I need to develop a solution in Visual Studio 2015 for SharePoint 2013 which has the ability to update and items to a list.
I have already created a solution which can query list items, but for this I used ClientContext, Web and CAML Queries.
For my next project, I would like to use the official SharePoint REST APIs as this seems like a far better option.
However, when I select
File -> New Project -> SharePoint 2013 - Empty Project, I am seeing this message:
I have installed the Office Developer Tools for VS 2015 as suggested elsewhere online, but this had no effect.
I am developing on a machine which is on the same network as the SharePoint site I wish to connect to, but I am not developing on the actual server.
How can I configure my machine so that I can create SP solutions remotely?
