Is there a way to create an entire solution with the various projects I use over and over in my applications with StudioShell?
I have a standard way I build my ASP.NET MVC applications with an n-Tier framework, Service Layer, Business Objects and Data objects, etc. I've exported each of the individual projects as Visual Studio templates, so it's making it easier for me to
start a new project. But it's still a bit time consuming.
What I'd like to do is this:
- Create a new named Visual Studio 2010 Empty Solution for my new application
- Run a PowerShell (or StudioShell) script that will create all the various projects I need for my solution
Keep in mind that all my exported project templates also contain all the assembly references that I need for those projects, which is a huge time saver, so I don't want to simply add a new empty project. I need to add my exported template projects!
Any suggestions on whether this is possible and how to get started is appreciated. I'm a PowerShell newbie, but I will learn it if I find out this type of thing is possible.
