Just a quick post to point folks to a very cool CodePlex Add-In that you may not know about. It’s called Chirpy and can be downloaded from http://chirpy.codeplex.com/. The reason I discovered it is that it includes functionality to automatically run T4MVC. In fact, it is basically the new version of the Add-In by Wayne Brantley that I blogged about a few months back. Wayne has been working on this with Evan Nagle, who is the main owner.
But note that Chirpy does a lot more than just run T4MVC automatically! Check out Evan’s post for a complete tutorial. To give a really quick intro, Chirpy makes it really easy to automatically:
But I’m really just paraphrasing Evan’s post, so just check out the details there. I just played around with most of the functionality, and it all seems to work flawlessly.
It works for both VS 2008 and VS 2010. Give it a try and see how you like it!
