My first VSCode plugin
Repo Link: https://github.com/shader-ls/vscode-shader
Aug 23rd, 2023. I’ve created my first VSCode plugin – vscode-shader. My intention was simple: to create a language server’s client in VSCode for my shader-language-server that I created a couple of months ago. 🤔
🔰 Simple and good UX
First of all, it is very simple to develop a VSCode plugin. Especially developing a language server’s client for VSCode. There are many examples and good documentation on their site, making it very easy for developers. I am using uniteai and grammarly-language-server as the references.
📦 Publish to VSCode Marketplace
Publishing to VSCode is probably the most challenging step since you need to navigate to Azure DevOps, which seems utterly irrelevant to VSCode Marketplace! 🤔 Then get the Personal Access Token in order to publish your packages to the marketplace. It’s still straightforward but quite confusing on the Azure DevOps part.
Then you just need to
npm install -g @vscode/vsce,
vsce package and
While publishing, you will be asked to enter your PAT!
You can see VSCode’s Publishing Extensions website for more information!
