I am a new sharepoint developer. I am creating a web template from scratch in visual studio.
I am finding it time consuming when creating/editing pages in visual studio e.g. adding web parts to pages etc.
To combat this what i have started to do is create the pages in sharepoint designer (add web parts to the pages etc). After i have done this i copy and paste the markup into visual studio.
Is this bad practice? Are there any better ways to do this?
