A small preview of a Visual Studio template/macro collection that I'm working on to provide better integration between Umbraco and Visual Studio.

That would be soooo cool if we could get this plugin!

I'm guessing this has gone stale since there have been no updates since this was posted. Shame too as this looked like it would be an excellent addon.

It's been a while... any news on the horizon on when this (plugin is it?) will be released?

Thanks.

Any news on this?
Would be great to have this integration!

Nice and simple yet you can do some of this already with MSBuild as it was pointed out by Andy.

I've got a few posts on this:

Also with the power of MSBuild community tasks etc you can do things like JS Compression and CSS Compression eg:

Keep up the great work and when this comes out I'll be all over this :)

Sorry about the sound (I should have noticed as I'm 80% deaf on my left ear!).

@Andy: Good idea with the web.config. Regarding push updates to VS it's not something I've thought of and not 'round the corner, but the next revision of Courier will offer source control integration with Umbraco (so you get context menus for update/commit) which will help.

Nice one!

Good stuff Niels.
We are currently using post build xcopy script in the project properties to move files from our VS project to the umbraco website which will always include all files along with the bin folder. The one extra that we've included is the web.config so that we can keep any changes made under source control.

Will there be any automated process for keeping additonal templates, xslt files etc. created using the admin interface in synch with the VS project or will this have to updated manually each time a file is created this way?

Hiya Niels,
This is a great video of Visual Studio Integration, but I am not sure if I am missing something obvious here, so do tell me if I am. Would it not be possible just to copy in the relevant folders into Visual Studio minus the /umbraco /umbraco_client folders etc..

What is the benefit of the files not being copied over directly to the umbraco site - am I having a blonde moment?!

Cheers,
Warren :)

Cool Stuff :-)


BTW: The sound level in left channel is much higher than the right one.
