Everything SharePoint and XAML

My continuous learning of SharePoint, XAML, Silverlight, Windows Phone 7, Windows 8, Office, VSTO, C#…


SharePoint Tools

  1. AC’s VS CodeRush/Refactor Tools for SharePoint Developers – Additions for CodeRush & Refactor! Pro Visual Studio productivity add-ins created by Andrew Connell. These include a dynamic list for SharePoint types, XML templates addressing the various XML files we use in SharePoint (eg: Feature schema, solution schema, field type definitions, *.webpart files, etc) as well as some refactorings.
  2. CAML Query Builder
  3. STSDEVSTSDEV is a proof-of-concept utility application which demonstrates how to generate Visual Studio project files and solution files to facilitate the development and deployment of templates and components for the SharePoint 2007 platform including Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS) and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS).

Web Tools

  2. YSlow for Firebug – YSlow analyzes web pages and tells you why they’re slow based on the rules for high performance web sites. YSlow is a Firefox add-on integrated with the popular Firebug web development tool.
  3. IE Developer Toolbar – Close to Firebug but not there yet
  4. CSS Vista: A tool to compare CSS between IE and FireFox
  5. Fiddler – Fiddler is a HTTP Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect all HTTP Traffic, set breakpoints, and “fiddle” with incoming or outgoing data.
