Automating VS


#1

Hi

A while ago I remeber seeing a screencast where John L. shows how to
use
ironruby to automate visual studio.
I can’t find the screencast anymore but I would be interested to know
which
API was used. Was that just using EnvDTE ?

I’m asking because at work we are using GAT to automate visual studio
and to
create a kind of software factory (without the visual designers)
When it comes to developing with GAT I think most of us will agree that
there are more pleasant ways to develop and debug your work.

So I may get the chance to get them to use IronRuby for some of that
stuff
as long as we can hide from the use case/LOB developers.
Using GAT for us is a hazard to make our sprints. Most of our story
points
for example go into GAT development and debugging, granted that we do
make
it do some crazy stuff too.

Thanks
