Version 0.6 was released on July 22nd, 2015.
The Alchemy4Tridion Developer Pack Visual Studio Extension has been released with this version! You can download the extension from the Visual Studio Gallery by searching for "Alchemy4Tridion" or by downloading it here. The extension currently includes Project Templates for new plugin projects and for converting an existing GUI Extension (currently experimental and not all items are converted), as well as various Item Templates for the different components your plugin can contain.
Project properties AlchemyRemoveBuildFiles and AlchemyUploadDialog
to help control what files are automatically cleaned up when you build your plugin project and
Upload to Webstore should appear (all the time, never, only
under specific configurations, etc).
Constants for 'GroupIds' for your Ribbon Toolbar Extensions.
// Add your extension to the Publish group on the Home tab GroupId = Constants.GroupIds.HomePage.PublishGroup;
Auto created NuGet package classes gone!
The Alchemy4Tridion.Plugin package no longer contains automatically created classes that inherit from AlchemyPluginBase and AlchemyApiController. Having a class that inherits AlchemyPluginBase is mandatory so its a must that you add one yourself now, and you'll have to add a controller if you want to use web services.
This was done as during updates the automatically added classes would be prompted to get overwritten. The Visual Studio Project Templates from the Alchemy4Tridion Developer Pack still contains these automatically added items though, so you should use those if you desire to have them.
