TFS Build Explorer Folders–Finally

If you have a lot of TFS build definitions for your projects, its been a bit of a hassle that there is no way to organize and manage them in Team Explorer other than a long flat list.

Well, the good folks at Inmeta have released the Inmeta Build Explorer tool which displays build definitions in a hierarchy where names use a . notation to delineate the hierarchy.

Since most folks have been implementing a naming standard for builds which at least organize build definitions for ordering, this doesn’t seem like too big a limitation to me.

Jakob Ehn has a good post on it here.

Download the Inmeta Build Explorer from the Visual Studio Gallery today!

Oh this is awesome, thanks so much for posting this Aaron! We have just started creating separate builds for each of our feature branches here at iQmetrix and are now creating lots of build definitions. This will definitely help keep them cleaner :)
