"Make Batch Files" - Rapid Windows Batch Files Creation
« on: December 12, 2013, 07:33 AM »
Hello, everybody!

I'd like to introduce you to my new project called "Make Batch Files". It's in alpha version now, but has enough functions to play with.

The main ideas are pretty simple:
  • No need to remember batch file command names
  • No need to remember numerous switches, their meanings and how they work together
  • "Tasks" instead of commands

Say, you need to upload a file via FTP from a batch file and this is the first or second time you do this trick. First, you need to find out what command to call to use ftp, then you need to learn how to use it in batch files, investigate it's script file format and etc. What a waste of time  :) With my tool you only need to add "Upload a file via FTP" task to your project, specify host, username, password and file path using comfortable GUI dialog and that's it. The tool will create several lines of code including ftp script for you in a single mouse click.

Hope you got the idea  :) ANY feedback is welcome (even largely negative)!
