It's a telerik two'fer day... JustCode adds Visual Studio Settings (and Extension) Cloud Sync'ing

telerik - Save Your Visual Studio Settings in the Cloud

"It has always been a tedious job to set up your Visual Studio settings when you change machines or companies, create a new Virtual Machine with Visual Studio to test something, or reinstall your Visual Studio. Now, using the Visual Studio Setting in the Cloud feature of Telerik JustCode you can synchronize your Visual Studio settings between every machine with Visual Studio and JustCode installed.

By using this feature you’ll be able to:

  • Save and download all or a selection of your Visual Studio settings
  • Create and store a Visual Studio settings backup in the cloud and restore as needed
  • Automatically download your Visual Studio settings whenever they are changed
  • Keep different sets of settings for different versions of Visual Studio
  • Save and sync extension settings kept in Visual Studio’s settings

You can initially setup the JustCode cloud feature from the Getting Started Dialog; just go to the third page and enter your Telerik user credentials. From this screen, you also have the option to enable the “Automatic download of VS settings” feature.



If you are not a fan of tools doing things automatically and taking control away from you, you will love the manual cloud sync feature provided by JustCode. To use this feature, go to “Options -> Cloud Sync” and press the “Upload VS Settings” button.



If you want to use the same Visual Studio settings on every machine and do not want to manually download the cloud settings every time they are changed, you will find the “Enable automatic download if cloud settings are changed” option of JustCode extremely useful. All you need to do is to enable it from the “Cloud Sync” page.


Sync extension settings between machines

The JustCode cloud feature not only synchronizes Visual Studio settings, it also synchronizes extensions settings that are stored in the Visual Studio settings file. JustCode makes it as easy to share your extensions settings across many machines as it does Visual Studio settings.


The JustCode cloud features allow you to synchronize your JustCode and Visual Studio settings across all of your machines. This eliminates the tedious task of exporting a Visual Studio settings file on one machine and then importing it on another. You can also create backup settings, allowing you to change settings between solutions with ease.

JustCode makes development faster, easier, and more efficient. If you still have not tried JustCode, what are you waiting for? Download the 30-day free trial today!


Interesting to see how the ISV's are branching out and providing so much more than just control suites. Now do I need this? Not right now. I've got one VS install and two home (and one of those isn't used much). But if/when my VS count increases any more, I'm going to take another look at this. The Extension sync alone...
