StarterTree ReadMe


StarterTree is a simple Hello, World! application used as a starting place for creating new projects.

It has the following features:

  • Default project structure (src, lib, tools folders)
  • Simple rake script using albacore with tasks to create CommonAssemblyInfo.cs, build the Visual Studio 10 based solution, and run the NUnit test runner.
  • The sample application, StarterTree, configure StructureMap, our Inversion of Control container to provide a HelloWorld class as a Singleton. It contains a test fixture, HelloWorld, that exercises the StarterTree.Core class library.
  • Includes provenance.txt files in the lib and tools folders to show the source of the dependencies. See lib/Provenance.txt.template for an example.

How To Build:

The build script requires Ruby with rake installed.

  1. Run InstallGems.bat to get the ruby dependencies (only needs to be run once per computer)
  2. open a command prompt to the root folder and type rake to execute rakefile.rb

If you do not have ruby:

  1. You need to create a src\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs file. Go.bat will copy src\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs.default to src\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs
  2. open src\StarterTree.sln with Visual Studio and build the solution
