Fed up with XML based builds that are hard to maintain, refactor and extend? Rather than trying to fix this with more xml and community tasks, or re-invent the wheel, lets use rake. Rake is a mature build system developed by the ruby community which can be applied equally well in the .NET world.
nRake provides a template C# .NET project with a standardised directory tree, a Rake build, templated app and web configs for different environments and Continuous Integration server sample config files.
How to use
- Choose your version:
- Git clone or Download nRake as a Zip
- Rename PlaceHolder app and tests to reflect your project
- Run rake.bat in the root of the project, to make sure everything still builds
- Start developing :-)
