Cake AddIn that extends Cake with interactive user prompts.

Build status


/// <summary>
/// Prompts the user for input.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="context">The context.</param>
/// <param name="message">The message which is shown to the user.</param>
/// <param name="defaultResult">Value supplied if the user simply returns with no input</param>
/// <param name="timeout">Timeout time, defaults to 30 seconds</param>
/// <returns>The user input.</returns>
string Prompt(this ICakeContext context, string message, string defaultResult = default, TimeSpan timeout = default);


NuGetPush(packagePath, new NuGetPushSettings {
    ApiKey = Prompt("Enter api key for NuGetPush:")
var continue = Prompt("Do you want to continue? [Y/N]", "N").Trim().ToUpperInvariant() == "Y";
if (continue)

The Prompt() method throws a TimeoutException after the supplied timeout duration (Defaults to 30 seconds).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
