The Visual Studio Code Extension Manager
Node.js at least
Or simply Docker.
Install vsce globally:
npm install -g vsce
Verify the installation:
vsce is meant to be mainly used as a command line tool. It can also be used a library since it exposes a small API. When using vsce as a library be sure to sanitize any user input used in API calls, as a security measurement.
Usage via Docker
You can also build a container for running vsce:
git clone https://github.com/microsoft/vscode-vsce cd vscode-vsce docker build -t vsce .
Validate the container:
docker run -it vsce --version
Publish your local extension:
docker run -it -v $(pwd):/workspace vsce publish
First clone this repository, then:
npm i npm run watch # or `watch-test` to also run tests
Once the watcher is up and running, you can run out of sources with:
npm run vsce
Publish to NPM
Simply push a new tag and the CI will automatically publish to NPM. The usual flow is:
npm version [minor|patch] git push --follow-tags
This tool assists in packaging and publishing Visual Studio Code extensions.
