LLILC project : MSIL code generators targeting the open source dotnet CoreCLR

While the CoreCLR already has a JIT, we saw an opportunity to provide a new code generator that has the potential to run across all the targets and platforms supported by LLVM. To enable this, as part of our project we're modifying an MSIL reader that operates directly against the same common JIT interface as the production JIT (RyuJIT). This new JIT will allow any C# program written for the .NET Core class libraries to run on any platform that CoreCLR can be ported to and that LLVM will target.

This new project is being developed on GitHub and you can check it out at Please check out our wiki for more info.  (
