Import Settings toy for VStudio
As you can tell by the sheer size of the c# formatting options area in vstudio 2005, different companies and people love their own personal code formatting style. However, that can present a pretty serious problem to those of use who bounce around various clients, because they almost invariably all have their own style documented in some holy document.
For a while, i would just go through the settings dialogs to change to the current project i was working on. That got tedious very quickly. Then I started exporting/importing vssettings files through the wizard. But even that 10 click game gets old. So one night, after dealing with 3 different projects or 3 different clients, I got sufficiently annoyed and decided to get lazy
about the whole thing.
So now I have a vstudio 2005 macro that makes it easy to add a simple macro command to my Tools menu for this. Open a project, click a menu item. yay for easiness. The only thing easier would be if it were automatic, which is something i'm working on in the background.
After building that, I just had another idea about importing settings that, while I'm not going to use myself right now, I thought would be an interesting little side project. So I also created a macro project for automaticly importing from a vssettings file over the web. Uploading the file is up to you for now, but vstudio will, upon open, download and import those settings. The idea here is to make it a bit easier to keep 2 locations ( home and work? ) in sync as far as options go.
So if these toys interest you, download and give them a try
