XML transforms, SlowCheetah

I had been working with web applications with the web.config transform. Which is a great feature for the builds automation and deployments.

But it is lack of the support for other config files, such as app.config for windows service projects or console applications. Or maybe an xml configuration file in your project.

After I read the Hanslmen’s blog, I found this little plugin in for Visual Studio called “SlowCheetah”. It enables you to create transforms for any configuration files. How great is that!

Download the plugin and restart your VS.

You will see the “Add Transform” option once you right click the configuration file.

Enjoy the little time saver plugin.
