SharePoint 2010 tools for developer

I am recommend for a SharePoint 2010 developer should have the following tools installed on their development machine.

Microsoft Tools
  • SharePoint 2010 Designer
  • Visual Studio 2010
  • SharePoint Explorer
  • Install SharePoint “Developer Edition”

Add extension to you development environment.

SharePoint Manager 2010 : The SharePoint Manager 2010 is a SharePoint object model explorer. It enables you to browse every site on the local farm and view every property. It also enables you to change the properties.

WSP Builder : You can either download the CSK -Development tool or WSP Builder both having the same features but one of the best which I like, WSP builder 2010 work both on 2007 and 2010.

Notepad++ : Notepad++: a free source code editor.
