This chapter is only of interest if you want to make changes to the code of the vscode extension!
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:
- 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.
- Wait. Github will automatically build the extension, publish it to the Visual Studio Marketplace & upload the packaged extension to the release.
