Possible to build .tca file directly from the source code?

We currently have a CI/CD setup that continuously build the source code and create application target file that ready to flash to the board in the production. But this setup has its own problems. The biggest one is the process is fragile since it use the AutoIt script to open solution in visual studio, hit F5 to deploy to the target board and then use TinyCLR Config tool to create & save the target flash file.

Is it possible we can create the board target file (.tca ) just from visual studio instead of go through special tool to recreate it from deployed target board?

Yes possible in the future. We should defiantly look into it.

Hi Gus, is there any plan implementing this soon? Thanks.

The is a nice to have feature and gets low priority until someone demonstrates a serious commercial need.
