Semantic Kernel Tools

Shannon Monroe

We are excited to announce the release of Semantic Kernel Tools, the first Semantic Kernel extension for Visual Studio Code. With this extension, developers can develop their own semantic skills on Semantic Kernel faster and with greater ease.

Semantic Kernel Tools provides a user-friendly interface that integrates seamlessly with the VS Code environment. The extension offers powerful tools for creating, testing, and debugging skills, as well as integrating them into existing projects.


The extension significantly lowers the barrier to entry for developers who are not as familiar with AI technologies. It provides a more accessible and intuitive development environment, allowing developers of all skill levels to leverage the power of Semantic Kernel in their projects.


By providing a streamlined development experience, developers can create and test new skills quickly and efficiently. This allows them to focus on the creative aspects of their projects, rather than getting bogged down in technical details.
With the ability to create custom skills, developers can tailor their projects to meet specific needs and goals. Whether it’s chat and conversation interaction, code generation or transformation, question-answering, or any other intended use case, Semantic Kernel Tools provides the flexibility and power needed to create innovative and impactful projects.
We believe that Semantic Kernel Tools represents a significant step forward in the development of AI technologies. By providing a user-friendly and accessible development environment, we hope to empower developers to create the next generation of AI-powered applications and services.


To get started with Semantic Kernel Tools, follow these simple steps:
  1.  Ensure that you have Visual Studio Code installed on your computer.
  2. Open Visual Studio Code and press Shift+Control+X to bring up the Extensions menu.
  3. In the Extensions menu, search for “Semantic Kernel Tools“.
  4. Select Semantic Kernel Tools from the search results and click the Install button.
  5. Wait for the installation to complete, then restart Visual Studio Code.
We can’t wait to see what you’ll create with Semantic Kernel Tools!
