This is not the latest version of psake available.


psake is a build automation tool written in PowerShell. It avoids the angle-bracket tax associated with executable XML by leveraging the PowerShell syntax in your build scripts. psake has a syntax inspired by rake (aka make in Ruby) and bake (aka make in Boo), but is easier to script because it leverages your existent command-line knowledge.

psake is pronounced sake � as in Japanese rice wine. It does NOT rhyme with make, bake, or rake. |
You can also install with chocolatey ( and have global psake.

To install psake, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install psake -Version





This package has no dependencies.
