scriptcs - C# in console
It was always bothering me, when I wanted to run one simple command, and I needed to create new C# console project in Visual Studio to do that. With scriptcs I can finally do that in console. Project scriptcs allows you to run single commands and also C# script files.
The easiest way to install scriptcs is Chocolatey ('apt-get' for windows). If you didn't hear about it, you should definitely try it out. To install Chocolatey run the following command in console:
Once you have Chocolatey installed, you can install scriptcs:
Chocolatey will install scriptcs to %APPDATA%\scriptcs\. You need to update your PATH accordingly, to easily run it from command line.
Once scriptcs is installed and added to your PATH, you can run it with scriptcs command:
You can also create a script hello.csx:
And run it from command line:
You can find more about scriptcs on scriptcs.net.
EDIT: You don't even need
Console.WriteLine to print variables (thanks Filip W.):
