For Sharp Architecture v2.0 one of the problems the development team was very keen to solve was the problems end users have getting started with Sharp Architecture.
Visual Studio Templates, T4 code generation files, dropping custom DLLs in particular folders etc... all of these steps are painful for the end user and painful for the development team as the majority of the support requests on the discussion group are about environmental set-up problems - these are the most time consuming and difficult problems to solve - they are also a time sponge that prevents the team from devoting time to making Sharp Architecture a better product.
A few weeks ago I started working on a new deployment mechanism for Sharp Architecture - once I had a working prototype it soon became apparent that the scope of this tool far exceeded just Sharp Architecture as it could be used as a generic template and packaging tool - so we made the decision to split it off into it's own OSS project.
So without further ado - let me introduce you to Templify.
