The last three months I’ve been working less with SharePoint and more with Angular 4/Node JS projects. This change forced me to use less Visual Studio and dive deep into Visual Studio Code in almost every task.
While working with VSCode, I’ve been testing some Gulp tasks like SPSave and SPSync for automatizing file changes to SharePoint, just for fun. Because I just can’t accept SharePoint Designer anymore, my patience with it ran out.
Also the Windows feature to map a network drive to a SharePoint library isn’t good too, at least for me.
So basically the gulp tasks did the trick, but they aren’t that easy to be understood for some more “traditional” programmers in my company, which would end with few adopters here.
So while searching for SharePoint extensions just for curiosity, I found the SPGO Extension and it really impressed me!
Basically it’s an extension that with some basic setup you can start syncing files from your computer with SharePoint libraries.
