F# support

Scripting

-

-

F# is rapidly gaining popularity in the .NET community. There are several game developers who are using it outside Unity, and even Xamarin products now support it.

It would be nice to be able to use F# for scripting in Unity.

    Released the next version of my F# kit Asset today: https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/63652

    It's still not like native support, but getting close one step after another.

    I am exploring the possibility of using F# for our game development team. Missing official support isn't a deal breaker but it would certainly sweeten the deal if it were there and it would help us sell it to management that much easier. F# is an amazing multi-paradigm language allowing us to both use imperative and functional constructs when each fits best. Although Unity itself is object oriented and imperative, I could easily foresee libraries emerging that can make the Unity APIs more easily consumable. Please Unity, provide native support. It will elevate the production quality of the games we make!

    F# got me exited about programming again. I'd make room because it's probably here to stay.

    Please add F# and ignore Microsoft UWP stuff. No body uses UWP.

    I would love to see official support for F# in Unity3d.

    Please note that because F# is not a supported scripting language in Unity, there are showstopper bugs that will not be fixed by Unity that effectively will prevent F# from being used as a scripting language for Unity in the near future.

    See <http://seriouscodeblog.blogspot.ca/2017/04/no-virginia-you-cant-actually-write.html> for more details.

    It would be fantastic if we could program Unity script in F#. It's an awesome programming language and this would be an excellent feature that Unity could have.
