Today is Extensions Friday, So, because yesterday was the official release of Team Foundation Server 2015, today I’ll suggest a couple of extensions I use a lot and also some others very cool.
This one is a cool one. If you need a graphical representation of the history of your elements, give a try to this extension. You will get an animated chart with the users, source code elements, and interactions in a nice mode.In example: this is the time line of the next video
– Project starts in January 2015, David and Scott are the developers
– Later, Ana and Senthil are incorporated into the project
– In mid April (00:50) I start as a developer in the proyect
– In June 2015 (01:10) I make a brutal source code change. I basically adds tons of new features and also change the complete code base to be Windows 10 compliant
Let’s start with a classic. The first time I wrote about this extension was on 2011 for TFS2010 (las one a few days ago). Some of the original features of the extension now are included in TFS2015 and VS2015. However, I still use a lot:
– Move to Folder, move one or more files or folders in Source Control Explorer
– Branch to Folder, similar to the previous one focus on branches
– Destroy, now with a double check before you permanently delete elements
I have this one almost all the time, there are some cool stuff like
– Select a file in Solution Explorer and find this file in Source Control Explorer. If you help some hell devs with crazy workspaces, this may help a lot.
– Compare to Branch, a image is the best way to expliain this one
This is new one, with a good idea. If you ever think in a server version of an “auto save feature,”, this extension got it using Shelves..
Every N minutes, creates a ShelveSet with the local changes in the TFS. So is a cool way to have an AutoSave in server mode for TFS.
You already know this. You must konw this.
I wrote a single post some time ago about this one (link). This extension format the comments in the GitHub window using the 50/72 format (in the link below there is plenty of information about this)..
I’m writing about TFS, and of course this also include GIT. So GitFlow is a #MustHave for us. Jakob, the author, mkes a great review in this post
So, now is time to start the upgrade from TFS2013 to TFS2015.
Nice Weekend !!!
