+ - SourceMason Code Generator Beta Released

Submitted by
HoleyDooley writes "SourceMason is a new template-based code generator.

Templates can have properties of any type using the rich set of built in property editors, or through any of the .NET or custom built designers. SourceMason uses a simple syntax very similar to ASP.NET and therefore will be very familiar to most .NET developers.

SourceMason offers a feature rich IDE for code template development, which includes syntax highlighting, intellisense and code snippets. Complex code generation tasks can use sub templates, includes and custom assemblies. SchemaExplorer provides a generic interface to access schema information for all types of databases. It also provides a mechanism for the execution of generated database scripts."
