Chewie article in Visual Studio Magazine

My friend and Chewie contributor Ian Davis does more than just help out his fellow OSS project owners. He also writes some of the best articles in Visual Studio Magazine. It just so happens that today he wrote an article on using Chewie to clean up Nuget dependancies.

BTW Ian is also the guy behind Toji which makes it even more awesome to use Psake.

Introducing Chewie for nuget

So anyone following my friends and co-workers Jeff Schumacher (@codereflection), Adron Hall (@adronbh) and Bobby Johnson (@NotMyself) is aware that today we [ok really just them, I was busy on a diff less awesome project] started giving nuget a serious trial run to manage our extensive list of dependencies. A lot of which are not available on nuget at the moment.

This prompted a few blog posts from the guys here and here.

We kinda came up with the idea that we really needed something along the lines of bundler for ruby gems. So I started with the most simple version possible and Chewie was born. (All credit for the name goes to @NotMyself). At the moment its a basic file and a single line of powershell goodness.

check it out and contribute @ github
