XSExtra - addin with a couple of handy commands

BradRobinsonBradRobinson AUMember ✭✭✭

I've knocked together a little addin for Xamarin Studio (also MonoDevelop I guess, untested) that adds two handy commands:

  • Duplicate File (and search and replace contents at the same time)
  • Edit Project/Solution As Text

Haven't really tested it much, but it's pretty simple and so far seems to be working fine on XS under Windows.

Get it here:

    Thanks for this...

    On the untested part OSX part.

    I don't seem to have a:

    ~/Library/Application Support/XamarinStudio-4.0/LocalInstall/Addins

    And adding one didn't make anything happen

    Hrm... either the path is wrong, or the addin doesn't want to load under OSX for some reason (I'll check it out a bit later when I get a few moments). In the meantime, perhaps you can figure it out from the info here:

    (scroll down to where it talks about Addins)

    Nice! Have you considered publishing it on the addin build server so it shows up in the addins manager?

    @Stuart: I've just tried this under OSX and it seems to work fine when I install like this:

    mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/XamarinStudio-4.0/LocalInstall/Addins
    cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/XamarinStudio-4.0/LocalInstall/Addins
    curl -OL

    You can check if its loaded in Addin manager under "IDE Extensions".

    @Mike: Happy to put it up there, though I might test it for a few days first. Also, the link you supplied doesn't seem to work - no response.

    Also, I fixed a couple of little issues, so please download again.
