Building extensions for Visual Studio has its challenges, but as the new PM on the extensibility team I’ve made it my mission to make it easier. One way of doing that is to provide features that can take some of the pain out of common tasks associated with extension authoring.
Here are three brand new extensions that might be helpful.
This extension shows the group and menu identifiers of existing commands to make it easy to find out where to place your custom commands.
This extension provides a tool window for looking at the Visual Studio registry hive. It shows the registry from both the UserRegistryRoot and ApplicationRegistryRoot (_Config).
Provides a tool window for Visual Studio extension authors that lets you easily browse all the image monikers in the KnownMonikers catalog and save them at any size to PNG, JPG or Gif on disk.
All three extension require Visual Studio 2017 Update 6 since it uses the new Async Tool Window feature.
I hope these extensions will help make you a more productive and happier Visual Studio extender. Let me know in the comments.
