MSBuild.Scaffolding

Powershell package that adds basic MSBuild script and required infrastructure to your solution.

  • Updates SharedAssemblyInfo.cs by the prober build and revision number during each build (by using MSBuildCommunity tasks)
  • Enable-Versioning cmdlet allows to easily configure solution projects to use SharedAssemblyInfo.cs.

Enable-Versioning explained

  • In Visual Studio please open Package Manager Console
  • Type Enable-Versioning and hit Enter - all the projects in the solution will be configured to use version from the SharedAssemblyInfo.cs
  • Type Enable-Versioning {PROJECT_NAME} and hit Enter - only specified project will be configured to use version from the SharedAssemblyInfo.cs

Notes

Please note that this package is the solution level package. It will be added to the solution itself. It won't be downloaded by the NuGet Package Restore feature. Hence all the needed files are being added into Build folder. In order to use Enable-Versioning cmdlet package should be installed.
