This package contains implementations of commonly-used MSBuild tasks that ship with MSBuild itself.

You do not need to reference this package to use these tasks in a build--they are available in any MSBuild environment.

If you are writing a new task, you may wish to reference Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Core and derive from Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Task or Microsoft.Build.Utilities.ToolTask.

This package delivers a complete executable copy of MSBuild. Reference this package only if your application needs to load projects or execute in-process builds without requiring installation of MSBuild. Successfully evaluating projects using this package requires aggregating additional components (like the compilers) into an application directory.

**Pickles** is an open source **living documentation** generator that works on feature files written in the *Gherkin* language, popularized in tools like *Cucumber* and *SpecFlow*. *Pickles* can be incorporated into your build process to produce living documentation in a format that is more accessible to your clients. *Gherkin* language files are written in plain text and stored in your source folder. This can make them inaccessible to clients who may not know how to work with source control or who are not interested in seeing all of the source code, just the features. *Pickles* can produce output in different formats: - Static HTML: a set of HTML files with minimal JavaScript - Dynamic HTML: a JavaScript-rich single page app with integrated search - Word: Microsoft Word - Excel: Microsoft Excel - JSON: a custom JSON format - Markdown: a simple output format Optionally, *Pickles* can **integrate test results**, so that your stakeholders know which scenarios pass validation. *Pickles* supports these test formats: - NUnit - MSTest - XUnit - SpecRun - Cucumber JSON
