Solidity support for Visual Studio code

Solidity is the language used in Ethereum to create smart contracts, this extension provides:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Snippets
  • Compilation of the current contract (Press F1 Solidity : Compile Current Solidity Contract), or F5
  • Compilation of all the contracts (Press F1 Solidity : Compile all Solidity Contracts), or Ctrl+F5 / Cmd+F5
  • Compilation supporting EIP82 (dappfile and dependency packages)
  • Support for different solidity versions
  • Experimental code generation using, it includes currently the default template for Nethereum service, dtos generation. (Open 'contractName.json' after compilation from the bin folder. Press F1 and press Solidity: Code generate from compilation output..) Please contribute more templates.

To compile using a different version of Solidity, for example latest or 'v0.4.3+commit.2353da71', use the user settings as follow:

"solidity.compileUsingRemoteVersion" : "latest"

Work in progress, any feedback appreciated.
