FsInteractiveService

The FsInteractiveService project provides a simple layer over the F# Interactive services from the F# Compiler Services project. It makes the service available as a stand-alone process that can be started and called via HTTP requests. It is very similar to the FsAutoComplete project, which provides similar out-of-process wrapper for F# Compiler IDE services.

The FsInteractiveService project can be used to build F# Interactive editor integration for editors that are not based on .NET such as Atom.
