Colin's ALM Corner Custom Build Tasks
As Scott Hanselman says, "donations pay for tacos" (or low carb equivalent).
This repo contains custom tasks that meant to be used with Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Server.

yarn scripts are specified in the

yarn run to get a prompt of all the targets. The most important are:

The easiest way to open the source is to clone the repo and open in VSCode. If you change the .ts files, then run build (ctrl-shift-b) to compile the .js files.
Creating the Extension Package

To compile the extension, update the version number in the
