If you are a SharePoint developer, you must be knowing about the CKS dev tool which helps developers to deploy solutions. No controversy on this fact that this is top most tool to be used for creating SharePoint solutions with Visual Studio. It is really good news for all those who has been egregiously waiting for next release of CKS Tool competible with SharePoint 2013 and VS 2012. Most of the people are using Mavention Quick Deploy in absence of CKS.
Guys, the moon is not so far from you to touch, have a look on CKS: Development Tools Edition and download this tool and enjoy the easy deployments and upgrades. Once you install this tool you just need to right click on the SharePoint solution and you will get following options:
The modification from the earlier versions:
- Improvements to Quick Deploy – Performance improvements phase one and some minor defect fixes in GACUtil calls.
- Existing VS2010 SPI Providers – Projects with existing CKSDev SPIs now supported.
- SharePoint 2010 Console project template – Project template for a SharePoint 2010 console application.
- SharePoint 2013 Console project template – Project template for a SharePoint 2013 console application.
Happy SharePointing 🙂
