CSharpZealot.com – OS Project: Crank

Major kudos to Michale Minutillo for getting version 0.3 out of Crank.

So what is Crank? First of all, it’s an open source project Michael started a couple of months ago. Michael published it first on CSharpZealot.com and i’m curious to see how that develops.

Secondly, here’s what Michael has to say about Crank:

Prepare to “Crank up” development on your next project with Crank. This tool uses a DSL called CAL to build an in-memory representation of a data model and then generates the SQL (compatible with SQL 2005 currently) to create that model in the database. The language is fully described and I already have some ideas for future feature (and where some of the bugs lie). The code is still a bit of a mess but please download the executable and have a play. I’d love to hear anyones feedback if they think it’s a good(/bad) idea or if they have any ideas for features etc.

Crank has a codeplex site at http://codeplex.com/crank

Cheers and Get Crankin’

    Cheers for that Brian. I’m still laughing over a post written about me being tagged “Cool Guys” πŸ™‚

    Like most OS projects the documentation sucks so I’m writing a couple of blog posts about how it all works. The first one is out already and is available here: http://wolfbyte-net.blogspot.com/2008/01/getting-started-with-crank-entities-and.html

    Hey Mike…

    bah..don’t pay to be too modest around here πŸ™‚

    besides, any bloke that gets time to setup an open source project as cool as Crank just has to be included in that list πŸ˜‰

    good job mate!
