Favorite SharePoint Development Tools?
Here’s a four free development tools you shouldn’t start a SharePoint development project without:
- CAML Builder from U2U (http://www.u2u.be/Res/Tools/CamlQueryBuilder.aspx): Build and test your CAML queries and paste into your code.
- CKS (Community Kit for SharePoint, Tools Edition) (http://cksdev.codeplex.com/ ): Makes the SharePoint development cycle tolerable (almost). Version 2 was released May 2011.
- ULS Viewer (http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer ) In my opinion, the best.
- SharePoint Manager (http://spm.codeplex.com/). Invaluable for browsing a SharePoint farm, viewing and changing parameters and option.
For uploading single or groups of files from the desktop or mail messages from Outlook I use, of course, our “SPDrag&Drop” tool. Take a trial by downloading from here: http://www.nickgrattan.net/SPDragDrop/ProductInfo.aspx
