Codeplex recommendations

To make it somewhat easier to find active and interesting projects at Codeplex, I’ve put together a list of projects which I find useful and from sources I trust (at least so far :).

Solutions

Tools

  • SharePoint Manager 2007
    The SharePoint Manager 2007 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 (at your own risk). This is a very powerful tool for developers that like to know what the SharePoint holds of secrets.
  • SharePoint Management PowerShell Scripts
    A collection of PowerShell scripts for easier management of SharePoint.
  • SUSHI
    One of the best and most popular management tools for Sharepoint. SharePoint SUSHI is a powerful, user-friendly utility enabling you to accomplish common administrative tasks. You can think of SUSHI as a Swiss army knife for SharePoint.
    SUSHI = SharePoint Utility with a Smart, Helpful Interface

Possibilities beyond comparison

The CKS:EBE solution is one of the best solutions available for SharePoint and “Web 2.0” type web site. This entire site is based on WSS3 and EBE 2.5 (and some other minor additions) and includes several of the required web 2.0 features. Among other things, the site has basic functionality such as:

  • Anonymous comments posting
  • Taxonomy tagging
  • True RSS feeds
  • Modular themes
  • Trackbacks and permalinks
  • Forms based feedback/contact

…and features are still being added to the solution.

A special thanks goes to the author ‘The Kid’ and contributors.

Read more about this site and the solution behind it in the about pages.

N’Joy!

CKS:EBE 2.5 Review

November 23, 2008 Leave a comment

I’ve been using the Community Kit for Sharepoint Enhanced Blog Edition 2.5 Beta for a couple of weeks and is quite impressed. Even if there’s several features that does not work, and the solution is somewhat unstable, I think this is the best addition to Sharepoint regardless of FreeProg or commercial wares.

I’ve posted some requests and questions on the authors web site (The Kid), which I hope will be implemented in the next final release, and I certainly hope the final release of 2.5 is somewhat close by.

I will recommend this solution to anyone with a public WSS3 site which they want to make a bit more user friendly and appealing to the user.

My rating: 10 of 10!

N’Joy!
