Status

Alpha. This project is useful in certain constrained applications, e.g. the NuGet Console in Xamarin Studio.

Getting Started

Assuming you have MonoDevelop installed:

  1. git clone ...
  2. cd Pash
  3. xbuild
  4. mono Source/PashConsole/bin/Debug/Pash.exe

See CONTRIBUTING.md for more details, especially if you see funny characters on startup.

License

The original release of Pash in 2008 didn't include a LICENSE or COPYING file, or other indication of license. However, at https://sourceforge.net/projects/pash/ it says:

License

BSD License, GNU General Public License (GPL)

I have emailed Igor Moochnick a few times to clarify his licensing intent, but he hasn't responded. So I'm treating that note on sourceforge as authoritative.

History

Pash was created by Igor Moochnick and published at http://pash.sourceforge.net/ in 2008. After the original release, development ceased.

In 2012, Jay Bazuzi moved the project to GitHub and got things going again. A bunch of generous contributors have since joined in, keeping the project moving forward a bit at a time.
