Nettuts+ Builder: Free to Premium Members

by

As we prepare Version 2 of our Nettuts+ Builder app, I've decided to make the initial release available free to all of our loyal Premium members.

Nettuts+ Builder

Free to Premium members, or $5 on CodeCanyon.

Nettuts+ Builder turns the process of compressing scripts and stylesheets, and uploading a project to your server into as simple a process as possible.


How's It Work?

Click the "Video Preview" button here to get a better understanding of how the App works.

Let's say that you finished a coding project or demo. Simply drag the folder onto the Builder menu icon, and it will:

  • Create a new "Publish" directory
  • Compress all JavaScript files
  • Compress all Stylesheets
  • Optionally upload them, via FTP, to a designated folder on your server.

If you've found yourself manually compressing your files and uploading them to your server, this automates the entire process!


What's Coming Next?

This app is being actively developed. Coming soon:

  • HTML compression.
  • Automatic concatenation of all scripts and stylesheets.
  • Automatic updating of HTML files with references to the newly concatenated assets.
  • Single file uploads
  • After uploading, a link to the url will be added to the clipboard.
  • Glossless image compression

    Integrating a JS Build Process Into MSBuild in Visual Studio 2012 ExpressMsbuild retina preview
    I've been working with ASP and ASP.NET for about ten years now, starting with ASP classic and settling on .NET 2.0 as my favorite. My new year resolution this year (2013) was to upgrade my .NET work to .NET 4.0 using Visual Studio 2012 Express and really get to grips with MSBuild, so that I can concatenate and minify my JavaScript files as part of the normal build process of a .NET project, in Visual Studio. My first love is to use Ant in NetBeans with a PHP or JSP platform for this kind of work, but my company's main website runs on a .NET platform and it's time to update it, so I decided to bite the bullet and dive back in to some serious study of creating a fully integrated build process using MSBuild. This tutorial will show you how to edit your Visual Studio 2012 Express project file to include your own separate build file which will perform the now widely familiar process of concatenating and minifying a set of JavaScript modules into one file ready for deployment.
