Error occurred in deployment step Install SharePoint Add-in Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site

Recently while working with developing a SharePoint hosted add-in, while deploying the add-in, I got the error as Error occurred in deployment step ‘Install SharePoint Add-in’. Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site. It looks like below:

Error occurred in deployment step 'Install SharePoint Add-in'. Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site
Error occurred in deployment step ‘Install SharePoint Add-in’. Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site

Error occurred in deployment step ‘Install SharePoint Add-in’. Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site

Actually while developing a SharePoint hosted add-in you should provide a developer site. You should create a developer site using the developer site template and you should give that URL in your visual studio reference.

You can follow How to create developer site in Office 365 SharePoint 2013 Online? and also you can check the SharePoint 2013 Developer Site Template overview.

The above solution works for me.

Also, you can check the below solution which I followed from this MSDN article.
