The VS Code xPack C/C++ Managed Build Extension is available as ilg-vscode.xpack from the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
It can also be installed from a terminal:
code --install-extension email@example.com
The 0.1.5 release is generally compatible with previous releases.
- an xPacks Actions explorer, implemented as a tree view, was added; it
provides a convenient way to navigate between multiple build configurations
and actions; to make it visible, open a
xpm initand add the xpack property (for example from the above code)
- actions are integrated into the usual VS Code workflow by associating
internal tasks with each action; separate tasks are added for common
- npm picks
package.jsonfrom xPack dependencies, which is generally not useful; the workaround is to add a property to
(fixed in 0.4.10)
The ilg-vscode.xpack extension is fully portable and works on any platform supported by VS Code; internally it relies on xpm, which is also a portable application running on all platforms supported by npm/node.
However, for projects using binary xPacks, they are available mainly on the modern platforms, like Windows/macOS/Linux.
