  • Run any build target defined in Your project's FAKE build script


ionide-fake allows the user to override the default conventions used to find and run FAKE builds. To do so You need to create an .ionide file in the root folder of Your project opened by Atom. The configuration file uses the TOML language.

Here is the default configuration values used if the .ionide file doesn't exist or some entry is missing:

linuxPrefix = "mono"
command = "build.cmd"
build = "build.fsx"
  • Linux Prefix - command used as prefix on Linux / Mac - usually sh or mono

  • Command - command executed as build taking build name as parameter - usually build.cmd, build.sh, build.ps1

  • Build - FAKE build script, which is parsed to obtain list of possible builds - usually build.fsx, fake.fsx

Command Key Bindings

When creating Command Palette key bindings for FAKE the command names are:

  • fake.fakeBuild
  • fake.buildDefault (default binding is ctrl+f5)
  • fake.cancelBuild

For example, to launch the target list using shift+f5 add the following to the VS Code keybindings.json file:

    { "key": "shift+f5", "command": "fake.fakeBuild" }

PATH settings

  • In case of using Mono version, mono must be in PATH.
