Hey folks I'm hoping to get some help here... We are trying to move away from netbeans to keep all of our development on Visual Studio instead of some stuff on this IDE and some more on another IDE. So far we've purchased one vs.php license to start testing with. The problem that I've run into so far is I can't figure out how to make vs.php behave like netbeans... which is what we require.
Here is how we currently do things...
We check out a project from a subversion server.... roughly 40k or so files...
We go into netbeans and create a new project from existing sources.
We set up remote server that we will be uploading files to on save. (This is why we are moving away from netbeans since it does 2way sync, which is completely unreliable as it overwrites other developers code)
And then we finish the project.
Every so often in our directory structure on netbeans we can right click a folder to update it to SVN revision, or we have the option of *downloading* the directory from the development server. And also clicking the folder and hitting refresh, to see locally updated files from another IDE or text editor.
So what I'm trying to accomplish is, a local php / js project with upload on save.
Ability to right click a folder in the solution explorer and say refresh to reload the files in that directory and restart intellisense if required.
Ability to right click a folder in the solution explorer and download / upload all items within that folder to the remote sync server.
Please note that the right click doesn't necessarily have to be a right click option, although that would make life much easier.
Does *anyone* know how this can be accomplished.
We currently run Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate edition. Also please note that I am unfortunately not the most technical person in visual studio as I'm my development group's director, so saying stuff like just create a macro makes no sense to me without an example at least. I like Visual studio and would like to switch my team over, but without understanding it or being able to teach others how to do it I will be unable to generate any buzz for switching to vs.php instead of netbeans.
