It’s finally here. Bicep is in Visual Studio!
In less than two years, Bicep’s VS Code extension has grown from zero users to more than 15 thousand a month. In addition to the Bicep extension’s success, millions of resources are now deployed with Bicep files via Azure CLI and Azure PowerShell. Our incredible community has not only shaped the suite of Bicep features we know and love today, but they also made it abundantly clear how important Visual Studio was to their daily workflow. We heard you, no more switching back and forth between editors!
Bicep extension for Visual Studio is now available on Windows for version 17.3 and higher!
This release is focused on improving the Bicep file authoring experience in Visual Studio. Features such as Bicep deploy and Bicep Visualizer are not yet included. The key features are:
- Snippets and tab completions
- Errors and warnings
- Hover info
- Highlighting and colorization
