Visual Studio 2015

I know .NET Demon won't work in Visual Studio 2015 because it has been deprecated. I liked the Save as you Type feature.
I was wondering if VS 2015 has a similar feature or an extension that does it. :?:

    Hi there and thanks for your post!

    I'm so sorry to say that I'm not sure of another tool with a similar feature and simple searching hasn't helped much either, unfortunately. If anyone else does know of an alternative that supports VS 2015 though, please do comment with the name below!

    (If it helps at all, Visual Studio itself does have an auto-save feature that you could configure to occur more frequently: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/saraford/archiv ... n-151.aspx)

    I used .net demon to only build the files that were necessary to build, thus saving lots of time. How has VS 2015 solved this problem and made .net demon no longer useful? I don't seem to be finding this functionality in VS 2015.

    I am not sure either. My understanding is that Redgate stopped developing .NET Demon for VS 2015 because Roslyn/VS 2015 have the same functionality. It don't see this. First the editor in VS 2015 doesn't automatically save the files as I type and whenever I edit code and run, VS starts compiling. I thought Roslyn is compiling in the background all the time but I don't see this. Maybe someone at RedGate can shed more light regarding how Roslyn made .NET Demon Obsolete (or at least not worth the effort of more development).

    I wish RedGate would open sourced .NET Demon and put it on GitHub and let the community advance it instead of it killed in the dark. I am sure they have their reasons.

    With the BuildOnSave & SaveAllTheTime VS extensions, they replicate what .NET Demon used to do.
