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 0.3.2 release is generally compatible with previous releases.
- commands to create configs & actions were added
- xpm install is available as a separate entry in the explorer, runnable
- 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.
