Cake (C# Make) is a cross-platform build automation system with a C# DSL for tasks such as compiling code, copying files and folders, running unit tests, compressing files and building NuGet packages.

It ships both as a .NET Tool, a library for using in console applications and a .NET Framework executable and runs on Windows, Linux and macOS.

Out of the box it contains a number of different aliases to allow you to quickly orchestrate your build process, such as MSBuild, DotNet Core CLI, NuGet, and Chocolatey. In addition, there are over 280 community driven addins which allow you to perform other build tasks.

Extensions which enhance usability while working with Cake builds are also available for editors and IDE's as well as build systems.
