Visual Studio 2012 templates for SharePoint 2013
So I just fired up Visual Studio 2012 and went to create a new SharePoint 2013 App just to play around with. Only to find that Visual Studio only has the 2010 templates available.
The search to find out what I needed to install wasn’t as quick and simple as I was hoping so now that I have worked it all out i may as well share with the rest of you.
Assuming you have Visual Studio 2012 installed. Go to
Scroll down and under the tools section there is a web downloader (Direct Link). Download and run it, it will download everything you are missing.
After a couple of restarts you can then create 2013 projects in visual studio
Hope that helps
