You want to get started developing for SharePoint 2013 but you are missing the necessary templates in Visual Studio 2012 ?
Not all versions of Visual Studio 2012 will work
First of all you need Visual Studio 2012, at least Professionnal edition. Premium won’t do it!
Finding the templates
Having a look at the available projects you will find Sharepoint 2010 templates but no 2013.
Here is a place to start downloading some templates for SharePoint development :
In the tool section click “Download the tools” to get the Microsoft Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2012.
And it will start the Web Platform Installer 4.0 asking you to install the Microsoft Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2012 – Preview 2.
Click Install and it will show you a long list of items to download and install.
Remark : IIS wasn’t installed and configured on my Windows 8 laptop before the download
After a while voila :
and voila :
Happy SharePointing !!
