After lots and lots of hard work I’m very proud to announce that my team shipped v1.0 of the Clarius T4 Editor today.
We’ve been insanely struggling to get the bits finished during the last few months; you know, extending Visual Studio for simple stuff is far from trivial let alone extending it in some crazy ways like reusing the existing C# infrastructure. Nothing but lots of “fun”…
I’ve received lots of pings from people asking how the editor will be available, so this is the story:
We’re offering a Community edition, featuring basic T4 IntelliSense and syntax coloring, for free as in beer. And we’re offering a paid Professional edition too, including a few more extra features plus our King feature which is support for embedded C# code blocks. If you’re interested into finding how these two editions compare you can find a summary here.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I’m trying to save some typing by using this picture:
Now imagine how much your productivity will improve and what are you going to do with all the time you will save thanks to using the T4 Editor.
