Works great, but I really would like this for VS2015 so I don't have to keep bouncing back and forth.

Is there any way to run the Reverse Engineer Code First from the Command Line? I'd like to automate a rebuild whenever the data model changes using some custom templates. Thanks!

How could I report a bug or ask about an error?

Because in my mapping template when I try to get the tableSet in this way:

var tableSet = efHost.TableSet;

It works fine but the same code in the context template I get an error because the property efHost.TableSet is null, so I can't get the name of the tables.

Where could I get documentation about the classes Host and its methods and proerties?.

Thank you so much.

After i connect to my db, i see the context class is generated by the mapping folder is not even being created and all the table classes.

Finally, I installed EF Power Tools on VS2015 by these steps:
1. download the package
2. change .vsix to .zip and unpack it
3. open the extension.vsixmanifest file with any text editor
4. find following section
<VisualStudio Version="12.0">
5. copy and paste it behind and change the value of "Version" attribute to "14.0"
6. save
7. pack these files to zip again. (simply, select all files, rigt click, select send to, Compressed (zipped) folder).
8. rename the file extension to .vsix
9. install it (don't mind the signature warning, just let it go).

sorry for my poor english, hope this could help.
