This feature was added in November in Visual Studio Code v0.10.1.
With this release, we mark our official Beta milestone and the big news is that VS Code now supports extensions (plug-ins) and is open source!
VS Code Supports Extensions!
VS Code has great features out of the box but now you and the community can extend VS Code to add new features and languages.
Find and install cool extensions by searching VS Code’s public extension gallery. There you’ll find new themes, snippets, languages and tools.
VS Code has two new
Extensions commands (F1 then
'ext inst') to let you find and install new extensions and manage (update, uninstall) your currently installed extensions.
The VS Code also has a Marketplace where you can browse and learn more about extensions.
If you don’t find an existing extension that meets your development needs, you can create your own. We’ve added extensive documentation on how to extend VS Code and a full extensibility API reference. In addition, we provide the tools to you need to create and publish extensions.
If you’d like to dive right in, you can start with our “Hello World” walkthrough where you’ll have a VS Code extension up and running in a matter of minutes.
Yo Code Extension Scaffolding
We’ve updated the
vsce publishing tool lets you easily package and publish your extension. You can share your extension with colleagues by distributing a VS Code extension package or publish your extension for the community on the public gallery.
