I mentioned Chocolatey and Powershell quite often in the last time, today I created two little helpers and uploaded them to the chocolatey gallery.
The two super-awesome (and simple) packages called SharePoint.HiveShortcut.Desktop and SharePoint.HiveShortCut.Explorer – and the name indicates it, they create shortcuts to the hive folder.
I could just upload the two lines of powershell on this blog, but I totally like the Chocolatey approach – makes it easy for everyone.
Video or it did not happen!
Why you need the Hive-folder?
Good question, most of the time if something is not working as expected. Ever wondered if a feature is where it should be? Images missing? Unsupported customizations? 14-/ 15- folder is the place to go.
SharePoint.HiveShortcut.Desktop: Chocolatey Gallery
SharePoint.HiveShortcut.Explorer: Chocolatey Gallery
Github repository for all my SharePoint chocolatey packages.
Next tools for Chocolatey
On my personal roadmap are two tools which will be available on the chocolatey gallery very soon.
- SharePoint Manager
- Caml Designer
