Two summers ago, the amazing Alan McGovern created LunarEclipse a
Silverlight designer and last summer Manuel Cerón continued the work
The designer at the time was mostly focused on the Silverlight 1.1
subset since we developed this on Linux and we did not have 2.0
available at the time.
The code has not been updated for a while, so chances are, some bits
needs to be updated to work again.
The vision in general was that LunarEclipse should provide an engine
that could be used within a WebBrowser, so that the actual design
happened in the browser. This means that we could get contributions
from Mac (and on day even Windows developers), not only Linux
It would be a fun summer project for a motivated hacker.
