What is Cake?
Cake (C# Make) is a cross platform build automation system with a C# DSL to do things like compiling code, copy files/folders, running unit tests, compress files and build NuGet packages.
Cake is built on top of the Roslyn and Mono compiler which enables you to write your build scripts in C#.
Cake is available on Windows, Linux and OS X.
Regardless if you're building on your own machine, or building on a CI system such as AppVeyor, TeamCity, TFS, VSTS or Jenkins, Cake is built to behave in the same way.
Cake supports the most common tools used during builds such as MSBuild, MSTest, xUnit, NUnit, NuGet, ILMerge, WiX and SignTool out of the box.
We believe in open source and so should you. The source code for Cake is hosted on GitHub and includes everything needed to build it yourself.
