Automated Build Starter Kit
Keeping with the automated build topic like the last two posts, you can download an “Automated Build Starter Kit” here (click image below)
The goal of this starter kit is to enable to quickly setup an automated build for any of your .NET projects using NAnt. To get started with the kit, all you need to do is unzip the contents of the zip file and rename the folder to something like the name of the project. And that’s it you are done. You can build the sample project in the zip file by opening up the command prompt at that directory location and execute the command “go build”. The zip file also contains a sample web application and a sample web site in it. To publish the sample web application to the IIS on the current machine execute “go publishWebApp” and to publish the sample website to the IIS on the current machine execute “go publishWebSite”. To publish both the sample web application and web site, execute “go publish”. The build script automatically registers the published locations as virtual directories with IIS also. Please the ReadMe.txt file in the zip contents for more information.
