Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site - error while debugging SharePoint application


In case if you want to deploy, test or debug a SharePoint application on you newly created web site you can gen an error which looks like this

Error occurred in deployment step 'Install app for SharePoint': Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site.

It means that the site does not have development feature enabled. Strange and stupid error message which could be more descriptive!

the solution is actually more stupid. you cannot enable it from features because it is hidden, so just run this from PowerShell and enjoy.
