Recently WSPBuilder caught my attention, and I started to play a little with the command-line tool. WSPBuilder dramatically eases the creation of WSP-Files to deploy SharePoint solutions.
But even more interesting would be an integration into Visual Studio – and since I’m not the first one to recognize this need there is already an addin.
Unfortunately the menu-extension is not visible on my german installation of Windows (and Visual Studio). So there is some manual work needed:
- copy the
C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Anwendungsdaten\Microsoft\MSEnvShared\Addinsto
C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\MSEnvShared\Addins.
- startup Visual Studio and make sure the addin is being started by checking the appropriate check-box.
