SharePoint 2013 and CKS:DEV
I use the Visual Studio CKSDEV plugin so much that I almost forgot it’s not standard Visual Studio functionality. It’s no doubt the number one tool when creating SharePoint solutions with Visual Studio.
Unfortunately the plugin is not yet updated for Visual Studio 2012 / SharePoint 2013. But the people at Mavention have created a small tool that mimics the “Copy to GAC” functionality. So it takes at least some of the pain away.
