I am developing a SharePoint Hosted App through Visual Studio. It has all the default files. But when I tried to deploy the app, it shows Build Succeeded but Error in deployment.
Error occurred in deployment step 'Install app for SharePoint': Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site

The site collection should be based on "Developer Site" template or you have to enable sideloading feature if it's not, you can check this.


I found the hidden feature to enable on any site at on this post Enable Hidden Developer Site Feature


For SharePoint On-Premise, you can give enable developer site by below power shell command

Enable-SPFeature e374875e-06b6-11e0-b0fa-57f5dfd72085 -url <site URL>

Check if you are using a "Developer Site".

I was using a "Team Site" and got the same error, but creating a new "Developer Site" solved my issue.
