Finally Microsoft think it is time to deliver Visual Studio Extension for Power Platform. Previously we got various community member contribution to facilitate the need. This new extension is not far different than those one’s but one interesting thing to note is it is still a preview version, there are room for more features and I guess we might get more feature in coming days. The documentation for this tool is also not complete which is also a good sign as there are plans for more features to come.
It got templates for different type of custom implementation that are in Power Platform.
But is this the alternative to Xrmtoolkit and D365 Developer Extensions ? I haven’t yet completely tried this tool, will keep update the post once I got a grasp of it and tell my experience. It is a very good initiative from Microsoft to finally think about the developers and help them with productivity tool.
