Developer Guide


This chapter is only of interest if you want to make changes to the code of the vscode extension!

Development Basics

Build dependencies


npm install # installs all required dependencies
npm run package # builds the .vsix package

Github Release Process

To release a new extension version, the following steps must be followed:

  1. Create a new release on Github like described here. Set a tag version following semantic versioning rules (v<MAJOR>.<MINOR>.<PATCH>) and describe what has changed in the new version.
  2. Wait. Github will automatically build the extension, publish it to the Visual Studio Marketplace & upload the packaged extension to the release.

That's it! 😊
