#VS2015 – #TFS2015 is here and a bonus with a nice set of extensions (#Git included!)

Hola!

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.

TFS Source Control History Visualization

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

TFS Source Control Explorer Extension

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

TFS Productivity Pack (Visual Studio 2015)

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

A complete review is also available on video https://vimeo.com/120608354

TFS Auto Shelve for Visual Studio 2015

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.

Visual Studio Tools for Git

You already know this. You must konw this.

Git Commit Formatter

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)..

GitFlow for Visual Studio 2015

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 !!!

#VS2015 – #TFS2015 is here y estas extensiones te ayudaran a trabajar mejor (#Git included!)

Hola!

Hoy es viernes de extensiones. Eso sí, como ayer se presentó oficialmente Team Foundation Server 2015, hoy voy a recomendar algunas con las que más trabajo, que ya están actualizadas a TFS2015.

TFS Source Control History Visualization

Empiezo con una idea genial. Si quieres tener una idea gráfica sobre cómo ha evolucionado una rama de tu source control esta herramienta genera un chart animado que es bastante útil. Por ejemplo, en el siguiente video podemos ver

– El proyecto comienza en Enero de este año, y participan David y Scott en el mismo.

– En el camino se suma Ana y Senthil al desarrollo

– En el 00:50 que es a mediados de Abril me sumo como Developer un tiempo al proyecto

– En el 01:10, Junio del 2015; hago un cambio brutal de código. Con un esquema de organización de código bastante diferente al original (preparando el camino para Windows 10)

TFS Source Control Explorer Extension

Empiezo con un clásico. La primera vez que escribí sobre la misma fue allá por el 2011 para TFS2010 (la última vez hace poco tiempo). Hoy muchas de las funcionalidades originales de la herramienta ya son parte de TFS2015 y VS2015. Me siguen pareciendo imprescindibles

Move to Folder, la capacidad de poder mover más de un archivo a un directorio desde el Source Control Explorer

Branch to Folder, ídem que el anterior pero trabajando con ramas

Destroy, ahora con un doble Check de validación antes de eliminar elementos

TFS Productivity Pack (Visual Studio 2015)

Esta es una de las que tengo instaladas casi todo el tiempo, ya que tiene un par de funcionalidades que uso bastante, por ejemplo>

– Seleccionar un elemento en Solution Explorer y abrir el mismo en el Source Control Explorer. No voy a comentar el jardín de workspaces en los que he tenido que poner un poco de orden, esta funcionalidad me ayuda a ver por dónde van los tiros.

– Compare to Branch, el nombre lo dice todo y la siguiente imagen es mejor aún

Esta extensión tiene un video muy bueno en https://vimeo.com/120608354

TFS Auto Shelve for Visual Studio 2015

Una idea bastante buena. Te gustaría tener un “auto save” en tus soluciones de código? Aunque en lugar de hacerlo en local, hacerlo en server?. Pues juntando el concepto de Shelve y TFS, esta extension propone una solución a este problema.

Cada N minutos, crea un Shelve con los archivos modificados. De esta manera tus “cambios” quedan auto guardados en el servidor TFS.

Visual Studio Tools for Git

Si tienes VS2015, seguramente ya las conoces. En caso contrario, deberías descargarlas y darles un vistazo.

Git Commit Formatter

Sobre esta utilidad ya escribí un post hace un tiempo (link). Esta extensión formatea los comentarios en modo 50/72 dentro del panel de Git en Visual Studio.

GitFlow for Visual Studio 2015

Cuando hablamos de TFS, algunos excluyen por defecto a GIT. Desde hace un par de versiones podemos tener repositorios basados en Git. Y claro, una herramienta como GitFlow es un #MustHave para nosotros. Jakob le hace un repaso muy interesante en este post a su herramienta

Pues ahora es el momento de ponerse a actualizar servidores TFS2013 a TFS2015.

Buen fin de semana

Saludos @ Madrid

[#VS2015] TFS Source Control Explorer Extension for Visual Studio 2015

Hello!

I’ve got to start with this “this extension is a #MustHave if you work with Visual Studio and TFS”. And now the good news, now is available for Visual Studio 2015. I think that after this, I have fewer chances to go back to VS2013, and my work will be done from Visual Studio 2015

By the way, have you seen that nice Destroy Work Item option ?

[#VS2015] TFS Source Control Explorer Extension para Visual Studio 2015

Hola!

Pues eso, que esta extensión que es un #MustHave si trabajas con Visual Studio y TFS ya está disponible para Visual Studio 2015. Creo que después de esto, ya tengo menos obligaciones para volver a VS2013, y todo mi trabajo podrá ser realizado desde Visual Studio 2015

Por cierto, has visto que buena la opción Destroy Work Item ?

[#TFS2013] Do you need a sample source code of TFS integration? You got it! TFS WordAddIn is OSS

Hello!

I-m trying to getup and do some stuff while I’m dealing with a strange fever. So i just found that the ALM Rangers have released, the source code for the Word AddIn which works with TFS. The Homepage is on CodePlex, and here you will find some explanation about the project. It would nice to use GitHub (as other MS teams have been done) and in the part of recommendations that specify the version of WiX needed to compile the installer of the AddIn.

Otherwise thanks a project with a diagram of the layers to understand the internal structure, a little use of Unity to disengage a little and even Moq and tests to validate the correct evolution if you want to make changes.

WordAddin

Below I leave you a few details about the project and if I get bored, I do 4 changes for an idea I have for some time and that it can be useful!

Greetings @ Fever 40°

[#VS2013] Quieres un poco de source code ejemplo de integracion con TFS? Pues TFS WordAddIn es tu opcion

Hola!

Menuda joya me he encontrado mientras revisaba posts y demás. Resulta que los ALM Rangers han liberado, a modo de ejemplo, el código fuente del AddIn para Word para trabajar con TFS. En la página principal de CodePlex, se explica donde poner sugerencias y como compilarlo. Aqui sería bueno comentar que usen GitHub (como vienen haciendo otros equipos de MS) y en la parte de recomendaciones, que especifiquen la versión de WiX necesaria para compilar el instalador del AddIn.

Por lo demás se agradece un proyecto con un diagrama de capas para comprender un poco la estructura interna, el uso de Unity para desacoplar un poco e inclusive Moq y tests para validar la correcta evolución si es que quieres hacer cambios.

WordAddin

Debajo dejo un par de datos sobre el proyecto y si me aburro, le hago 4 cambios para una idea que tengo desde hace tiempo y que puede ser útil !!!

Saludos @ 40º de fiebre
