Azure DevOps extension generator

Generates a basic Azure DevOps extension with support for hot reload and debugging in VS Code. For more information about how hot reload and debugging works with Azure DevOps extensions, please see the azure-devops-extension-hot-reload-and-debug repo, as well as the accompanying blog post.


First, install Yeoman and generator-azure-devops-extension using npm (we assume you have pre-installed Node.js).

npm install -g yo
npm install -g @microsoft/generator-azure-devops-extension

Then generate your new project:

yo @microsoft/azure-devops-extension


Running the generator will result in the following file structure:

├── .eslintrc.js
├── .gitignore
├── .vscode
│   └── launch.json
├── README.md
├── configs
│   ├── dev.json
│   └── release.json
├── img
│   └── world.png
├── package.json
├── src
│   └── hub
│       ├── hub.html
│       ├── hub.scss
│       └── hub.tsx
├── tsconfig.json
├── vss-extension.json
└── webpack.config.js

What's next?

Now that you have generated a new project, you are ready to start debugging. Refer to the generated readme in your new project for instructions on how to get started. You should also check out our azure-devops-extension-hot-reload-and-debug repo for an in-depth look at how these features work.
