Runtime C# Scripting in Unity UI - The Roslyn Compiler in Unity

 ·   ·  ☕ 1 min read

Lets integrate the .NET Roslyn compiler into a Unity game so we can run basic scripts at runtime. This will allow us to write new C# code into a Unity UI object like a Text Box and then execute it. The goal here is exposing our script processor to something we can interact with outside of the Unity Editor.

We’ll be exploring this inside of a compiled Unity game running on Windows (compatibility of this solution on other platforms may not be as easy).

This project uses the Roslyn Scripting API (Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.CSharp.Scripting). There are more examples of that here:
