Compile from File
« on: April 14, 2009, 02:42:58 PM »
It would be nice to generate a file of apps/projects that should be compiled, and have the Build Automator just compile those files.

For example:
A Build has 100 apps but only two apps changed, have the Build Automator read a file that contains the names of those two files and just compile those.

Hi Bill,

It would be nice to generate a file of apps/projects that should be compiled, and have the Build Automator just compile those files.

For example:
A Build has 100 apps but only two apps changed, have the Build Automator read a file that contains the names of those two files and just compile those.

That is an excellent idea!  One other option would be to add checkmarks to the "Compile multiple application" window where you could quickly uncheck all, check all, check selected etc.  An external file is also pretty cool because that would allow automating it from outside of the build automator if needed!

I have a new build in alpha right now and was hoping to get it out in beta this last Monday but getting my Clarion products ready for C7 has had to take priority right now.
