TeamCity.CodeBetter Project List

The question was asked: Dammit, why can’t you do anything right?

But that’s not a question worth answering at the moment, instead I’ll focus on a different question that was asked: Some of the projects on the TeamCity/CodeBetter offspring (or, to be more inline with its parents’ love of Pascal casing, OffSpring) sound interesting, but not all of them pop up on Google. Is there a list of all the projects with descriptions?

The TeamCity administrators hummed and hawed a bit before deciding on our answer: no. So I set about creating one. Forthwith:

All of you project administrators out there, I would recommend you update your descriptions accordingly. This won’t be the definitive list for very long so if someone is browsing through the list, it would be nice to see something descriptive in there.

And JetBrains, if you’re listening, a URL field for the project would be dandy like the wine bearing its name.
