Build Time Code Generation in MSBuild
Build-time code generation is a really powerful way to automate repetitive parts of your code. It can save time, reduce frustration, and eliminate a source of copy/paste bugs. This is something I’m familiar with due to my past work on MonoDevelop’s tooling for ASP.NET, T4 and Moonlight, and designing and/or implementing similar systems for Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android. However, I haven’t seen any good documentation on it, so I decided to write an article to outline the basics.
