Work with the IDE efficiently for Addon-Development

Dear Community,

how do you work with the IDE when it comes to addon development?

My current questions are:
How do I view the logs?
How can I enable / activate my addons which are residing as packages in my IDE?

Thanks in advance for your answer - of course I am aware that I am able to create the maven build and copy the generated jar file into my addon directory of another openhab instance and start the bundle by using the karaf console.
