SharePoint Development Tip: Watir + WatirRecorder++ == Goodness

Much of SharePoint development is sheer drudgery.  Watir and WatirRecorder++ to the rescue!

Need to remove and re-add a workflow to a document library or list?  That’s a lot of PITA keystrokes and clicks, and a lot of awful screens of “View Source”.  Use WaterRecorder and drive your IE session around the actions you need to repeat.

Tired of recreating steps in a workflow to get to one step where you can begin debugging?  See above.

Watir and WatirRecorder have been a nice breath of fresh air in an otherwise miserable several weeks of MOSS development.

Next up: Trying PowerShell to see if I can get any speed improvements!
