SPVisualDev & MOSS Feature Generator – Must have tools for SharePoint devs

Here is an interesting tool called SPVisualDev. Thought I could share with everyone 🙂

Without much boring texts, here is what you get with this wonderful tool

First, it creates this lovely folder structure for your project 🙂


You can easily specify the target for your project


Real time sync files from your local visual studio project with files in the 12-hive


Easy to add new features


Easy to edit feature settings


Easy to add ‘elements’ to your feature


Easy to install / activate SharePoint features from context menu


Integrates well with WSPBuilder


What else a SharePoint dev need! 🙂

Another cool project worth mentioning is the MOSS Feature Generator. The MOSS Feature Generator generates features out of existing functionalities on a MOSS 2007 site. This includes Site Columns, Content Types and ListTemplates (including schema.xml and forms). The tool will be expanded in two ways: a build tree will be created to make it possible to create dependant features in an organized way, and the number of supported features will be expanded.
