Morning all. i have a bit of an oddball question. Is there anyawy of running a python function from within Orchard? I see there’s DLR scripting support but is that robust enough?

in theory you can replace the scripting engine with another one, but you might not want to go to that extent, so you could at least provide a python Workflow Activity. What is you scenario to use python ?

we’re using a tool for our CS group called fTrack which has a python API for accessing features. Request came in to create a request form for end users that has a bunch of options in it which would then create a project + tasks.
the api supports that, and would like to build it on our orchard platform if at all possible.
so my thought was to have a form generate the py file and then somehow run that
its a one and done scenario
maybe adding in something like ironpython would work?
