I have been working with T4 (Text Template Transformation Toolkit) lately thanks to the Entity Framework team moving their code generation model over to T4 in Visual Studio 2010. However by default Visual Studio 2008 and 2010 do not include syntax highlighting or intellisense support for T4 files, which makes it rather difficult to work with them (very difficult at times!). Thankfully there are partners who address this. The one I am using with Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2010 is the Tangible T4 editor. You can easily add this into Visual Studio using the Extensions Manager from the Tools menu:

Once added, it will change this:

Sweet!

Hi Eric,

I seem to be having trouble downloading Tangible T4 Editor for VS 2010 Beta 2. Do you have a direct link? Thanks,

Tony
