SlowCheetah support for Azure Worker Roles

I have had a number of request to get SlowCheetah working for Azure Worker Roles. I think I have it working now. I have not yet released the support to the download page yet but after the support is verified I will update the release.

If you would like to try out a build which has support to transform app.config, as well as other XML files, for Azure Worker Roles you can find the VSIX at https://dl.dropbox.com/u/40134810/SlowCheetah/issue-44/SlowCheetah-issue-44.zip. After installing for worker role projects you can create XML transforms for app.config, and any other XML file. When you publish to azure, or create a package your files should be transformed.

More info on this on the following issues.

BTW if you are interested in my upcoming MSBuild book checkout msbuildbook.com

Cool blog post showing publish profiles

My good friend Brady Gaster, has written up a great blog post at Managing Multiple Windows Azure Web Site Environments using Visual Studio Publishing Profiles. In that post he shows how you can create publish profiles and have profile specific web.config transforms as well as a bunch of other info. Its a great read, the content applies to any host which supports Web Deploy not just Azure Web Sites.

Thanks,
