BBuilder - Open source batch builder

One day my friend told me he needed to change his way of releasing builds. It meant he had to fix a batch to compile and publish several products. Such a process can be tedious since it has to be very reliable and you have to remember all the required DOS commands. Each step of a batch is in fact a command that can be accomplished in pure DOS or executing external executable files. So I thought it would be cool to make a batch editor in the following way:

  1. Choose a command from a toolbox

  2. Support re-ordering

  3. Save it to disk for further use

  4. Visualize all commands in a simple way

  5. Enable adding custom tools as plug-ins

  6. Test the batch before it goes somewhere (Scheduled Tasks) with optimizations
