Maybe you’re interested in this Rake business. Maybe you’ve got a big investment in a whole build infrastructure in NAnt. Maybe, just maybe, it’s impractical to convert the whole enchilada over at once. What do you do?
Wrap it in Rakey goodness, of course!
Step one: leave your nant build in place. Write a little ruby function to fake call into Nant from Rake.
Step two: create your rakefile.rb (or rakefile).
Step three: incrementally replace NAnt tasks with Rake equivalents. Start simple…
Step four: evolve as necessary and on your own timeline!
