FAKE (F# Make)

FAKE is a build tool similar to Make that allows you to automate a sequence of steps that you wish to have done during each build. The permutations of things you might include in the automated build script for a solution are endless, but at a minimum you will likely want to compile all projects and run unit tests.

FAKE is built in F# and the scripts you use to create the automated build process are also created in F#. I’ve used FAKE in projects such as FsUnit and found it to be very helpful! It’s also a great way to get F# “in the door” for any groups or organizations that may be hesitant about bringing in F#. You can find several examples for getting started with FAKE here.

Note

FAKE leverages MSBuild, so in addition to the power of F# and the various custom plug-ins that FAKE provides, you can take advantage of everything that MSBuild has to offer.
