because I was bored and I am sick and tired of setting up stupid VB.Net projects

I am trying to setup some standards, but standards documents only gather dust so now I have a dirt simple way for people to setup new projects that will follow our standards and will also save a chunk of time since we won’t have to clean up all the shiat that VS puts into a VB.Net project.

set the config file to your source location

<add key="source_control" value="[your scm url]" />

Command Line

once warmup is on your path

warmup [template name] [name to replace with]


warmup web FHLBank.AwesomeWebSite

This will go to your SVN (and soon GIT) repo and do an export/clone of that directory then replace the ‘__NAME__’ with your supplied name

So now you can build a templated solution with projects and third party libs just name the stuff to be replace with ‘__NAME__’

I still need to work on some GUID updates. I am sure I will run into other little issues, this is about 60 minutes worth of work so don’t be too harsh.

    Have you looked into TreeSurgeon on CodePlex? I’ve used it in the past to setup a shell structure with MbUnit tests and all.

    Probably deserves an UppercuT version!
