msbuild plugin for gulp. Inspired by grunt-msbuild

Not maintained anymore

This project is not maintained anymore. The main reason is that i no longer work with .NET and MSBuild, which makes it hard to still work on this project in my spare time.

Also note that this plugin is not following the Gulp Guidelines as this is not intended to be used with gulp, which is also the reason why this plugin was blacklisted in the official gulp plugin directory.

If you would like to develop it further feel free to fork this project, i can link your fork here as well if you like.

Usage

First, install gulp-msbuild as a development dependency:

npm install --save-dev gulp-msbuild

Then, add it to your gulpfile.js:

var gulp = require("gulp");
var msbuild = require("gulp-msbuild");

gulp.task("default", function() {
	return gulp.src("./project.sln")
		.pipe(msbuild());
});

Options

If you miss any options, feel free to open an issue.

Example

var gulp = require("gulp");
var msbuild = require("gulp-msbuild");

gulp.task("default", function() {
	return gulp.src("./project.sln")
		.pipe(msbuild({
			targets: ['Clean', 'Build'],
			toolsVersion: 3.5
			})
		);
});

stdout

Show output of msbuild

Default: false

stderr

Show errors of msbuild

Default: true

errorOnFail

If the MSBuild job fails with an error, this will cause the gulp-msbuild stream to return an error thus causing the gulp task to fail. This is useful if using an automated build server such as Jenkins where a failing MSBuild should also cause the overall build job to fail.

Default: false

Logs the msbuild command that will be executed.

Default: false

['Rebuild']
