I’m a fan of things that make my working life easier. Here are my current top 5 (free!) extensions for Visual Studio 2013. Bear in mind that I’m currently working mainly with C# and XAML.
- ClipboardHistory – Keeps a history of anything that you put on your clipboard.
- Pretty Paste – Kills extra line spaces or line numbers when pasting wodges of code around. Very handy for reusing XAML when a template won’t cut the job!
- Productivity Power Tools 2013 – Just install it. This is awesome.
- ResXManager – Too many languages to deal with? This helps you to manage all of them. Highly useful!
- XamlFormatter – Formats XAML sensibly. Fixes any dodgy indentation you may have inadvertently left behind.
