is it planned to make public the API you are using to develop grasshopper components? This would open to the user community the option to develop custom ArchiCAD/GH components and hopefully speed-up the components ecosystem creation...
I presume the existence of a wrapped C++ library to C# or some .Net compatible language to make possible the communication between Grasshopper and ArchiCAD, but probably IŽam being quite naif here (IŽam noob in programming)...
Anyway, and open API in .net for ArchiCAD (al least if this is technically possible) would be fantastic.

I am no programmer either, but I think grasshopper programming interface is open allready. Please check links.

how do you marry C# and C++/ i a development environment?
Wouldn't .NET cripple Mac/Windows compatibility? Aren't DLLs the reason that many GH plug-ins don't work on the Mac version? _________________ Think Like a Spec Writer

mmhh cant say too much about the details, but grasshopper is in fact developed in .NET, and still runs in Macs based ion Mono project. .NET is definitively cross platform, at least that said the advertisement ; )
