MSBuild Selector

Build your Visual Studio solutions using MSBuild.

Build Status

What it provides

MSBuild Selector is a build system for MSBuild users allowing them to:

  • Build the whole solution
  • Build one of the project that contain the file currently edited
  • Build the file currently edited

Each build option is available in all the Platform/Configuration pairs.

Usage example

Startup configuration

To activate it, select the MSBuildSelector build system, you need a Sublime project that you will configure to have:

"msbuild_selector":
{
	# A mandatory list of glob patterns to find the sub-projects (named simply projects
	# in VS)
	"patterns":	[
		"path/to/projects/*.vcxproj"
	],
}

Note that patterns is mandatory and should contains only path relatives to the project root.

After that your just have to press the build shortcut (CTRL-B or F7).

Additional configuration

Here a more complete example of configuration:

"msbuild_selector":
{
	# Path to MSBUILD
	"command": "path/to/msbuild.exe",

	# An optional list of "root projects" a.k.a solutions in the VS world that
	# will be added to the panel to build
	"projects": [
		{
			"name": "Project name",
			"file_name": "Project.build.proj",
			"directory": "Path/to/project/"
		}
	],

	# List of platforms you want to be able to build on.
	# Default is Win32/x64
	"platforms":
	[
		"x64"
	],

	# List of configuration you want to be able to build on.
	# Default is Release/Debug
	"configurations":
	[
		"Release"
	],

	# A mandatory list of glob patterns to find the sub-projects
	# (named simply projects in VS)
	"patterns":	[
		"path/to/projects/*.vcxproj",
		"path/to/projects/*.csxproj",
	],

	# Optional environment variables that will be passed to MSBuild process
	"environment": {
		"MY_VAR": "my_value"
	},

	# Regexp to match error (see build system documentation)
	# Default is "^\\s*(.+)\\(([0-9]+)\\)\\s*:\\s*(.*)"
	"file_regex": "^\\s*(.+)\\(([0-9]+)\\)\\s*:\\s*(.*)"
}

Additional commands

It also provides two commands:

  • "msbuild_selector_project": allows to launch the build on a project or a solution find with the patterns. It will open the quick panel to allow selection of what has to be build.
  • "msbuild_selector_file": try to find the projects where the file exists and open a quick panel to allow selection of what to build. It is the command used by the build system.
