App.config transforms with Slow Cheetah

Recently while working on a console app that I was building for work I found myself missing the web.config transforms that are used in web projects. For those who don’t know you can build transform file that will change your web.config files depending on what build type you are running at the time. This comes in extremely useful when you want to change configurations between debugging mode or release or whatever mode you may have like testing, etc. Unfortunately, this capability does not exist outside of web projects, so if your not using a web project you are out of luck. Slow Cheetah though is an add on for Visual Studio that gives you this ability outside of web projects. So if your making a non web project you owe it to yourself to add Slow Cheetah and construct some web transforms for your various different releases.
