Support AppVeyor - Continuous Integration for busy developers

Sep 3, 2014 at 8:01 AM
I know Microsoft tends to make its own standards, but would it be possible to once in a while support the standards the rest of the world is using?

I wan't to use AppVeyor which supports numerous code repository like github, but can't handle the Codeplex repository because of lack of APIs from CodePlex to have a proper integration with AppVeyor (absence of generic hooks is the major show-stopper) as mentioned here: http://help.appveyor.com/discussions/questions/388-codeplex-support

Also CommitMonitor (http://stefanstools.sourceforge.net/CommitMonitor.html) doesn't work properly with Codeplex. It can get the notifications but no details, like date and author.

When will CodePlex provide a standard API other can work with?

Thanks,

Paul

I want to second this... right now the lack of these features makes codeplex uncompetitive with github, which is a shame.
