MvcContrib – Portable Area – Visual Studio project template
I just uploaded a visual studio project template for creating portable areas.
You can find the release here: http://mvccontrib.codeplex.com/releases/view/43162
This project template includes a little msbuild trick to automatically include all of your content files as embedded resources, so you do not have to remember to manually keep track of them. This was a neat little trick that Steve Michelotti pulled together.

As time permits I will put together a walk through using the new project template. It is really pretty simple if you read through the Portable Area series on my blog.
