Thanks for doing this, it's really awesome that you've taken initiative in this project!

There's a way to put VS in ASCII mode ... but I don't remember how. I felt that pain when getting the initial version of ironrubymvc set up.

I'm working on a silverline port to ASP.NET MVC, so I'll be ramping up my work on this as well.

I'm going to take this weekend to add some more error checking to IronRuby MVC and to create a readme with a quick sample.
But as things stand I think you should have a usable version of IronRuby MVC currently in my github repo (http://github.com/casualjim/ironrubymvc).

I would love to see some bugs being found :)

So if  you're interested to help, please get the source and try to build an ASP.NET<http://ASP.NET> MVC application with ironruby or help me out by writing specs.

There is something pretty annoying though. When you're in a C# project (like a library or an MVC project) and you create a text file. VS will help you out by adding a BOM to the file. Now IronRuby doesn't know how to handle files like that.
I realise you can do File - Save as - Save with encoding but that didn't have the desired effect either. So in the end i created my ruby files with Notepad++ and added those to the IronRuby mvc project.

This wasn't a problem earlier because I had created my own reader and script runner, and I just refactored to use StreamContentProviders from Microsoft.Scripting. As soon as I use the DLR infrastructure it starts complaining about the BOM's.
(Invalid character ï found).

I'd like to thank Jimmy for his advice.
