Visual Studio Add-Ins Every Developer Should Download Now

Posted by Vakul Kumar More on October 29, 2006


Visual Studio provides a rich extensibility model that developers at Microsoft and in the community have taken advantage of to provide a host of quality add-ins. Some add-ins contribute significant how-did-I-live-without-this functionality, while others just help you automate that small redundant task you constantly find yourself performing.

This article provides some of the best Visual Studio add-ins available today that can be downloaded for free. (Click on the links to explore them !!!)

They are:

TestDriven.NET  (www.testdriven.net)
GhostDoc  (www.roland-weigelt.de/ghostdoc)
Smart Paster (http://weblogs.asp.net/alex_papadimoulis/category/5341.aspx)
CodeKeep (www.codekeep.net)
PInvoke.NET (www.pinvoke.net)
VSWindowManager PowerToy (http://workspaces.gotdotnet.com/vswindowmanager)
WSContractFirst (www.thinktecture.com/Resources/Software/WSContractFirst/default.html)
CopySourceAsHTML (www.jtleigh.com/CopySourceAsHtml)
Cache Visualizer (http://blog.bretts.net)

There are also a lot of add-ins that can be purchased for a reasonable price(Though, I never bought one …) for some better options, as in some cases they can add some tremendous functionality to the IDE..

Happy Coding !!!

Note: GotDotnet Site is closed. Instead Microsoft has come up with MSDN Code Gallery. You can visit the site at http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/
