Microsoft Has Open Sourced MSBuild

Date 2015/3/19 1:59:51 | Topic: Product News

Microsoft has released to the GitHub platform the code of the Microsoft Build Engine (MSBuild), the build platform for .NET and Visual Studio.

The Microsoft Build Engine is a platform for building applications. This engine, which is also known as MSBuild, provides an XML schema for a project file that controls how the build platform processes and builds software. Visual Studio uses MSBuild, but it doesn't depend on Visual Studio. By invoking msbuild.exe on your project or solution file, you can orchestrate and build products in environments where Visual Studio isn't installed.
