Brilliant set of tools. No Lightswitch production system should be without these set of tools in its toolbox!

Payment only with paypal! That is not up to date.

Payment with PayPal is nothing to do with reviewing AIDE. Please explain why the AIDE product deserves only one star. Constructive feedback would be more helpful.
Also with PayPal you can use any major debit or credit card, this is very common. To process our own electronic payments would add $100 to the license price. You did not even download the software so your rating is worthless spam that disrespects the LightSwitch community.

It's a very useful tool for lightswitch. AIDE saves a lot of time in many tasks of the development process.
The support service answered me quickly and helped me a lot, they really are lightswitch experts.

Is this product still available? No response from website , support request , email or trial request error on submission. Please advise. Looks like it could be a nice product.

Yes. Thank you for your rating, though it is usual to try a product before supplying a rating. Perhaps we are old fashioned. I believe we have responded to all 3 of your support forum posts. Please accept our apologises for the current communication difficulties caused by Microsoft. One big drawback of using cloud based services is the total lack of control and notification of newly deployed breaking changes or bugs. I am sure they never mean to break things.

What a great set of tools!

Productivity is key for me, and with this set of tools I gain even more by churning out professional quality LightSwitch solutions in much less time - a huge value to my customers.

Well done Xpert360!

LightSwitch is heavily centered around meta-level programming: The line of business application structure is stored in "model files".
AIDE allows you to bring the meta level programming to again another level and opens up a wealth of new possibilities and time savings.

If you are serious about developing line of business apps with LightSwitch, you definitely need AID in your toolbox. The payback ratio of this tool is extremely high.

I use LightSwitch in my daily work, also I author books and articles about LightSwitch. I decided to try AIDE for a number of features it has and I can assure it is something you cannot miss in your LightSwitch toolbox. Not only it integrates perfectly in Visual Studio, it speeds up some common tasks such as inspecting entities, screen properties and duplicating screens. Really must-have.
