FAKE - F# Make
"FAKE - F# Make" is a cross platform build automation system. Due to its integration in F#, all benefits of the .NET Framework and functional programming can be used, including the extensive class library, powerful debuggers and integrated development environments like Visual Studio or MonoDevelop, which provide syntax highlighting and code completion.
The new DSL was designed to be succinct, typed, declarative, extensible and easy to use.
Build the project
- Quick: Download and install the Dotnet SDK and run
dotnet build build.proj
- Fake5: Install FAKE 5 (for example via
choco install fake -pre) and run
Note: The build of the "legacy" parts (FAKE 4) will most likely fail
- when you are on linux and do not have mono installed
- when you are on windows and do not have Visual Studio installed
Either build only the
fake build target FullDotNetCoreor install the requirements according to the contributing page
Make sure to have long path enabled: https://superuser.com/questions/1119883/windows-10-enable-ntfs-long-paths-policy-option-missing Otherwise the test-suite will fail (However, the compilation should work)
