The new csproj format provides many advantages over the old csproj format.
- Human readable
- Better source control behavior (less code, nothing generated)
- Convention based
But there are no XAF-Templates yet. So I decided to create my own ones.
You can find them on nuget or just install them via cli:
dotnet new -i Scissors.XafTemplates
Afterwards you should see the following templates.
expressApp Framework Empty Module xaf-module [C#] Common/Console expressApp Framework Empty WindowsForms Module xaf-win-module [C#] Common/Console expressApp Framework Winforms Application xaf-win [C#] Common/Console
To create an empty application (for now this will initialize with XPO, but that may change in the future)
dotnet new xaf-win -o src -n Acme.DemoCenter
There are serval options you can use. Use the
--help switch for more information:
dotnet new xaf-win --help
Nutzung: new [Optionen] Optionen: -h, --help Displays help for this command. -l, --list Lists templates containing the specified name. If no name is specified, lists all templates. -n, --name The name for the output being created. If no name is specified, the name of the current directory is used. -o, --output Location to place the generated output. -i, --install Installs a source or a template pack. -u, --uninstall Uninstalls a source or a template pack. --nuget-source Specifies a NuGet source to use during install. --type Filters templates based on available types. Predefined values are "project", "item" or "other". --dry-run Displays a summary of what would happen if the given command line were run if it would result in a template creation. --force Forces content to be generated even if it would change existing files. -lang, --language Filters templates based on language and specifies the language of the template to create. expressApp Framework Winforms Application (C#) Author: Manuel Grundner Options: --no-restore If specified, skips the automatic restore of the project on create. bool - Optional Default: false / (*) true -tf|--target-framework text - Optional Default: net462 -dx|--dx-version text - Optional Default: 19.1.2 -U|--UseEasyTest bool - Optional Default: false / (*) true * Indicates the value used if the switch is provided without a value.
The templates are rather basic for now, but I think it provides a lot of value, esp. if you don't want to leave the command line.
As always, you can find the sources on github and let me know what you think!
