What is NuPattern?
NuPattern is the platform and tools that make it easy to create your own custom branded tooling in Visual Studio.
Spend six minutes watching the following video to understand what NuPattern is and how it can benefit you:
By now, you are probably used to seeing different vendors' tools and extensions in Visual Studio, some you like, and some offer little value to your project except perhaps in the initial phases. There is a reason these tools are very general purpose. But, have you ever considered using and building your own specific tools, or tools from others developers you follow, ones that create software the way you know you want it created for use of your specific projects? Such as how your organization or community builds their applications using agreed coding standards, project structures and architectural practices. No vendor can possibly build you those kinds of tools. NuPattern is the new framework and the tools that enable you to create your own tooling and automation that does exactly that for you and your projects.
Ever tried to create custom tools and templates in Visual Studio? It is impossibly hard, and few in the world can do can afford to do it. But no longer with NuPattern. Simply define a model of how you understand the features of your software, decorate that model with templates, automation and instructive guidance. Then NuPattern will automatically generate a new Visual Studio extension that you can post on a gallery and share with others, and you and your communities get the tools you always wanted.
