The 'import clr' is specific to IronPython, which is a version of Python that runs on mono/.net. I don't recall if IronPython runs on Linux. I want to say it does but I don't want to get your hopes up if I am wrong but with that, you can access c# classes directly. Unfortunately, I don't think django will run well on IronPython. There was some attempts to get it going sometime ago but I don't think it went anywhere.

The only other thought I gave is to create an executable mono project that could talk to the class which could output the results in something that could be interpreted by Python. Like in a Json format or something like that.

Is it not possible to achieve the same (or similar) functionality that is contained in the c# class in question with a python class?

Hope this helps,
