foreach (var file in Directory.GetFiles(bimlScriptsDirectory, "Val_*"))
	// Skip it if the file is this script (causes infinite recursion)
	if(file.ToLowerInvariant().Contains("val_p_project_previewallvalidationscripts.biml")) { continue; }

We have a number of "Validation" Biml Scripts that we use at development time to check a project. These include validations of things such as naming standards, correct use of variables and expressions, verifying documentation annotations exists, etc. This is a script that executes all of the validations at once to make it easier for developers. This script is meant to run in Preview mode so the output is available for developers to review. This assumes a standard naming convention.

This only works in Mist 3.3+. You will, of course, need to adjust to your own path and naming conventions.
