CS Make - Sake
Welcome to Sake, a C# language enabled make system.
Getting Sake from source and building
This also a way you can see Sake in action - it downloads itself from the Nuget gallery to build.
git clone https://github.com/loudej/sake.git && cd sake && build
Or to build on Mac or Linux
git clone https://github.com/loudej/sake.git && cd sake && ./build
Getting Sake on your machine
This is a convenient if you want to run
sake in any directory from a command line.
cinst sake -pre
First, you'll need to get chocolatey if you don't already have it. From a Package Manager Console
Install-Package chocolatey Initialize-Chocolatey Uninstall-Package chocolatey
Or there are other ways of getting chocolatey, see https://github.com/chocolatey/chocolatey/wiki/Installation
Getting Sake in your project's build
Via build.cmd bootstrapper
This is another nice technique if you want to use Sake in your project and don't to need people to install anything machine-wide. What you do is use Nuget.exe to download SAKE from the gallery in a pre-build step. This takes three files,
<packages> <package id="Sake" version="0.1.0-alpha" /> <!-- add other packages used as build tools, like nunit or xunit-runner --> </packages>
@echo off ".nuget\NuGet.exe" install -OutputDirectory packages .\packages.config "packages\Sake.0.1.0-alpha\tools\sake.exe" %*
