ExpandoObject / Dynamics

Aug 18, 2012 at 5:11 PM

Any planned support for dynamics or ExpandoObject in the future?

Was evaluating this as an alternative to Newtonsoft,  and ran into a gotcha' when it comes to dynamics,  I was considering patching in support (if I can find a bit of time) but wanted to check if there is something already in the works.

It certainly is intriguing, I have explored the possibility but not in great detail.

Frankly it's hard to define what would be expected.

Okay,   good to know.  

After a quick scan thru the code it looks like serializing a dynamic would fit into the current pattern fairly easily, for the most part it is treated like a dictionary<string,object>.  the difficulty comes in deserializing. 

I'll poke around with it and see where I get.
