This video explores the "Open Command Line" extension available on the Visual Studio gallery site. Learn how the extension works and what principles it demonstrates for your own custom extension.
- [Voiceover] In this movie, I'll look at…the open Command Line extension.…It's a simple tool that opens a command line…at the root of the project.…It supports all the console types,…like Command, PowerShell and Bash.…It's simple to use.…Right click on the console app,…or your project type here.…Choose Open Command Line,…and then you'll have a choice of three items.…Default, Developer Command Prompt, and PowerShell.…When I choose this top item, Default,…it'll pick whatever the default console is,…and in my case it's the Command Line,…and you'll see that it opens…the standard Windows command shell.…
And the key thing here is that…it opens it to the path that contains my CS proj file.…So you see I'm here in Open Command Line,…and then this code folder which contains…my CS proj file and these other files.…Now if you've worked in a command line before…and you need to run a script…or a utility from Visual Studio,…you know that the normal process is to go…out here and run command,…then use the change directory command…to move to your project folder.…
