The Cake cross-platform build automation system has officially joined the .NET Foundation. Maintainer Gary Ewan Park says the same developers will continue working on the open source project, but they will benefit from the support of the .NET Foundation.
“We firmly believe that creating a reliable and maintainable build automation script is best done in the same language as the application that you are building,” blogged the .NET Foundation. “On top of the fact that Cake allows you to create build scripts using a common language, out of the box, it has support for almost 30 of the most common build tools.”
Cake is based on Roslyn and Mono, and it runs on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
