Tridion Alchemy Plugin – Using latest release

September 29th, 2015 | Posted by Robert Curlette in A4T

Starting an Alchemy plugin project is super easy. In this post I just want to mention a quick tip that will help you use the latest version of the framework for your Alchemy potions.

1. Download the Alchemy4Tridion Developer Pack (VSIX Visual Studio Project template). This gives us some really cool filetypes in the File, New dialog:

2. After creating a new project, go to the Nuget Package manager and search for ‘A4T’ and install the framework. This makes sure your Alchemy DLL is the latest, and also gives you the goodness of the Visual Studio templates.

3. Get a good clean example to follow. As of September, 2015 this is the CopyInfo example from Alex Klock for me. The Big Box of Samples is intended to be the ‘Unit Testing’ plugin for the Alchemy devs, so lots of goodies to be found there too!


Have you built an Alchemy plugin that is a good starting point? Leave a comment below with a link to the source code. Thanks!
