  • ComLightInterop

    Cross-platform COM interop library for .NET Core 2.1 or newer

  • I have once made something remotely similar, to interop between C++ and C#: https://github.com/Const-me/ComLightInterop

    I took different approach. Because I only needed to support these two languages, there’s no separate interface definition language, and no code generator for interfaces. Instead, users are expected to write both language projections manually.

    Then there’s a runtime code generator on the .NET side of the interop which builds runtime callable proxy types for interfaces implemented in C++, also virtual tables for C# objects consumed by C++.

  • dear_bindings

    C header (and language binding metadata) generator for Dear ImGui

  • > create a proper C binding to the C++ interface

    That's the generally recommended way of exposing your C++ library to any kind of non-C++ code.

    I'm not aware of any software which directly helps with that, unfortunately. You either do it manually or write a bunch of custom scripts. Here's a recent example of the latter, from Dear ImGui:
