Missing page in plugin package deployement - Error 404


in your devguide (https://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/devguide/Extensions/Deployment/LocalInstallation.html)
a paragraph tells: "In order to test the extension against a custom instance (or even the main instance), it needs to be installed, and needs to be packaged up in a custom

file. This is detailed in the Packaging guide."
the link is broken: https://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/devguide/Extensions/Deployment.html


ps. This is a nightmare to test a plugin in a local instance. I'm sure you can do a simpler deployement way.

Oops. Sorry, that should be https://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/devguide/Extensions/Packaging.html.

Testing locally is a little involved:

  1. Build and create a package
  2. Add a local package source, and install the package
  3. Restart + test

But after you've done that once, you can generally just copy the assemblies over to the installation folder (although if you add a new Action, you'll need to reinstall, so the VS extension will pick up new or changed menu items)
