Azure IoT Edge for VS Code 1.6.0 has been released – One click to switch IoT Edge platform

Xin Shi

Now Azure IoT Edge for VS Code 1.6.0 has been released with a bunch of new features.

What’s new in Azure IoT Edge for VS Code 1.6.0

  1. Now you can have multiple *.template.json files in solution for your own purpose.
  2. By default, you can get a deployment.debug.template.json file with all debug dockerfile and createOptions when creating new projects.
  3. You can switch your Azure IoT default platform (linux-amd64, linux-arm32v7 and windows-amd64) in just one click.
  4. You can put JSON object for your createOptions in *.template.json, and VS Code will stringify it into deployment.json.
  5. You can import 3rd party module template now. TypeEdge is the first 3rd party module, which introduces a strongly-typed flavor of the inherently loosely coupled vanilla Azure IoT Edge.
