Tools for SharePoint2010 Developers

I use the following tools on pretty much every SharePoint project I am working on and I’d like to share it with all the SharePoint devs and hopefully it will make your life a bit easier.

  1. The SharePoint Manager 2010 is a SharePoint object model explorer. It enables you to browse every site on the local farm and view every property.

    It also enables you to change the properties.

  2. This project extends the Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint project system with advanced templates and tools. Using these extensions you will be able to find relevant information from your SharePoint environments without leaving Visual Studio. You will have greater productivity while developing SharePoint components and you will have greater deployment capabilities on your local SharePoint installation.

  3. ULSViewer allows users to open a ULS log file and display its contents in a user friendly format. Users can then perform advanced functions such as filtering, sorting, highlighting, loading logs, appending logs, etc in order to single out the data that is important to the user. This information can be used to diagnose problems with machines running ULS services, or to monitor machines and the events they create in realtime.

  4. Process Explorer shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded.

  5. SPDisposeCheck is a tool that helps developers and administrators check custom SharePoint solutions that use the SharePoint Object Model helping measure against known Microsoft dispose best practices. This tool may not show all memory leaks in your code and may produce false positives which need further review by subject matter experts.

  6. The Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Power Tools is a set of templates and extensions that provides additional functionality to SharePoint developers who use the SharePoint developer tools in Visual Studio 2010.Below is the list of features included in the current release of the power tools.

    Sandboxed-compatible Visual Web Part
    This item template enables you to use a visual designer to create SharePoint web parts that can be deployed in a sandboxed solution for SharePoint 2010.

    Sandboxed Compilation
    This extension displays build errors when you use types or members in a SharePoint 2010 sandboxed project which are not allowed in the SharePoint sandbox environment.

  7. The CAML.NET IntelliSense extensions for Visual Studio 2010 is simply a must-have for SharePoint developers. It can help you tame that sometimes finicky, but ever-so-essential CAML language we all know and love.

  8. Build and test CAML Queries for SharePoint interactively with the U2U CAML Query Builder.CAML (Collaborative Application Markup Language) is an XML-based query language that helps you querying, building and customizing Web sites based on Windows SharePoint Services.
