Azure IoT Toolkit for Visual Studio Code generally available for managing Azure IoT Hub and Devices with ease

Jun Han

Last year, we release the preview version of Azure IoT Toolkit extension for Visual Studio Code. With our continuous development, the Azure IoT Toolkit has a rich set of features to help IoT developers manage and develop Azure IoT Hub in Visual Studio Code. Now the Azure IoT Toolkit is generally available with over 100K downloads and all 5 stars ratings.

One of the key feature for GA is the Azure IoT Toolkit supports the Azure Device Login to make you easily login to Azure and manage (create, select) your IoT Hub in VS Code.

Another important feature set is support for the Azure IoT Edge. Azure IoT Edge is a fully managed service that delivers cloud intelligence locally by deploying and running artificial intelligence (AI), Azure services, and custom logic directly on cross-platform IoT devices. With the Azure IoT Toolkit, you could manage your IoT Edge Modules and create deployment for you IoT Edge devices.

Below are the full feature list of the Azure IoT Toolkit, and we are continuously add more features to improve this extension to make IoT developers build, deploy and test your IoT solution in VS Code with ease.
