Create a plug-in (or contribute to an existing one [MSBuild?]) that exposes meta information about a .NET solution

Mar 31, 2013 in dotnet, jenkins, ideas | blog

This idea happened after Andrew Gray’s objectified-solutions. With Objectified Solutions one can extract meta information from a .NET solution. This information includes:

  • Global properties of the solution
  • List of projects in solution
  • Global properties of each project
  • List of source files in each project
  • List of System references that each project depends on
  • List of Project references that each project depends on
  • Basic properties of each source file

The code is hosted at GitHub too. Maybe someone could even think about a “.NET solution project” job type for Jenkins.
