloaded through Notepad++ plugin manager alone over times.

For the all CS-Script details go to the project Documentation Wiki.


The following is a simple code sample just to give you the idea about the product:

Executing script from shell

Updating media file tags. Note, the script is using optional classless layout.

Script file: mp4_retag.cs

//css_nuget taglib
using System;
using System.IO;

string source = @"\\media-server\tv_shows\Get Smart\Season1";

void main()
{
    foreach (string file in Directory.GetFiles(source, "*.mp4"))
    {
        string episode_name = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(file);

        var mp4 = TagLib.File.Create(file);
        mp4.Tag.Title = episode_name;
        mp4.Save();

        Console.WriteLine(episode_name);
    }
}

Execute script file directly in cmd-promt without building an executable assembly:

C:\Temp>cscs mp4_retag.cs
