Hi, what is the current status of reflection support? We heavily rely on this platform feature.

I suppose the internals of reflection is a huge amount of work, isn't it? I mean the C++ code that really emulate the reflection inside the runtime.

I don't know any open source transpiler or project which generate cpp from il that fully support reflection, except from il2cpp (Unity).

Even corert avoids the cpp generation on its Reflection sample (https://github.com/dotnet/corert/tree/master/tests/src/Simple/Reflection) The empty no_cpp file discart it.
Do you know any project that really do or any workaround to be able to use you project to compile something that rely heavily on Reflection?
